Innovative leadership is right around the corner, as soon as some old-timers retire.

I worked at North Carolina State University full-time (less than a year)

Pros

The University has great academic programs and research. The School of Textiles is unbelievable. Centennial Campus will become a hotspot for technology and biotech development in next ten years. Most employees are super friendly.

Cons

Militaristic management structure which is unwilling to accept ideas from "outsiders." Pay is surprisingly low compared to other areas of the country and the benefits are laughingly bad.

    I worked at North Carolina State University full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    There are students and scholars that come make contributions in spite of the systemic waste.

    Cons

    Bloated bureaucracy, wasteful spending, too many cowardly, overpaid provosts. There are a few programs that border on being pure diploma mills. There are more than a few people who solely exist to protect their status and position. My immediate supervisor insisted that reports be falsified to boost our statistics. There is always a push to try to spend your budget before the end of the fiscal year so that monies are not returned to the State coffers. This stubborn ignorance that causes people to refuse to return unused monies is draining our government. Liberal agenda is too often forced down your throat. Is happens in every department. Politics at its worst.
