    Great learning environment, students are given respect and most of the supervisors are previous students which helps connect with them as a student worker.

    I have been working at University of Missouri St Louis (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits are good: 75% of tuition if you want to take classes (50% off for spouse and dependents), United Health Care Plan ( Love! especially if you use the health savings plan and the reward benefits that give you an extra 450 per year), accumulating sick time and vacation time with 4 personal days.

    There's also room for growth if you were wanting to move up but it's always about who you know. So talk to people and make sure they know your name (in a good way that is; not b/c you did something bad or made a mistake)

    Cons

    Being on the bottom of the totem pole sucks. Everyone think they are above you and titles are very important. It's your job to do the things no one else wants to do (like clean up their mess and do their jobs)

    Advice to Management

    Treat people with value and like people.
