    Approves of CEO

    I worked at UMUC full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Reliable pay check. A lot of PTO and you get tuition remission. It's a great stepping stone to bigger things

    Cons

    No compensation for being a good or even above average employee. The yearly review that they make you put effort into yields 1-3 perfect increase and it will be the exact same as the slacker sitting next to you

    Advice to Management

    Ride the wave while you can
