    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at University of Maryland Global Campus full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Leave is liberal comparatively. Credits to take classes and earn a degree. You'll meet some really cool and interesting people.

    Cons

    You'll always be recorded and end up sounding like a recording. You'll find it very hard to move up or even around. It'll seem like upper management is just going by trial and error. Pay is low.

    Pros

    Great benefits, work life balance (depending on your department) and flexibility, friendly staff
