I spent mostly my whole day typing up and entering work orders on the computer. I didn't really interact with the management, but when I did it was always a pleasant experience. Co-workers were friendly and helpful. I enjoyed the fact I got to be on the computer all day.

Generic college
Student (Former Employee), College Park, MDAugust 13, 2015
Pros: In state tuition was manageable.
Cons: Some professors were not good teachers.
Good college with nothing special. Some classes were interesting but most are very typical. I did not have the optimal experience as I commuted everyday and did not live on or near campus. I did learn to get up early everyday and go to bed early, which is useful for future jobs.

Good benefits and work life balance, little room for advancement
Assistant Director (Current Employee), College Park, MDJune 25, 2015
Pros: Campus, benefits, work life balance
Cons: Management, little advancement, low pay
People typically work here for a very long time because you really cannot beat the work life balance. This is a place where people can bring their dogs, and children. However, this really depend on departments, some are more strict than others. You get great benefits, and if you have children they can go here for free as a full time employee.

However, you will not find much room for advancement. People don't leave often, so it is hard to move up.

Not familiar with University College recently
Professor (Former Employee), Princess Anne, MarylandJune 18, 2015
The University College of the University of Maryland has broad offerings and times and locations available for working persons who desire to upgrade their skills or obtain a degree. It is also a good place to work for faculty who enjoy working with experienced adults rather than with typical college aged youth.
