    I have been working at University of Wyoming part-time

    Pros

    The professors in the statistics department are extremely supportive and go above and beyond to help students. As a graduate assistant, I have never felt overworked.

    Cons

    This program is disorganized in many ways. Make sure you get a program of study, because the requirements are in flux.

    I have been working at University of Wyoming part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Location is fantastic if you like the outdoors and cost of living is low. Faculty and staff are great to work with and knowledgeable. Lots of opportunity in the state for certain types of research.

    Cons

    Look at the recent "Great Colleges to Work For" survey giving by the Chronicles of Higher Education. The realization that Faculty and Staff are not happy with administration and the general operations of the university is not new and has been going on for at least 8 years (at a steady and surprising decline). Many faculty and staff have left.

    Advice to Management

    Give departments the resources needed to get stuff done and keep paperwork up-to-date. It is evident that resources are distributed fairly across the university when the fiscal year ends in June and there is still no budgets to access for the people spending the money. Software should only be roled out when it works and if something doesn't work it should be swiftly fixed. With limited staff and bad management software people are unable to do their job. Also, stop forming committees to address problems and do something.
