      Diverse, laid back atmosphere

      Oct. 10, 2022 - Librarian II in Salisbury, MD
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The racial and ethnic diversity is strong here, with faculty interested in doing even more to increase DEI. Other institutions that are much larger and draw more recognition nationally and internationally make sure their marketing photos are full of token students even when their campuses are not, but SU actually HAS the diversity others are quick to advertise.

      Cons

      This region of the state/country is very laid back. It can be difficult to adjust to not working 12-14 hours a day and instead trying to find non-work things to balance it out.

      Low Salaries for Faculty and Staff, (Very) High Salaries for Administrators

      Nov. 7, 2022 - Associate Professor 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The Student Experience is still good, but it is driven by the Faculty,. Yet, the Salisbury University Administration gives themselves very consistent raises, instead of the faculty.

      Cons

      The Salisbury University Administration is fundamentally dishonest. This is true of the Provost down to the Dean's level, with the majority of VPs in-between. If you value your sanity and quality of life, do not work for Salisbury University. I am leaving for a non-academic job mid-year. The mistreatment of faculty and staff by the administration has become simply too much to bear. The administration rules faculty and staff by fiat, rather than with any thought for those with their boots actually on the ground.

      Doesn't value faculty

      Sep. 5, 2022 - Professor 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Good students to work with

      Cons

      SU has a bloated and corrupt administration. Administrators have been fired for mismanaging and hiding money. Presidents retire, teach one class, and retain their presidential salary. Other administrators have gone back to the faculty, retained their former salaries and work a reduced load. In the meantime, the administration complains about budget problems. Faculty routinely experience harassment and discrimination while the institution works hard to sweep it under the rug. There is no reward for faculty excellence. Faculty who don't engage in scholarship or teaching are rewarded. Faculty who strive for excellence just receive more work. Small perks that faculty used to have (e.g. allowing family members to use recreational facilities) are gone.
