    Pros

    Very relaxed atmosphere, 75% off tuition for yourself, 50% off tuition for your children, paid day off on snow days, decent insurance, matching retirement funds.

    Cons

    Many decisions are made by Columbia and then trickle down to the UMSL campus. These decisions are not often in UMSLs best interest. Additionally, directors and above make critical decisions with little to no input from those who will live with those decisions. Pay is also well below average. UMSL is always crying about lack of funds but a tremendous amount of money is spent on new buildings and special projects. Departments spend money like its going out of style and it is frequently wasted in one form or another.

    Advice to Management

    Increase pay

    Pros

    There was a very friendly atmosphere among the staff and everybody worked together as a team. It was just like one big happy family. The hours for this position were ideal as it was often between classes and the hourly wage was above minimum wage.

    Cons

    The cons of this position was that the hours were very irregular. One semester I may have over 20hrs a week of work, and other semesters I'd be lucky if I had even 5hrs. Another disadvantage was that more hours were only available during midterms or finals week, which often became overload if you were a student yourself and preparing for your own exams.

    Pros

    Chance to learn and grow in the position, seems to be plenty of room for advancement, benefits package has nice amount of vacation/sick time.

    Cons

    The UM system determines top-level policies that don't always seem to be in the best interest of the UMSL's needs. The pay isn't great in comparison to non-academic similar positions.

    Advice to Management

    Stop taking yourself so seriously as an institution and reach out to the community, and prospective students in a more earnest, fun, and forthcoming way.

    Pros

    If you have children, you can get a reduction on tuition.

    Cons

    As an employee I found that the University was more concerned with keeping the campus in Columbia happy then caring about taking care of the St. Louis students.

    Advice to Management

    Grow a pair!!!!
