    I worked at University of Missouri

    Pros

    Interesting and varied duties. Opportunity to learn new computer skills for free. Lovely campus. Located in the center of the city so easy to run errands at lunch time or after work.

    Cons

    No mentoring. Don't take a staff job if it is the highest title in a department - you can't get promoted. Over time the staff workload has increased dramatically due to high enrollments, but salaries have stagnated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Institute a standardized business policy and implement a mentoring problem. Staff often feel isolated and under valued.

    It was great experience

    Former Employee - Marketing Coordinator in Columbia, MO (US)

    I worked at University of Missouri as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    I did an internship for the Women's Volleyball team. It was good marketing experience, learning to build plans scratch and working with a diverse team. My boss was great.

    Cons

    It was unpaid. I was forced to work with a person who actively worked against me at every turn. It was a lesson on how to work with people I guess

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider some base compensation. I had to get a second job to make some money that summer because the internship was unpaid.
