Internship (Former Employee) – Baltimore, MD – September 12, 2018
My opinion of a typical day of work was good, fun, not basic. I have learned or furthered my education of Math and Reading which was interesting . My management was okay. The workplace culture was very interesting, not restless. The hardest part of the job was transferring to school after making nice associates. The most enjoyable about the job was the associates, the teachers, lunches, etc.
It is not an exciting place to work and upper management doesn't really listen to the concerns of Adjunct Professors.
Adjunct Math Professor (Current Employee) – Baltimore, MD – April 8, 2018
It is not a great place to work as there are never any pay raises or room for advancement. There is no diversity in the daily routine of the job. There are no positive changes year to year. The culture is very boring.
Academic Program Specialist (Former Employee) – Baltimore, MD – October 15, 2018
What I learned at UB is, handwork doesn't always pay off. A few members of management need to be terminated for ethical issues. Environment breeds divide. Co-workers are not helpful. Union is not active enough.
The most enjoyable part of this job was helping others and sharing my knowledge and experience with younger students. I felt good about the positive feedback I received after helping a student solve a particularly difficult problem.
I work on contract and work-study in the office of admission at University of Baltimore so I can obtain my Bachelor degree in Finance. It's a flexible job that respected my academic demands. I preferred more hours, but they can only allow me to 20 hours a week. The management at the office admiss are great, they personable they are helpful and I learned a great deal from the counselors and staff there. There are really no hard parts of the job. It's mostly clerical duties and data management.; but the most tedious parts is the filing of transcripts, applications, and other paperwork from processing. I love interacting with the incoming students and helping them enroll on school. That in itself has its own rewards.
Social Media Ambassador (Former Employee) – Baltimore, MD – October 8, 2018
As an ambassador, I had access to the University's Snapchat account. We would interview students and prepare segments to showcase students. We would attend and give event coverage on the account to show some of the things that happen at school
Assistant Director (Former Employee) – Baltimore, MD – September 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.
work/life balance, little opportunity for advancement
Research Interviewer (Former Employee) – Baltimore, MD – August 13, 2018
My work was primarily in the field however whenever I needed something from the office I just stopped by and my questions were answered. I also stopped into the office bi-weekly I would stop in the office to turn in my timesheet and travel forms.
Tech Support (Former Employee) – Baltimore, MD – July 9, 2018
This service was very important to the campus of University Of Baltimore because it required us to make sure we handled majority of the technology issues around the school. It's our job to utilize what we've been trained & use it to our advantage outside work as well. Students and staff always loved our commitments and efforts to always stay on top of issues.
My job here was technically work study but I loved it
Financial aid Specialist (Former Employee) – Baltimore, MD – May 20, 2018
I liked it here. the people are nice, you're close to downtown and the food spots in the area is good. its smack dab in the middle of busy streets but my experience here as a student and worker was fine
stress free, friendly environment, diverse, close to downtown Baltimore/harbor, public transit access
no football/basketball teams, no fraternities, no sororities, in the middle of busy streets, parking
