Great place for starters

Process Engineer (Current Employee)
Raleigh, NC

I have been working at North Carolina State University part-time for more than a year

ProsThis place is an amazing combination of industry and academia. A class 1000 clean room shared by multiple companies and academic institutions in Research Triangle Park. One of the best advantages of working at NC Nanofabrication is that you'll have the chance to get trained one-on-one by staff members who have seen variety of work scenes previously.

ConsYou will miss the huge group of co-workers and events you'll normally see in a bigger setting and company. Other than that there will be no disadvantage.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Interesting and Informative

Intern (Current Employee)

I have been working at North Carolina State University part-time for less than a year

ConsWork can be time-consuming and my computer runs pretty slow, which is true for many of the office equipment.

Advice to Senior ManagementI am pretty happy with my job.

Teaching assistantship

Teaching Assistant (Current Employee)
Raleigh, NC

I have been working at North Carolina State University part-time for more than a year

ProsGraduate student support program, working with like minded people, competitive salary/stipend, location is great (teach classes on campus while you're attending classes)

ConsOnly part time employment is offered so only part time salaries/ stipends are awarded. Unfortunately the cost of living is higher than the stipend so you'll be eating Ramen noodles while you're in school, but it's better than nothing!
