I have been working at UMBC part-time for less than a year

Pros

I discovered I am able to work with a variety of personalities on tight deadlines, and I was given a great opportunity to learn those skills. In fact, I found out that my co-workers were creative in finding ways of improving their surroundings.

Cons

I found out that university bureaucracy does not allow for the most creative expression. In other words, the university limited my ability by creative rigid and inflexible style guide requirements.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Develop a better understanding of the work before criticizing the improvements required.

    I have been working at UMBC full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Excellent education reputation and well deserved. Happy students, well run school. President Hrabowski is smart and committed to the school.

    Cons

    Parking is always a problem for both staff and students. Lay offs and unpaid furlough days always hanging in the air as possibilities at the will of the state budget.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop promoting people for the big jobs just because they have worked for the school forever. Doesn't mean they know what to do or how to run a division.
