    I have been working at University of Missouri full-time

    Pros

    The University of Missouri has great benefits - although retirement is reduced every year or couple of years.

    Cons

    The School of Medicine is too "clique-ish". Employee dysfunctional behavior is tolerated if the employee is "friends" with the manager. Employee reviews are only given annually - you can get in a situation where you're surprised at your annual review - despite asking for more frequent reviews.

    Advice to Management

    Train the division managers how to actually manage employees and require frequent communication and reviews of employees.
