  6. Research Assistant

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at University of North Carolina part-time

    Pros

    Being a Research Assistant at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill provided me with the opportunity to learn and become familiar with lab processes while working on a masters degree. Everyone was very helpful and supportive.

    Cons

    The pay was not great for as much work as you do, but it was better than having to get an outside job to help with grad school expenses. No other major complaints.

    Advice to Management

    I think the professors and upper levels students are doing a great job to support the new students and guide them through the experience of being a Research Assistant.

    Pros

    Great benefits with a healthy amount of vacation time. Many great programs that help a lot of residents of the state.

    Incredibly bureaucratic. Not always solution-oriented. At times riding on its reputation rather than pushing to meet that reputation.
