    I worked at Notre Dame of Maryland University full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -The students are a bit different from students at a bigger university but they are very loving and academic focused.
    -The community is aesthetically pleasing.
    -They are very inclusive...seemingly. Depending on your intersections, it may vary.
    -The institution looks good from the outside looking in.

    Cons

    - Stipend was below national & state average set at $7k for the year!! May have gone up $1k since I have left, but it still is below cost of living.
    - You are overworked & underpaid
    -No support for lower level administration/staff
    -Often treated as though you were not a part of the community due to this position being a graduate position yet it held the responsibility of a full-time staff member. In essence, you were treated as if you were expendable.
    -Microaggressions are preached against, but used on a daily basis with no concern.
    -After some time working there, one will notice that the institution & its employee are actually bitter and complains about small things often.
    -Resources are minimal to none.
    -Student Life Staff assistants spend time talking about their colleagues to students instead of helping to advance/improve morale.
    -Turnover is extremely high.
    -The "suite" they offer is located next door to students while the Director and student life program assistant are housed in the RD apartments. This offers no privacy which makes it difficult to maintain a work/life balance, and makes one question the institution's financial state since they offer housing for positions which typically are not housed on-site.
    -The position comes with a meal plan to the campus dining hall which has often made students and staff members sick.
    -Morale is super low and favoritism plays a big part in what one can do and how one advances.

    Advice to Management

    Work on being more proactive. Many of the issues that the university faces could be prevented. Listen to the students and take their suggestions into consideration.

    Pros

    The students make every day brighter.

    Cons

    This is not a place for people of color, people with ambition and/or people looking to further their career. This is your typical "over worked and under paid" environment. Horrible turn over rate. No staff appreciation. Not inclusive to all people, only a select few. This university environment spews microagressions and closeted racism in most departments/divisions while it simultaneously holds monthly forums to preach against these very things. Very few people actually enjoy working at the university and will voice their negative opinions daily. Very toxic work environment; will just take from you without giving anything in return. Extremely stressful. Not worth the hassle.

    Advice to Management

    Don't cut corners. Be proactive, not reactive. Appreciate your faculty/ staff. Be inclusive.
