    Admin Asst

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

    ConsComparatively 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 Senior ManagementThere 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.

    Toxic, discriminatory work environment, avoid

    Associate Professor (Current Employee)
    Salisbury, MD

    ProsOcean City short drive away. Some students are bright.

    ConsToxic work environment. Old professoriate that avoids research (some don't even have PhDs). Discriminatory and prejudiced, watch out if you're not an eastern shore native. Resistant to achievement. Insular, inward looking, parochical, hate change and progress. No standards. Vicious, misogynistic old boys network.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of the old guard. Create welcoming and supportive work environment. Backup lip service and commitments with actions, women and faculty of color always complaining. Give higher pay. Reduce workload. Monitor and regulate departments more closely.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great students - poor leadership

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsWonderful location. Great faculty - those who are not waiting to retire. Fun place for students - on campus. Great new buildings.

    ConsPoor leadership at all levels. Inconsistent action versus mission. Don't want faculty to excel. Lip service to student centricity.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt's time for new leadership now that the buildings are built. Retain your top talent and provide a place where your develop and reward nationally recognized faculty. Support faculty who are providing national exposure to your students. Quit your hate of the business school.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
