    Former Employee - Adjunct Instructor in Largo, MD
    Former Employee - Adjunct Instructor in Largo, MD

    I worked at UMUC part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    In the upper-level classes, the students are competent and motivated
    Supportive administration
    Flexible scheduling, since most classes are online
    Pays a bit more than other local colleges

    Cons

    UMUC is pretty prescriptive in its online platform and in course content
    The eight-week semesters reduce the quality of instruction/learning and make it difficult to keep up with the workload.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rethink the commitment to the eight-week format.

    Current Employee - Coordinator in Adelphi, MD

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

    Pros

    Great coworkers, moving up is open if you are willing to work.
    Volunteer for projects and be innovative.
    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.
