The University of Maryland has been recognized as one of the top 10 highest-rated D.C.-area employers on Glassdoor.com. COLLEGE PARK, Md. – The University of Maryland has been recognized as one of the top 10 highest-rated D.C.-area employers by Glassdoor.com.

Glassdoor, a website where current and former employees can anonymously rate their workplace, looked at D.C.-area companies that have received at least 25 reviews from local employees over the past two years. The reviews are based on employees' rankings in five categories: career opportunities, compensation and benefits, work/life balance, senior management, and culture and values.

An overall rating of 3.9 put UMD at No.9 on the top 10 list—one of only three non-Federal employers recognized.

Employee reviews on Glassdoor tout the university as "a quality school with national recognition, quality staff and proximity to many resources close to the nation's capital," and recognize UMD for having "outstanding staff and administration that is seeking creative solutions and thinking." Several reviews applauded the university's diverse student population that "makes teaching more interesting and challenging."
