Our human environment is informal and collegial, with an essentially flat management hierarchy and no barriers to communication. The tone of the office is light and often humorous, but serious when it comes to our professional commitments to clients. The culture is one of continual improvement, where everyone’s ideas are valued. The physical environment is attractive and comfortable, with offices in a Beaux-Arts style firehouse converted for our use in 1980 and renovated in 2007. Our neighborhood is the culturally rich, diverse, and energetic west side of Baltimore’s central district, near the University of Maryland professional schools, the Enoch Pratt main library, the Walters Art Museum, the Peabody Conservatory of Music, the “World Famous” Lexington Market, and public transportation hubs.
Our creative staff members have the benefit of generous mentorship from award-winning professionals and leaders in higher education marketing.
Everyone’s efficiency is enhanced by expert, on-staff technical, production, and print-buying resources. We use advanced systems to simplify handling of virtually all routine management tasks. We support a wide range of professional development opportunities and encourage staff members to take advantage of them.
Our compensation packages are competitive and include model 401K and pension programs along with generous vacations and holidays.
Hot coffee and cold soft drinks are always free.
(If you consider being treated as a responsible adult compensatory, include it here.)
We want very smart people with a strong interest in higher education advancement and a desire to apply their energy and creativity to it.
We want people who play well with others—who enjoy ideas and the fun of generating, trading, arguing, and testing them.
(A peerless work ethic goes without saying.)
