I worked at UMUC full-time for more than a year

Pros

The people, professional environment, and even ambiance... Even though that sounds a bit strange! The facilities are all extremely up-dated and technology is second to none.

Cons

Location is not metro-accessible and very difficult to get to if you don't have a car. I probably would not have accepted a job there if I didn't have one.

    I worked at UMUC full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Helpful coworkers
    Decent benefits including free parking
    Nice newly remodeled offices in Adelphi and up to date office space in Largo
    good faculty that provide quality higher education opportunities

    Cons

    Restructuring and reorganization have left staff guessing about layoffs
    Vision of management not communicated to staff
    It seems some departments have a growing budget while others are being cut
    No emphasis on growing the careers of the staff through training opportunities
    COLA in 2014 is first salary increase for all employees in many years

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to staff ideas rather than keep the status quo. At times management does not appear willing to change for the better. Applying bells and whistles does not address the communication issues.
