    I have been working at University of North Carolina At Pembroke as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Responsibilities are light, not a lot of hard work, lenient about being late to work, make a lot of friends in co-workers.

    Cons

    Low pay, not many permanent employment options, not many chances to advance unless you know someone well or gain favor with a higher up, people in higher positions aren't necessarily knowledge about their job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not push responsibilities onto employees when you yourself don't know what you're doing.

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

    Pros

    UNCP is a great place for your first job if you are NOT a local from the county. People from the county tend to start their career at the University... and retire from the same position or even get a random promotion.

    It is a great place for new professionals to hone your skills of working with multicultural and minority students in a rural, non-residential campus.

    Cons

    Students seem more "entitled" because a lot of them come from low-income families or families where they have struggled just to survive. If you come from a privileged background, they will make you know that you are "not like them" and "you don't know anything about them".

    Administration has changed drastically over the past 5 years. Administration used to get promoted because of relationships, not knowledge, experience or talent, but because of who you know.

    Very political environment!! VERY POLITICAL! Everyone knows everyone... so be careful who you talk to about anything!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on developing your employees. Not just letting them do their job, but doing their job in the way they want. Also offer experiences outside of the job description to help people grow. Not everyone wants to stay at UNCP... so recognize that and help them get to where they want to go!

    The people are nice and you will find certain groups of people are amazing.

    Cons

    The budget woes, combined with the stale leadership tend to hold this place back

    Dont be afraid to shake it up and transparency is a good thing
