  4. "Overall good place to work!"

    Current Employee - Senior Accountant in Columbia, MO
    Current Employee - Senior Accountant in Columbia, MO

    Pros

    Work/life balance
    Bosses are nice and understanding
    Get help where you need it
    Job security
    Great, cheap health and dental benefits

    Cons

    Promised growth may take many years
    Political environment
    Raises are across the board and you have to move positions to make money (but it is possible)

    Advice to Management

    Change the merit increases strategy and make it to where staff salaries cannot be looked up by everyone. It puts management in a poor negotiating stance with worthy employees.

  10. "Grad Student"

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at University of Missouri part-time

    Pros

    Individual Departments and Sub-Departments can feel like families with a lot of potential for interdisciplinary collaboration.

    Cons

    Greater University culture and atmosphere was quite toxic: racism, ethnocentrism, sexism, ableism, religious persecution, high crime rate (I received, on average, 1 internal campus police report of rape per week - some of which were reported happening within the locked dorms, also weekly mugging and assault reports on campus - usually at night, but not always), one of the student housing buildings (apartments, not dorm) actually collapsed and killed someone, incredibly high murder rate per capita in Columbia area, a lot of false "nationalist and patriot" cultural propaganda mixed with a false sense of school-identity superiority and inflated entitlement, management cares more about making money (despite being a public university) than protecting or providing quality educational environment to the students (at all levels of education)..... note: these are my personal perspective and observations.

    Advice to Management

    The state should consider complete and total overhaul of the entire management system for the entire network of universities - preferably using a model which utilizes both the university's core values AND scientific self-updating from actual measured data to make decisions and judge progress.
