I worked at UMBC part-time (more than an year)

Pros

Co-workers are awesome. There's a lot of freedom in designing one's teaching curriculum. Classrooms are being updated to include the latest technologies, which make it more pleasant for those of us who like to travel into a work area with as few extra materials as possible.

Cons

Pay is about average for government work. Parking can be costly or difficult to find because the school keeps taking out parking lots to put in new buildings. Scheduling classrooms to teach in can be extremely disheartening.

    I have been working at UMBC as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    I worked in the chemistry department doing research with one of the professors. I have to say it was a great and enlightening experience to the world of chemistry. I absolutely loved doing it and we were constantly dealing with new, never before made materials.

    Cons

    The only down side is that this wasn't a paid position; but I think the experience gained is more than enough compensation.

    I worked at UMBC part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The University of Maryland Baltimore County has great, caring people, who really take the time to help students and fellow-employees in any they can.

    Cons

    Some of the Humanities departments struggle with budgetary concerns, as the main focuses of the school are the STEM departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management does a great job in spite of the focus on STEM. The Humanities and Arts are very well represented.
