    I have been working at Morgan State University full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Time off policies and compensation is decent. Professional President in Dr. David Wilson who is implementing changes.

    Cons

    Some disorganization with lack of harmonious policies enforcement. Every department seems to do its own thing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open up more channels of communication and hold all staff accountable.

    Pros

    Interaction between most motivated students and faculty is great. University is growing and moving in the right direction thanks to a great President.

    I worked at Morgan State University full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The best reason to work at MSU is the tuition waiver. It not only applies to Morgan but to all of the schools in the University System of Maryland. I definitely learned a lot about how to deal with multiple people of various ethnicities at varying levels.

    Cons

    Morgan is on the lower end of the pay scale within the University System. We went without merit increases and cost of living raises for four years.

    Current Employee - Lecturer in Baltimore, MD

    I have been working at Morgan State University full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Educating students and preparing them for their careers. Flexibility of a teaching position has allowed me to develop some areas of scholarship and authorship.

    Cons

    Low salary, poor employee support, unfair distribution of recognition. Environment and support structure like a community college, but expectations are those of a Harvard and MIT.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a community of (truly) satisfied educators and students and give it time. You will see the school blossom. Right now, employee morale and student quality are both going down.

    Pros

    Working at Morgan State has been a great opportunity for me. The professors have been courteous and helpful in every opportunity I have faced. If given another opportunity I would do it again.

    Cons

    Not many but since the university is in a transition phase with a new president, there are stil some old values that need to be left in the past. Other than that not much to dislike.
