    Student worker

    Great place to work.

    Research Specialist (Former Employee) Greenville, NC

    ProsStability. Career branding created some mobility.

    ConsSPA employees have stability, but are unable to get raises based on merit. Laziness gets rewarded as often as hard work, so can become demoralizing after a while. SPA employees forced into pension with no match.

    A university that provides good opportunities for employment

    Graduate Assistant (Current Employee) Greenville, NC

    ProsJob provides some flexibility in scheduling to accommodate student's schedules. Decent experience and average pay for the position and responsibilities.

    ConsThe university administrator system is bloated and clumsy. Too many politics. Not enough funding where it counts. The quality of people in management varies but that is typical for any job. The administration moves slowly so it can be difficult to plan ahead at the beginning of each semester.

    Restrictive

    Research Fellow (Former Employee) Greenville, NC

    ProsVery friendly and welcoming people work here. They don't behave like you're invisible.

    ConsGenerally not open to new ideas. They definitely want you to fit into the mold and nothing else. There was a huge emphasis on keeping my hours accurate rather than producing actual results--disappointing.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMy contract was for one year only. There is a huge turn-over in the patent office, and the refusal not to extend your contract gives you the feeling that you're disposable.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    University with identify problem

    Assistant Professor (Current Employee) Greenville, NC

    ProsWithin various department, the faculty are wonderful, committed, and creative.

    ConsAdministration is horrible - removed faculty governance and fail to respond to faculty, students, or research trends in deciding what to do. This is a regional institution and not primarily research focused so work load is high. Despite this, there is an administrative shift toward research as central focus.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReturn to joint or shared governance, respond to and collaborate with faculty.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Graduate Assistant - College of Business

    Graduate Assistant (Current Employee) Greenville, NC

    ProsGreat opportunity for tuition assistance and possibilities of developing good relationships with the professor who will be able to assist you if you have any specific questions/ resume critiques and industry inside information based on their personal experiences.

    ConsSometime unbalanced workload depending on the examination periods or searcher requirement from the professors. The job can be tedious.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEncourage students to apply for graduate assistantship.
