Pros

good place to study and work, nice weather at Raleigh, all kinds of majors except medical school. as long as you have a nice advisor, your RA life here will be great

Cons

there are too many students in some classes and major, would be better if keep the quality instead of the quantity.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

reduce the total number of graduate students in some major

    I worked at North Carolina State University full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The benefits are good and the university is large and interesting. I like the area and enjoy having the restaurants and cafeteria options for lunch.

    Cons

    There is too much bureaucracy and red tape. Departments are isolationist and the pay is only so-so. Parking is terrible. It is not a very attractive university and the traffic is frustrating. Many of the buildings are old and need updated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to lower grade staff, raise the pay, allow more communication, update the buildings, and promote advancement and growth.

    Former Employee - Scientist (Non-faculty) in Raleigh, NC

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

    Pros

    Great flexibility and autonomy. If you're a faculty member, it's pretty good. If you're a professional, non-faculty employee, it can also be good. Lots of vacation time. I don't know about regular staff.

    Cons

    Salary is below market. Recognition of doing a good job is non existent. Leadership from department to department is highly variable. Some department/unit heads have no management training or experience. This creates undesirable results

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize star performers better, find more incentives for employees. Require management training before promoting to dept./unit head.
