Systems Administrator (Current Employee) – Maryland – August 27, 2016
Enjoy working with co-workers. Working with employees in other departments. Many fun social events - picnics, spring fair, Christmas parties. Raises have been lacking lately due to budget cuts. Promotion take time. Seen two type of employees - those who like working at CSM and are CSM lifers until retirement and those who don't and leave within a year or so.
Program Lab Assistant (Current Employee) – La Plata, MD – August 19, 2016
The College is a great place to work. My department in particular is very laid back. We have just gone through management training so getting every one on board with that has been difficult. When I was hired I was told to do my job a certain way and now that I am under a new director she has changed things a lot which has caused some conflict.
You will be overworked and severely underpaid. You will never get a raise because HR will say there is no money but you will read articles in the Enterprise about the College president receiving $20,000 annual raises along with a car, home, golden parachute, etc. If you like being overworked for very little money and no appreciation this is the place for you. Good luck.
CSM is a great place to work; the staff is friendly and work collaboratively to meet goals and deadlines. I enjoy the family oriented feel that's ever-present. A typical work day is full of laughter and emails! Appointments, appointments, appointments! My co-workers are very helpful, if you are new, everyone helps you; they even go out of their way to assist you with your work. Human resources are very friendly as well, the all day training came with lunch of your choice!
Air conditioning gets pretty serious, bring a sweater!
Busy and Slow, How a Office Environment works and what to do in a office. The Management here could work on there people stills better. The Co-works here are very friendly and respectful here. The hardest part about this job that im leaving here or then that nothing. love the people i work with.

Business Office Student Assistant (Former Employee) – Leonardtown, MD – April 11, 2015
Typical day at work would included helping college kids and their parents make a payment, register for classes, answering incoming calls and transferring them to the right department. I would keep close books down for the night and get ready for the next day of business.

Student Assistant (Current Employee) – La Plata, MD – March 4, 2014
My typical day at work has minimal supervision, but supervisors are supportive and available when needed. My co-workers are fun and likeable people who are always willing to help. The hardest part of my job, which is a skill that I have improved on, is maintaining patience. The most enjoyable part of my job is the flexibility.
