    Positive Outlook

    I worked at University of Missouri St Louis (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some supervisors give lots of autonomy to do my job. Loved working with students. Very flexible hours. Convenient to work and take classes. Many jobs come with tuition assistance.

    Cons

    Some supervisors are micro-managers. Overall it was a very good experience through my different positions at the university. I just need to run out the minimum word count now.

    Advice to Management

    Most managers don't need any advice. They do what they do very well and everyone is happy. Other managers need to listen to their employees, especially when those employees are specialists in an area the manager knows nothing about.

    I have been working at University of Missouri St Louis full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I work off-campus at an UMSL research institution. We have an incredibly flexible work schedule and culture. Many employees are able to work from home, and are able to set their own schedule. As an added bonus, you earn a lot of vacation time (17 days) per year. The work within the institute is very diverse, and there are opportunities to collaborate with other departments.

    Cons

    It is hard to get a raise or get a promotion. As a consequence, many employees are compensated below market value. UMSL salaries are public and searchable on google.

    Advice to Management

    I love it here
