Enjoy working here — great benefits and a great place to learn new information and skills. Would recommend joint campus groups and finding ways to connect outside of individual office

UMD insights

Based on 11 survey responses
What people like
  • Inclusive work environment
  • Clear sense of purpose
  • Time and location flexibility

The work itself is varied and interesting.

Clients are surprisingly acute and there are limited local resources for step up treatment. The best part of the work is the variety of presenting issues. There is limited in-house consultation, presenting difficulties in addressing complex treatment protocols. Because of the under-market compensation scheme, there is a challenge in recruiting experienced therapists and an issue with wage compression for current employees. Additionally, there is an expectation of CEU acquisition with a very limited stipend for employees. The tuition remission benefit of employment only applies to undergraduate studies, not professional education.

Mediocre Job

Working at UMD was a simple job, not very fulfilling but not too bad either. It ranked about the same as working at Walmart as far as experience and routine.

working at umd wasn't easy for me but it pay me well enough for my hours

working at umd wasn't easy for me but it pay me well enough for my hours. My position at umd was not for everyone, because not everybody can handle that type of heat at the grill.

very friendly and encouraging

working as a Research Assistant is challenging, however, if you are passionate about learning, people there will never save any effort to help you shoot your Academic and professional level. On the personal level the researchers there are friendly and very helpful. As for the labs and the facilities there, almost every thing is up to date and the laboratories are well equipped with the latest devices needed for scientific Research. To sum Up, the UMD can be considered the place of your choice to pursue your career!

Pros

friendly colleagues and warm working atmosphere

University of Maryland is a great place to work and learn

University of Maryland is a great place to work and learn. I didn't have much fun in the area, it was a tad depressing. With Washington D.C 30 minutes there are other places to go though.

Easy going and fun workplace

Typical day at work was enjoyable. I learned a lot about leadership and how to communicate between students, coworkers, staff, and management. The major issue of the job was the high turnover rate of supervisors.

Pros

Free usage of facilities

Cons

Few in-services

UMD 24 shop

A typical day at work would be greeting the customer's and cleaning the areas. Restocking the drinks and food. Counting all the money I made for that day.

Very flexible hours provided for students

I loved my experience working here. It was a flexible schedule that allowed me to work, attend class, and then go back to work. Coworkers were very friendly and made the experience better. Management worked very hard to accommodate employees' schedules and other concerns.

Pros

Warm environment, flexible schedule

Cons

Returning to school earlier than everyone else; low pay

It's such a wonderful place

I just love this place. The professors are very supportive and my colleagues are very kind and helpful too. It's been a great experience this far and I am learning new things almost everyday. So much to learn and grow. You just can't ask for more.
