    Pros

    Very laid back atmosphere, good overall environment to work in. For the most part very nice staff and faculty at Missouri Western.

    Cons

    The main negative I've noticed with my time at MWSU is their struggle with the funding they have. Seems like there will never be room to move up the chain or create new positions.

    Advice to Management

    Try and do a better job of distributing the funds that they do have and build on bringing in more overall revenue at all costs.
