    I worked at Towson University full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Urban location. University amenities (library, gym, events). Good for work/life balance

    Cons

    This university is more backwards than the Republican party. Women, minorities, and young professionals all feel discriminated against. Management is extremely hierarchical. The staff are so demoralized that they do not do their job. Tons of turnover because everyone is trying to leave. The faculty are also underpaid and demoralized. The administrators turn a blind eye to discriminatory practices. Human resources do not help out employees that are being treated unfairly. I worked in Facilities Management which was the worst of them all. Student Affairs is probably the best. Run away!

    I worked at Towson University as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Staff is very friendly, they really want you to succeed in your position and are willing to help in whatever way they can.

    Cons

    Somewhat unrealistic expectations of RA in certain buildings. For example I worked as a RA in Millennium, and I had 83 residents on my floor as opposed to the 20 something at other buildings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't try to hard to be diverse, just give the opportunity for diversity to flourish.
