I worked at University of Maryland as a contractor (more than an year)

Pros

The only pro was that it at least paid something.

Cons

No classroom equipment, absent administration, no office space for adjuncts, last-minute schedule changes (we're talking the first day of class).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get computers into the classrooms to professors don't have to bring their own laptops to try to hook up to projectors. Hire enough full-time faculty to cover the classes you want to offer. Stop exploiting adjuncts to teach absolutely everything.

    I have been working at University of Maryland

    Pros

    Laid-back work culture. Comparatively inexpensive to live around.

    Cons

    Very rigid rules. Lethargic and resists change meant to modernize. Likes to stick to the old easy ways.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need your employees as much as they need you. Take their feedback seriously
