    Current Employee - Postdoctoral Research Associate in Chapel Hill, NC

    I have been working at University of North Carolina full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great location, relatively good benefits, good public transportation system, access to state employees credit union, normal NIH postdoc salary, but lower cost of living than other places in the country

    Cons

    Some people have the typical state-employee mentality, just working enough to get retirement, sometimes one has to create work-arounds or be creative to get things accomplished within the system

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    reward people who make exceptional contributions, not those who have the typical state-employee mentality
