Budget Project Assistant to the Dean of Faculty (Current Employee), Baltimore, MD – June 9, 2014
Cons: healthcare cost, and recent employee cuts.
A typical day in the dean's office consist of me approving and submitting payment requests for payment. I work in the dean's office with 4 administrators and 2 staff persons. I've learned a bit about grants, donor funds, and budgets versus rollover dollars. Basically the hardest part of my job is the work load. Everything flows beautifully on an average – more... work-day, but considering I am the only person in the office who does the budget, my load heightens tremendously when I am out of the office for any reason. The best part of my job is the awesome team members. – less
Admin Asst, Student Life (Former Employee), Student Life – January 3, 2014
Pros: free workshops in software
Most co workers are under the age of 30; benefits are great, staff pay is very low; perks are good (vaycay & parties). But...workload is overwhelming to even the most seasoned worker. Not enough money in the world to offset the stress so much work creates. Hiring is very slow - sometimes takes 6-8 months after your first interview to be offered the – more... job. HR is like a behemoth archaic dinosaur that moves at snail's pace. They're not on the side of the worker, more so with faculty and administrators, especially in the area of pay increases. You can work your butt off and no one notices the good you do, until you make a mistake. Very friendly campus, beautiful setting, lots of training available to advance one's career - if you can survive your job. . – less
