Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Work-life balance as a graduate student is very flexible and is largely dictate by the advisor's personality and work schedule. In my case, my advisor was very hands off and did not require strict hours so long as I produce results in a timely manner.

Cons

Work can be tedious and time consuming. And often overtime (50+ hours/week) is required to obtain results. Given the level of compensation, this seems a bit extreme.

    I have been working at North Carolina State University full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Professional treatment of staff in support of faculty. Recognition of accomplishments.
    Opportunities for advancement in several specialties of administration. Location is excellent in a dynamic culturally diverse community that is growing and active. Excellent public school system so far.

    Cons

    Compensation tied to state government, which provides little stability or independence regardless of contribution to the overall mission. State government does not appreciate the value of investing in education at any level. Reductions in support are masked by political claims and grandstanding while the youth suffer a more demanding job market.

    Advice to Management

    Keep fighting for independence in management of the the state's finest university.
