Work culture at UMES is nice. As a web master I am responsible for web content management on couple of web sites. University uses a content management to ease up the process for non-technical staff. Overall I liked working here and all my colleagues are friendly and warm.
I enjoyed my research activities at University of Maryland Eastern Shore! The chemistry of converting waste cooking oil into biodiesel is breath taking. My supervisor did a wonderful job by introducing the various steps and stages that are initiated in biodiesel production processes. My first day at the research lab, I was introduced to a batch reactor known as Bio Pro 190. This batch reactor usually takes up to 12 hours to produce the required end-products. However, there are several lab tests that have to be carried out on the waste cooking oil so as to ascertain that amount of reagents to be added to the batch reactor. One of the end-products produced is glycerine. This end-produce have great number of applications in today's economic. My job description also required that I conduct extensive research in various areas where glycerine is used. You will be amazed that some cosmetic companies use glycerine as the primary solvent through which other chain of cosmetic products are developed. I worked with a colleague on these projects and we gave a wonderful delivery that surpassed the job expectations.
Enjoyed free tours to two biodiesel plants and had endless access to the research labs where I work.
Some waste cooking oil were not properly stored by the cafeteria management.
Productive and effective place to practice management skills.

The atmosphere is pretty laid back with opportunity to gain overtime within this contractual position. Overtime is given out last minute and most positions are over night so always keep your body rested. If you are a quiet person and keep to yourself this position can be idle. If you like to interact with people and help and assist this position can be idle for that also. Overall job is ok no opportunity of growth no matter how many contracts you sign and the years you end up working here. Unless you apply to an open full time position on your own time.
This position is more geared towards students who need money but for those who need stability from both management and job-wise, It may prove to be difficult. From coming in to a place that is constantly out of order to dealing with nonfluctuating issues with management, you would think it maybe a mad house. The co-workers are tolerable but when pressed for time, the workload becomes unorthodox and unbalanced.
free lunches(at the time), friendly co-workers, some easy-going staff
no medical insurance, bad management, lack of job stability
