    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Towson University for less than a 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 Management

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

    I worked at Towson University full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Provide students with the opportunity to go to school and work free room and board stipend

    Cons

    Supervisors that have been there for a long time do not care about the job anymore and it shows as they have little drive to do good things for the department and students. unfriendly and entitled attitudes from supervisors treat employees as if they are disposable during some of the most trying times in their lives.

    Advice to Management

    If you ask your staff to have a better attitude towards training and other aspects of the job please make sure you are also doing this.

    I worked at Towson University for more than a year

    Pros

    Working for Housing and Residence Life can be fun for those who enjoy working with students, especially the main clients are from the freshmen and sophomores of the school. You help those students grow to transition to maturity and being professional, and that is making a difference.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy and power politics made HRL department a place in which you have to withhold many of your characteristics, and may not to be the level you feel comfortable or to be confident to claim as "being professional".

    Advice to Management

    If you have some people in the mid- to high level supervising and is heavy-handed in supervising student leaders, it may be very hard to change the hypocrisy in the department.
