Great benefits with room for improvement
Project Coordinator (Former Employee) – Upper Marlboro, MD – April 19, 2019
UMUC is a great place to work for someone trying to advance their career via higher education opportunities. Tuition remission is a huge benefit and they offer excellent dental and healthcare plans. The retirement plan is generous compared to many local employers as well. Great colleagues and friendly atmosphere overall.
Management can be viewed in as two-fold. Upper management is very business and mission driven, and relatively transparent. Front-line managers are okay. Could use more leadership training but compared to other organizations, they are par for course.
One drawback is not as much upward mobility as there could be and what is available depends a lot of who you know, not what you know. Again, par for course with most organizations.
While telework is an option, it is not instituted as well as it could be.
Great colleagues, tuition remission, excellent benefits
Lack of advancement opportunities, mediocre frontline (middle) management, need more telework opportunities
