    I worked at University of Maryland full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    decent benefits and good working environment

    Cons

    payment was kind of low because it was based on limited departmental funds

  2. "Great as a PhD Student"

    I have been working at University of Maryland as an intern (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    How much you are respected as a student is very dependent on which school you're in. In the graduate school, you are treated well and your opinion is considered.

    Cons

    The location is close to some high crime areas which spills over onto campus. The hospital emergency entrance is in the middle of campus and usually has some very sketchy people in front of it.

    Advice to Management

    Airlift the entire campus and put it somewhere better. Short of that, there is already a decent number of police on campus, but they only seem to be out at corners for very select windows.

    Their wonderful to work for. It's alot to learn here. Always room for growth. It feels very rewarding to come to work everyday. It's a diverse group of people from all over the world. You have great managers and nurses that are team players always willing to help.

    Very few cons. Sometime the hours maybe long, but it doesn't even matter. You want to be here. At first I didn't like the long hours, but the people grew on me. I became to love them, they are my family.

    Advice to Management

    Give credit when its do. Make people more accountable for their responsiblities. Challenge employees to their potential. Encourage workers to go back to school and get a degree. Have more faith in your staff.
