    I have been working at University of Wyoming full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Coming to Wyoming is great because you will be able to get lots of individualized attention (the classes are very small). Also, the professors are very accessible and the support from other campus services (financial aid, office of the register, exc..) are always prompt and able to resolve most issues in one trip.

    Cons

    The city is very small: there is not very much to do here and if you want more than Walmart you will have to travel two hours or so. Additionally due to the small size of the school there are a lot of just awful teachers for the low level entry classes, making learning difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue with improvements to campus, keep the student activities (especially the Friday night drinking alternative ones - as almost everyone drinks), and continue to keep the low tuition.

    Pros

    Good people around. Job satisfaction depends on the department and faculty you work for.

    Cons

    Weather is challenging. Also compensation depends on the department. Some are as high as 25000/year, but most of the department pay base salary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not much. Keep the good work.

    Pros

    Friendly, easy going atmosphere. Easy to get help when needed. Everyone is very passionate about their work.

    Terrible pay. Raises are rare and when they do come they are a joke. No career here just a stagnant job. high turnover rate due to these three factors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start becoming competitive in pay and make it worth our time to work here.
