    I worked at University of Baltimore full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Faculty are great. They do so much with so little, that I find my colleagues to be some of the most innovative educators I have had the honor to work with.
    Our students are dedicated, and some of the most interesting and professional students I have had the honor to work with. I really loved our student body, they made my time at UB rewarding.

    Cons

    Our provost has a 1980's higher ed mentality. She doesn't see the forest through the trees and , unfortunately, isn't that bright a manager. Because of this... junior faculty are running for the exit. We lost four last year (unheard of at other universities). If you teach in the liberal arts, this isn't the place for you right now. Our provost favors failing business school programs and low enrolled law school over the other colleges. We also were furloughed last year... so keep that in mind. What you negotiate for your starting salary will be your salary for a LONG time.

    Advice to Management

    I left after tenure because I could not see any significant movement at UB in the implementation of a sustainable business model. I think we need new leadership at UB. Our product is fantastic.

    I have been working at University of Baltimore full-time

    Pros

    There are some very nice people working there, and very helpful administrative staff. The compensation is competitive.

    Cons

    Its a smaller of the University of Maryland system schools so sometimes the bugs aren't always worked out in policy implementation. Sometimes it takes longer than it should to get responses. I think that the budget issues due to low enrollment stem from not being proactive enough from the start of the decline of lower enrollment but they seem to be taking a forceful approach to adapt and redesign.
