Former Employee - Resnet in Chapel Hill, NC

I worked at University of North Carolina part-time (more than a year)

Pros

ResNET does a great job organizing and standardizing knowledge in technical support. Also, they do a lot to make sure employees gain a lot of experience working with people, presenting in front of groups, and assisting others

Cons

Sometimes the workload can be demanding while having a full courseload. A lot of times it felt like achieving arbitrary goals just to check things off of a list.

    Current Employee - Lead Developer in Chapel Hill, NC

    I have been working at University of North Carolina full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Chapel Hill is a nice place to raise a family. Working with and mentoring the best and brightest students from North Carolina and beyond was rewarding and enjoyable.

    Cons

    Support for my position was non-existent. After my boss was fired for inappropriate relationship with a student, my role went completed unsupported and no one seemed to care what I did from there on out. Once they found someone to take over the program, I was quietly terminated. There was zero support from the Dean, faculty, Chancellor or Vice Chancellor. I was simply expendable. That's how it goes at UNC. If something goes wrong, they sweep it under the rug and impact people's lives adversely in the blink of an eye.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership and management skills need to be improved. Continuity planning needs to be addressed.

    Former Employee - Program Coordinator in Chapel Hill, NC

    I worked at University of North Carolina full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    At one time, benefits included free health insurance for individuals and lifetime health insurance coverage for vested retirees. There were also annual cost of living increases and a decent advancement process.

    Cons

    These benefits have mostly been eliminated in the past few years, along with large numbers of support staff layoffs.

    Top level administration has protected its own benefits and perquisites while decimating support staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Accept your responsibility for sharing some of the pain of funding cuts.
