Fun workplace, full of learning and growing plants
Student Groundskeeper (Current Employee) – Springfield, MO – April 14, 2016
I learned how to properly take care of plants and what grows best where. On a typical day, I maintain plants and prepare flower beds. I enjoy my bosses and all of my coworkers. I like how we all work together on different projects as they arise and learn from each other. The hardest part of the job is working with large equipment to get a large project completed - such as tree removal, laying sod, etc. The most enjoyable part of the job is that I am able to work with an arborist on campus and learn how to do tree work. I also enjoy learning about the different plants and actually planting plants to make them enjoyable to others.
Productive and fun workplace with divers and great people to work with.

Centralized User Support Specialist (Current Employee) – Springfield, MO – February 23, 2015
I get to interact with a lot of faculty and staff, and they're all wonderful people. I've learned a lot working here in general. The institutional culture is slow to change and efficiency isn't always the sought after route to success here, but all in all it's a great place to work.
lots of pto, great benefits
rare merit based pay increases, bureaucracy stifles processes
Summer Maintenance (Former Employee) – Springfield, MO – November 22, 2015
I enjoyed my time working there. From the time I clock in to the time I clock out, they constantly keep me on my toes. I never got bored with my job, and I got along really well with the full time employees.
I enjoyed my time with Missouri State. The people are great, but the money isn't always the best depending on what you do.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Springfield, MO – April 3, 2015
I was a student worker, so I can't say that I'm surprised my compensation was lacking. I'm more than aware that the further up the chain you go, the better the compensation is. Missouri State is a great place to work.. if you can get an interview.
Interactive, productive, fun atmosphere working to help MSU students to succeed in their acedemic career.
Graduate Assistant for Graduate College, (Current Employee) – Springfield, MO – October 20, 2015
A typical day here in the Graduate College involves working as a team to insure that both students and faculty have the resources needed to be successful. I have learned not only the daily operations of administration in higher education, but also have a better understanding of the dynamics and group effort needed to improve policies and procedures to grow as a University.
Treatment Clinic Nurse (Former Employee) – Springfield, MO – December 3, 2015
Administration awful. Worst supervisory experience ever. Very poor staff morale. Staff complaints constant. Policies which jeopardize patient safety. Most other reviewers were student workers, not licensed professionals.
Financial Aid Counselor - Scholarships (Former Employee) – Springfield, MO – June 25, 2012
For a state school, they definitely act like a for-profit school. The managers make hundreds of thousands of dollars while the average employee makes close to minimum wage. Plus, there is not much room for movement since the managers have it so good.
