I have been working at University of Maryland full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

ranked very high in the nation, and has very talented professors and students around to work with. Being a big campus, its a great diverse experience. Proximity to the capital is also a plus, both professionally and socially.

Cons

The neighborhood around can be sketchy, and the graduate salaries are not very good. The working conditions, i.e. the work desk is kind of just something put together to make it work. Leaves a bad taste, but its not a deal breaker.

Advice to Management

All the cons can't really be changed by the management much, its outside their territory.
