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

    Pros

    Lots of paid holidays, vacation, and sick time. Many positions offer flexible schedules, and some allow partial telecommuting. Low pressure in a lot of positions.

    Cons

    If you are conservative, your opinion is ridiculed. Many of the other employees are openly hostile to anyone that doesn't agree with their liberal views.

    I have been working at University of North Carolina

    Pros

    Great facilities are one of the major pluses. The people are also friendly and a joy to work with. High speed internet and food withing walking distance. A single room at the double rate. The opportunity to help students acclimate to the college environment and to help them through tough times. The RA position is worthwhile for any full-time student.

    Cons

    There is not much room for change. Also, the process for hiring at all levels has too many holes and leads to some people getting positions that they only meet the minimum requirements for, or only meet them on paper. They are also more likely to hire new people then to promote from within.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote from within, they sometimes deserve it and at least you KNOW what they can do.
