    I have been working at University of Missouri full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Generally has good job security, the staff employee culture is generally very friendly and helpful, lots of great people here. Excellent benefits and more time off than I know what to do with.

    Cons

    Academia is a little different world from the private sector and there do exist a certain number of people that think they are entitled to whatever they want whenever they want it simply because they are faculty or because of their title.

    Advice to Management

    As of Fall 2017, I see some very positive steps to curb waste and run more efficiently. It would be nice to see more emphasis on actual management qualifications for those in charge of programs instead of simply being "An expert in their field." Likewise, there needs to be a greater appreciation for the expertise some of the staff bring to their jobs. Just because someone doesn't have a Phd doesn't make them inferior within their specialty.

    I have been working at University of Missouri full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I really enjoy the people I work with. I feel like the management cares about me and my professional development.
    The health benefits are incredible.

    Cons

    For some positions, the salaries are impressive. For staff, I believe the salaries could be better.
    Recently, there have been several cuts made at the University. This is a con but was also unavoidable.

    Advice to Management

    I would suggest that they unfreeze salaries. I have gone two years without an annual raise and, compared to similar positions in other institutions, my salary is very low.

    Pros

    Beautiful campus, low cost of living, very livable city

    Cons

    Incompetent or absent leadership from administration, bad regional and national reputation, budget cuts, hiring freezes, salary freezes

    Advice to Management

    Faculty morale is extremely low, retention will be a major issue for a while. If Mizzou wants to recover, it needs to have faculty who feel supported who will in turn elevate the university. Make unfreezing faculty salaries a priority.

    I worked at University of Missouri part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It is a welcoming and open-minded environment, with possibility of being integrated and committed to the school community. Enjoyed working at the Office of Student Involvement every second of it.

    Cons

    None. Maybe if you live far away the commute might be too long because of traffic. But I would definitely consider going back there.

    Advice to Management

    None
