"The Carolina Way"

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at University of North Carolina full-time

ProsPrestigous University so the name carries a lot of weight even outside of the South. I moved and was surprised how many people (not all) recognize the Carolina name for more than basketball.

ConsWas tired of hearing about the "Carolina Way." Change is not always bad. Hired many UNC grads which continued this status quo thinking.

Advice to Senior ManagementValue your employees and their time. Not everyone sees their job as their life.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

In 5 1/2… Advice to Senior Management: More professional development for staff. The University does a much better job in… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More

Great people, but designed not to help employees advance

Office Assistant (Former Employee)
Chapel Hill, NC

I worked at University of North Carolina full-time for more than 5 years


Pros: The salary and benefits are okay, and the people I worked with were fantastic. Because it's such a big University,… Cons: I worked at the university for over six years, and never once got a cost of living increase. The recession hit the University hard,… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
