    Pros

    UMD College Park campus is a relaxed atmosphere nice grounds close to route 1 easy commute

    Cons

    Hard to advance within the university especially if you've been here for a few years, most departments would rather start new employees at the low end of the pay scale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire within the university
