works at 

University of Maryland Global Campus

Hi everyone, I am currently a third year finance student at university of maryland global campus. I work full time and go to school full time. I have four years of customer service and i am an assistant manager at a small hotel. I applied to multiple internships but dint got any offer. I also have a 3.5 gpa right now and I’m just not sure as to why I don’t even get an interview… is it because my school is not very know or does it make a huge impact?

    Pros

    Staff at UMD receive generous benefits, and it’s a collaborative culture.

    Cons

    Definitely negotiate for a high starting salary because it’s very difficult to get raises once you’re on the job.

    Pros

    Meaningful research, diverse patient population, encouraged to learn, and opportunities to work with interdisciplinary "professionals"

    Cons

    Too much nepotism and politics, hardly any accountability for research funders, minimal investment in career development for staff, and not proactive enough regarding safety protocols

    Pros

    Good state government benefits. Very generous Annual and Sick leaves.

    Cons

    The management at least in my Department is socialism- style. They do care about your performance, but not so much! Instead, the main metrics to raise your equity pay is whether your current pay is close to the mean values. They even use metrics like 1 standard deviation, etc. What a joke! If you are a slacker and want to cheat into the system, UMD is a perfect place for you. They will make sure to increase your pay just because your pay is lower than others. If you are super talented and work really hard, and want to get compensation based on your performance, please stay away from UMD as much as you can. There is a reason their ranking is slipping!

    Not too bad. You get to teach students and grade their homework.

    Pros

    Gives you the ability to see things from the professor's point of view. You get to grade papers without having to solve the questions yourself. FYI these questions could take an entire day to solve and then you wouldn't even be sure if you did them right.

    Cons

    Grading papers suck very much. I had to grade the homework for an upper-level engineering class (ENAE423) of 108 students. Each question had multiple parts and if someone messes one up, it follows into subsequent questions. Had to figure out how to assign points properly because it was entirely up to me.
