  1. Great school with flexible jobs

    Former Employee - Tutor in Salisbury, MD

    I worked at Salisbury University part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I was able to work as a tutor whenever I was available. Staff leaders were very nice and helpful. Well stocked on supplies to help tutors tutor other students.

    Cons

    Some disorganization which was inconvenient for a student-athlete with a full-time class load. Sometimes wouldn't receive money because student-workers accidentally skips over your folder containing your time sheet. Not necessarily a con but none very inconvenient none the less.


  2. Great place to work

    Pros

    Salisbury University is a great employer with some of the best benefits and culture that I've seen. There is quite a bit of inter office politics that can become overwhelming at times, however you generally feel respected as an employee.

    Cons

    There is no direct path of advancement. Moving between departments (at least in IT) can be fairly difficult. Managers tend to be protective of their employees (for better or for worse).

    Advice to Management

    Make clearer career paths and goals for your employees. If promotion is an easier more direct possibility complacency with employees would likely be lower.


  3. Decent

    Pros

    Department overall was great and very organized. Group was friendly and team oriented, family atmosphere. Flexible with work and class schedule.

    Cons

    Little to no communication between schools and departments. Pay was awful, even with tuition being covered and no benefits at all.

    Pros

    -Time to work on homework or relax in between calls/tasks. -They understand you're a student first. No pressure to come in if you have a test you need to study for or anything else academic related. -Most of the supervisors are sociable and allow you to get to know them on a personal level. -Lots of opportunities to work more hours. -Laid back environment.

    Cons

    -Occasionally there is drama and when it happens every knows about it (office gossip). -When a supervisor comes in with a funky attitude, it makes for an uncomfortable environment for the student technicians. -$10 an hour pay cap for student technicians.

    Advice to Management

    If I were the CTS boss I'd get rid of the $10 an hour pay cap for student technicians so that veteran student techs can be paid equivalent to their experience and time with the department. Also some of the supervisors are able to get away with slacking off or causing friction with no consequences. Thats got to stop. It diminishes professionalism. I'd also hire less student techs. At times there were too many students on the payroll and not enough hours to go around.

    Pros

    Job Security, Benefits are pluses. Co-workers are highly-educated and highly-professional. Most employees stay in their positions for lengthy periods of time.

    Cons

    Comparatively low pay. Institution is under-funded by the state compared to other USM schools. Little to no training available for non-exempt employees.

    Advice to Management

    There is not much I can say that would make a difference. So much of what transpires at institutions like this is dictated by the state, so the ability for the exec office to affect change is stifled.
