I worked at University of North Carolina full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Great resources for students and collegial atmosphere. Excellent core facilities. Fantastic scientific mentors.

Cons

Constant construction in the hospital/biomedical campus area for the past several years makes it tough to get around. The situation has gotten better in the past year, though. Job prospects for biomedical trainees are waning, but that's no fault of UNC. They do a good job of communicating the realities to students.

    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.
