    I have been working at Missouri State University part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Relaxed place to work, supportive staff and faculty, many different ways to learn on the job, lots of benefits although limited for part time staff, and lots of protocol put in place to protect employees. MSU really cares about the whole well being of their employees and students.

    Cons

    Budgets cuts have hurt everyone this year some of us had our positions entirely cut due to the cuts.

    Advice to Management

    Always be ready to step in when Vendors get confused and irritated when there isn't a real place to back a truck into in. Otherwise, thanks for taking care of us and having letters of recommendation ready for us during this horrible time.
