    I have been working at University of Maryland full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    There's usually a place to grab coffee or a bite if you're hungry.

    Cons

    The pay is very low, especially at the satellite locations. To give an example, they want an employee with at least five years' relevant experience AND a master's degree, all for a whopping 32k per year with restricted benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't expect to attract so-called "A-players" with a "C-player" salary package.

    I worked at University of Maryland part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Student life, interpersonal interactions, and just a general easy going atmosphere within the campus. The work can be interesting at times but this was only occasionally. The pay is good for stupid simple jobs.

    Cons

    Not challenging work so you can get bored easily, not easy to grow within the company, and the pay isn't fantastic and almost impossible to get a raise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow better access for your research associates to get more acquainted with the department they're working for. You generally just feel like a lemming tossed in to do a specific set of instructions and then just rinse and repeat.

    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.

    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.
