Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Great University, Currently a great department, Great town and metropolitan area. Most professors and groups support healthy work-life balance.

Cons

High student fees make compensation less than it seems. Take $2000 off your yearly stipend to find out what you will really be making. Because of the recent scandals at UNC, things tend to get swept under the rug.

Advice to Management

Compensation needs to be more, but they are slowly increasing the graduate stipend in my department.

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

    Pros

    Benefits, tuition award. Campus is nice to looks at, there is good public transportation in Chapel Hill. My immediate coworkers and supervisor are nice people.

    Cons

    institutional culture is disconnected from reality. Undergraduates are prideful tools. Institutional culture is poisoned by focus on athletics to the exclusion of improving the university. That and having a blank check.

    Advice to Management

    Less emphasis on NCAA athletics, more emphasis on literally anything else.


  2. Good place to work

    Pros

    Great students, wonderful physical location and campus

    Cons

    State dictates raises so there is no performance pay no matter how hard you work. State employees received 1.2% increase over last 6 years.
