Great coworkers, moving up is open if you are willing to work.

Make changes, make things easier.

Cons

Salary is mediocre and doesn't provide much for reward.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Not much can be done because the state seems to regulate everything.
The only advice I can give be open to constructive critiques, it will reduce turnover rates.

    I have been working at UMUC full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    -Decent starting salary
    -People think you work at College Park
    -"Diverse" enough to be a Historically Black College

    Cons

    -No accountability/training
    -Cannot rely on any department
    -Call center advising
    -Bitter students who never earned a degree

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change from a call center to actual advising. Hold EVERY department to quality assurance standards. It doesn't make sense to "quality assure" advising and advising's quality of work is reliant on every other department. Seriously, the job is a call center.
