I worked at North Carolina Biotechnology Center full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

NCBiotech is a great place to work. As a former employee, I was able to work on a wide variety of projects. The mission of the organization is to bring jobs in the life sciences to North Carolina. All of the staff are motivated to achieve this goal.

Cons

Dependent on funding from the NC General Assembly. Needs to be less reliant on state funding in this political environment.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Create a development plan that is less dependent on the capricious nature of the state legislature for funding. The biotech community could serve as one source of funds for the organization.

    I have been working at North Carolina Biotechnology Center full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great people with a mission to bring biotech jobs to North Carolina. As a long-time employee who was laid off, I hope my next opportunity is as fulfilling.

    Cons

    Funding is set by the NC General Assembly. They cut annual funding even though NCBiotech was fulfilling its mission. This lack of vision by our lawmakers have will allow other states to gain an edge on the strong foundation built by NCBiotech. One only needs to look at the growth in the life sciences made by Virginia, Maryland and others to see this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a new source of funding via development. Offer more services on a fee-based schedule. Consider out-sourcing administrative overhead to qualified contractors.
