Current Employee - Research Specialist in Chapel Hill, NC

I have been working at University of North Carolina full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Employment security, good benefits including a decent health insurance.I find the atmosphere to be friendly and collaborative and have no complaints about the the PIs that I have worked for.

Cons

UNC is a public school and the staff are state employees. As state's budget was being cut during the crisis, so were our benefits and in some instances salaries. We have not had a meaningful legislative increase in salary for at least 4 years.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I think upper management needs to do a better job making sure salaries stay competitive even if legislature is not increasing them.

    I have been working at University of North Carolina full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Engaged and engaging students, good peer support

    Cons

    state employee benefits are being rescinded by state legislature year after year combined with little to no cost of living increase. i take home less pay than i did five years ago in the same position despite cutting back on optional benefits. little to no room for advancement within departments - senior employees don't move up or on.
