    I worked at University of Maryland Eastern Shore part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    It is a great place to start for people who have little to no experience. Conducive environment for growth and learning.

    Cons

    Only thing I can think of is its location, it's located in a rural area, so if you're the type who enjoys city living, it's not a place for yoj

    Great mission and good people

    I have been working at University of Maryland Eastern Shore full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    UMES has a great mission, which makes the hard work worth it. Slower pace of life on the Eastern Shore shows, where people appreciate hard work and it is easy to form good relationships with co-workers and students.

    Cons

    Some areas have 'legacy' employees that may not put in the effort that others do. However, that is probably an issue with every institution.

    Former Employee - Adjunct Professor in Princess Anne, MD

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

    Pros

    The University of Maryland Easter Shore has a beautiful campus in Princess Anne Maryland with enormous potential to be a wonderful learning experience for participants.
    There are many opportunities to gain experience as a faculty or administrator.

    Cons

    The university has many obstacles to its growth and development.
    1) Frequent changes in administration make it difficult to implement meaningful lasting change. 2) A business model that does not operate effectively with the surrounding community. 3) Many infrastructure problems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The campus at UMES needs stable effective management team that can implement a change model for a highly diverse institution over 10-15 years.

    Doesn't Recommend
