I worked at University of North Carolina full-time (more than a 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!)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management must make a decision to minimize the impact of student outrage when they do not achieve the grades they feel they should have earned or are confronted with "tough love." Stop the inmates form running the asylum.

    UNCG can be a great beginning, and for many a good long-term employment experience.

    Pros

    With a campus as large as UNCG, opportunities for advancement, or at the very least, lateral transfer exist, for those who want to continually build their skill set. There are some great people at various levels who will mentor you and/or challenge you. Your success can often be self-determined.

    Cons

    As a state supported institution, UNCG regrettably falls victim to limited possibilities for performance based salary increases. Benefits continually degrade year after year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Constructively, get outside of limited silos of experience. Continually seek improvement.
