    I worked at University of Maryland

    Pros

    The office is very comfortable. Employees are very friendly and willing to help if you are having trouble. Intern space is also open so Interns can talk to each other freely. Small office so everybody is a stone throw away

    Cons

    A little unstructured. Sometimes you are thrown against the wall to figure things out yourself and this can be a bit overwhelming.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I like CapWIN so I don't have too many suggestions. Mostly I would advise giving a little more structure to the interns.

    I worked at University of Maryland

    Pros

    Access to university laboratories and research. Professors were very intelligent and caring for someone new to teaching.

    Cons

    The large university size implies larger size classrooms. My lab section consistently had 35-50 students for one to two TAs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more than two TAs per section.

    I have been working at University of Maryland part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The hourly wage may not be as good as one may like. The people at the Business school are great and easy to talk to. The community is great and it's easy to talk to people when help is needed.

    Cons

    The pay could be a little higher. There is not really too many cons except for pay, it's really a nice place to work and the people understand how to be good team players.

    I worked at University of Maryland

    Pros

    A ton of holidays, very little manual labor, students are great!

    Cons

    Faculty treat staff very badly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please learn some people skills. Corruption within the university is rampant and the ECON department recognizes it but does nothing to correct it.

    Doesn't Recommend
