Former Employee - Research Associate in Chapel Hill, NC
Former Employee - Research Associate in Chapel Hill, NC

I worked at University of North Carolina full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Excellent Human Resources Department that takes care of staff (pooled extra employee PTO hours to assist staff who may not have accrued so many hours with maternity leave, family medical leave, etc)
Friendly environment with encouraged growth and training.
Beautiful campus with excellent food options nearby for lunch.

Cons

Difficult parking situation due to hospital facilities and university campus.
Non-smoking campus forced all smokers into small areas that became cluttered with litter.
During basketball season, getting around campus can be difficult (but worth it if you are a fan!)

    I have been working at University of North Carolina

    Pros

    People are friendly and helpful - it's truly a research community. Chapel Hill is also a great place to live and work -- very high quality of life.

    Cons

    Postdoctoral fellows are temporary employees - have health insurance but no other substantial benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More time spent managing/advising projects with postdocs and grad students = more/better publications = more grant money = happier labs.
