Current Employee - Faculty in Chapel Hill, NC

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

Pros

Very smart, good people. Very collaborative atmosphere.

Cons

Everything takes 50% more steps than it should. The rules and regulations make everything harder, take longer, and in the end Cost more than it should.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Where are we bound to the state, and where do we have autonomy to cut the red tape? If we want to cut costs vis-a-vis the Bain report, can we evaluate the costs associated with hiring a new employee (time, multiple approvals, EEO requirements, etc.) and opportunities lost in doing so, as well as Purchasing Department red tape? Well-intended, but extraordinarily inefficient.
