    I worked at The University of North Carolina System

    Pros

    It can be a good place to start your career if you have limited job experience. Decent benefits package and educational opportunities. Relatively good job security.

    Cons

    There are not a lot of opportunities for upward mobility within the sciences here. PhDs are valued much more highly than Bachelors degrees. Poor financial compensation versus private industry.

    Advice to Management

    I think the university leadership is doing about the best they can within their budgetary limitations. I do believe that the pay disparity between staff and tenured professors is ridiculous.
