    Current Employee - General Librarian in Chapel Hill, NC

    I have been working at University of North Carolina full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great environment, beautiful campus, great colleagues, low stress. Mission-driven and most people are devoted to their work. Open, thoughtful environment.

    Cons

    State employee salary and (lack of) benefits. Not much opportunity for growth. Can be stodgy, bureaucratic at times. Feels hard to make a difference. Budget woes for 5+ years, can be hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work hard to repair recently tarnished reputation. Make bold decisions!

    "The Carolina Way"

    I worked at University of North Carolina full-time

    Pros

    Prestigous 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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your employees and their time. Not everyone sees their job as their life.
