I worked at UNC Chapel Hill full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Flexible hours with a structured work environment. Working there is similar to employment as a state employee as they have all of the apparatus there to that "real" jobs have

Cons

Commuting wasn't fun. There is nowhere to park so your options are to drive to a park and ride, walk/bike or take the bus. Truth told the park and rides are pretty efficient as is the bus system so you can't ask much more there. That said it is much easier to drive to work when possible.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

When possible try to adapt to varying situations. A state run University can seem monolithic but you should retain some flexibility to fully support your work force.
