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

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

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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at University of North Carolina

    Pros

    state institution....honestly I'd work for a non-profit instead.

    Cons

    Most departments do not care about employees, and in the academic arena there is a culture of hiding behind academic language to endorse unethical behavior. They treat dissenters or students who require actual assistance as a problem, and hide behind the honor code to target vulnerable employees/students.

    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 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.
