Clean and new offices, but paying to park chips away at abysmal state-governed salary.

Pros

Nice offices, two free classes a year if you work full time, some discounts to major retailers such as Verizon and Sprint, scenic location to work.

Cons

Pay to park or shuttle in, politics, discrepancies in work culture across the university, school of medicine and hospitals, wide pay gaps, no raises in 4 years, state-governed, you move up by who you know not by merit.

Advice to Management

Get rid of everyone at the top and start with new staff.

    Pros

    Beautiful Campus.
    Litteraly at the beach
    Lots of new buildings

    Cons

    -In 6 years I have had, 2 deans, 4 Chairs and we have lost 10 Full time faculty including 2 full professors, 6 Juior Faculty and several full time Instructors.
    -They strive for mediocrity.
    -No Raise for 5b years, and then only 1.5 %
    -Inconsistency in tenure process, they move the carrot far too much and base it on popularity.
    -Lots of Machiavellian political manipulation
    .

    Advice to Management

    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.

  2. 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 Management

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