I worked at UMUC as an intern (less than a year)

Pros

The management is sufficient. The atmosphere at work is diverse and upbeat. New technological software is implemented often, making the job easier. Though the work is repetitive, there is never the same day twice here in the Office of Student Accounts.

Cons

Very hard to get proper recognition for a job well done.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please recognize the employees that make a difference to your department. Allowing those that make multiple mistakes to continue to work while not giving those associates that are non-exempt the chance to replace them is counter productive. Especially when you have the non-exempt associates fixing their mistakes!

    Former Employee - Academic Advisor in Adelphi, MD

    I worked at UMUC part-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Independent position with decent salary (although with furloughs). Well funded with lots of gadgets. Rewarding job helping people.

    Cons

    HUGE turnover and no respect for those with longevity. Little reward no matter how hard you work. Management was in early 20's and didn't have clue, would not listen to established employees, and worked hard to make a good job difficult and communication limited. Had over 10 weeks of vacation accumulated yet new management wanted 3 weeks notice to take a personal day to attend son's field trip.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look into mature individuals and cut some of the fluff from top. Hire people under fair rules instead of promoting friends into positions they aren't ready for.

    I worked at UMUC full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Nice office. There is not much work

    Cons

    There is no politics like university politics. The smaller the pie, the more fierce the fight. UMUC is a small university with 1000 some employees. Senior managers think they are the best in the world. The only thing they lead is the number of employee disputes per 100 employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let's not be so arrogant.
