Promising and uncompromising
Assistant Director (Former Employee) –  Baltimore, MDSeptember 5, 2016
UB is an excellent value for individuals seeking to gain a graduate degree. Their MBA and MPA programs are affordable and noteworthy. The employment forum, however, is a hard sell. The bureaucratic structure often precludes positive ideas, which may enhance the institution's objectives from being realized. There is a scaffold set up from top to bottom for any real change in policy. My office was comprised of two highly skilled and motivated individuals charged with increasing the international footprint on campus. With a null budget we managed to increase the enrollment by 40%. The prospects for this to be maintained may be wavering. Massive turnover in enrollment management and a high-stress work environment leads to a perpetual revolving door, where consistency and historical knowledge is lost. The economic situation facing the UM university consortium with respect to state budgets and dissolving liquidity will prove to be additional challenges in retaining talent. MD state benefits are extraordinary.

Upbeat, fast paced job
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Baltimore, MD 21201March 1, 2016
On this job I worked for several people, approximately 9 professors and 11 adjunct professors. I serviced hundreds of students and had to be the liaison between the professors, the students, the staff and U of B, and the public. This job taught me a lot about clerical work, office management, being a team player, working with different personalities, troubleshooting, organizing and planning, writing, and so much more. It was an awesome experience.
Pros
Great opportunity to grow

Great potential but Identity Crisis
Mid level manager (Former Employee) –  Baltimore, MDJune 12, 2015
This university sits in the middle of Baltimore City and has softened its admissions requirements allowing a lot of first time in the family college students access. This is great except, the services this type of student needs are not found or are poorly funded and under employed.
Also, the university lacks a clear understanding of where it is going or even who it is. Aging and antiquated senior level management styles are found all over campus that continue to stifle the University progress and direction..Budgets are poorly management and the university if wildly understaffed yet pay outrageous sums of money to upper level management.
The University recently acquired a new President and with it there was a sense of hope. A year later, with almost no visible changes or "splash" the window of opportunity has eroded.
This small university is great in terms of the people. The overworked staff are fantastic and really go the extra mile. The pay can be decent as well as the personal flexibility.
If this school can turn over the old dinosaurs that seem to run it (all VP and above) there is serious potential to again be the hidden gem of Baltimore City
Pros
really good people that care about students, pay, flexability
Cons
understaffed, old management style, old ideas

Coordinator of Student Activities (Current Employee) –  Baltimore, MDJanuary 19, 2015
Working within a university is a great place to work. You are exposed to many different topics, and are given opportunities to work on tasks outside of your normal daily operations. In all, I loved my time at the University of Baltimore.
Pros
flexible work schedule, skill development opportunities, liberal leave package, tuition remission
Cons
the hours can be a little much, especially when students are in session.

Part Time Jobs During College Enrollment (Former Employee) –  Baltimore, MDJanuary 6, 2015
The University of Baltimore's College of Public Affairs provided me with an excellent opportunity to learn more about my university while working for a well known accredited institution. A typical day at UB's COPA (College of Public Affairs) involved organizing file cabinets containing information on faculty and adjunct professors, maintaining the dean's itinerary, and updating his monthly calendar. My co-workers always maintained a professional and positive demeanor.
Pros
great people, opportunities to learn
Cons
long hours
