Pretty Decent Place to Work
Teaching Laboratory Technician (Current Employee) –  College Park, MDOctober 19, 2017
The work is decent and you always know what they expect of/from you. The university tries very hard to make this a great place to work. We fill out anonymous surveys every year about how it is to work here and what would make it better and I like that they actually listen. Best thing about working here is the amount of vacation/holidays/sick leave you get. ALSO, as an employee you, your spouse, or your children can go to the university for FREE (if they are accepted) or they can go to any other university in the State of Maryland college system for 50% discount.
Pros
Vacation, holidays, free college
Cons
Traffic

Working for UMUC online has been a great experience. Working with military and education staff is very rewarding. Receiving tuition remission to complete a second bachelors degree is an added bonus.

Turnover sucks!
Paralegal (Current Employee) –  Adelphi, MDOctober 12, 2017
There is too much turnover here so employees do not feel stable. Every week there is an announcement that someone is leaving the institution at no fault of their own.

Additionally, though is plenty of training for management to improve, it is still poorly run. The Management play the favorite game which is at a cost too great employees.

STAFF ASSISTANT (Former Employee) –  Baltimore, MDOctober 9, 2017
The job gives you an understanding of corporate America. Somethings were a bit unfair, but for the most part, the supervisors were ok. They made you feel comfortable even if you were getting ready to be fired.

Great benifits, Poor work environment
Parking Maintenance / Enforcement (Current Employee) –  Rockville, MDSeptember 27, 2017
This job has great benefits, but the pay is below minimum standards. the pay inequality is to be ashamed of. The directors make outrageous money for doing next to nothing and the employees that do all the work are paid like peasants. The stress of the work atmosphere is not healthy and it is very "clicky" it should only be considered as a last result.My Manager surprisingly is a very nice person.
Pros
Benifits
Cons
Pay, Stress

Poor Communication between management and faculty/staff
faculty (Former Employee) –  Washington City, DCSeptember 20, 2017
University of Maryland University College might be good for students, but it is not necessarily the same for employees. The two main reasons are, first, management either does not or will not communicate effectively with lower faculty and seems easily annoyed at the prospect of having to regularly help or communicate. Second, though a position may be listed as part-time, and the pay is nominal, no faculty position is part-time; they all require full time hours. Paying lower grade faculty almost nothing to dedicate full-time hours saves the university money in the long run. Morale might be great for full professors, but those who are not are seen as an annoyance while expected to keep up an incredible pace of constant grading, feedback, and interacting with students online, otherwise, the threat that faculty will not be offered classes in the future is given.
Pros
working from home
Cons
negative, condescending management, management that does not like to communicate, management that expects everything while offering virtually no guidance
