I worked at North Carolina State University full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

The benefits are good and the university is large and interesting. I like the area and enjoy having the restaurants and cafeteria options for lunch.

Cons

There is too much bureaucracy and red tape. Departments are isolationist and the pay is only so-so. Parking is terrible. It is not a very attractive university and the traffic is frustrating. Many of the buildings are old and need updated.

Advice to Management

Pay more attention to lower grade staff, raise the pay, allow more communication, update the buildings, and promote advancement and growth.

    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.


  2. "Good first internship experience for someone wanting to go into research."

    I worked at North Carolina State University as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Knowledgeable, helpful faculty. Interesting research topics with a strong focus on getting to know other interns and what their research projects are about.

    Cons

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