I worked at North Carolina State University full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

The University has great academic programs and research. The School of Textiles is unbelievable. Centennial Campus will become a hotspot for technology and biotech development in next ten years. Most employees are super friendly.

Cons

Militaristic management structure which is unwilling to accept ideas from "outsiders." Pay is surprisingly low compared to other areas of the country and the benefits are laughingly bad.

    Most work is done individually or in small groups, larger groups are rare. Amount of work varies greatly depending on research topic/mentor.

    I worked at North Carolina State University full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great flexibility and autonomy. If you're a faculty member, it's pretty good. If you're a professional, non-faculty employee, it can also be good. Lots of vacation time. I don't know about regular staff.

    Cons

    Salary is below market. Recognition of doing a good job is non existent. Leadership from department to department is highly variable. Some department/unit heads have no management training or experience. This creates undesirable results

    Advice to Management

    Recognize star performers better, find more incentives for employees. Require management training before promoting to dept./unit head.
