Pros

good place to study and work, nice weather at Raleigh, all kinds of majors except medical school. as long as you have a nice advisor, your RA life here will be great

Cons

there are too many students in some classes and major, would be better if keep the quality instead of the quantity.

Advice to Management

reduce the total number of graduate students in some major

    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.
