    A great place to get an education or retire, but not much else

    I have been working at University of North Carolina full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Wonderful training and development programs (if your supervisor and work schedule permit your attendance). There are lots of perks to working at a top-tier public University; access to great performances and speakers (free or low cost); wonderful libraries; tuition waivers for 2 classes per year; access to great exercise facilities. There tends to be a lot of flexibility on campus, which is great for work/life balance and the extended winter holiday break is a boon!

    Cons

    There is an obvious lack of management training, which can lead to very hit or miss experiences for employees. Communication from upper administration trickles down to employees at a pretty slow rate. If you're coming from the private sector, be prepared for lots of bureaucracy. Not many upwardly mobile career opportunities for younger employees. Salaries offered are often well below market rate (unless you work in a department with external funding). Benefits offerings are not at all competitive. The best and brightest employees often move on to better paying institutions as quickly as possible. State budget cuts often result in zero percent salary increases (nope, not even cost of living).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improved communication and competitive salaries would greatly help to improve employee morale.

    I worked at University of North Carolina part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Exciting to be surrounded by so many motivated and talented people. Also while it may depend on the department in my experience the group was very flexible and made an effort to make working together enjoyable.

    Cons

    The State Health Benefits do not rank well compared to other states we are limited by the small market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advocate for better health insurance options for your employees.
