I have been working at University of North Carolina full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Nice offices, two free classes a year if you work full time, some discounts to major retailers such as Verizon and Sprint, scenic location to work.

Cons

Pay to park or shuttle in, politics, discrepancies in work culture across the university, school of medicine and hospitals, wide pay gaps, no raises in 4 years, state-governed, you move up by who you know not by merit.

Advice to Management

Get rid of everyone at the top and start with new staff.

    I worked at University of North Carolina full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent Human Resources Department that takes care of staff (pooled extra employee PTO hours to assist staff who may not have accrued so many hours with maternity leave, family medical leave, etc)
    Friendly environment with encouraged growth and training.
    Beautiful campus with excellent food options nearby for lunch.

    Cons

    Difficult parking situation due to hospital facilities and university campus.
    Non-smoking campus forced all smokers into small areas that became cluttered with litter.
    During basketball season, getting around campus can be difficult (but worth it if you are a fan!)


  2. "one step above a teacher's college with a pretention of becoming a tier 2 research institution"

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

    Pros

    Beautiful Campus.
    Litteraly at the beach
    Lots of new buildings

    Cons

    -In 6 years I have had, 2 deans, 4 Chairs and we have lost 10 Full time faculty including 2 full professors, 6 Juior Faculty and several full time Instructors.
    -They strive for mediocrity.
    -No Raise for 5b years, and then only 1.5 %
    -Inconsistency in tenure process, they move the carrot far too much and base it on popularity.
    -Lots of Machiavellian political manipulation
    .

    Advice to Management

    Management must make a decision to minimize the impact of student outrage when they do not achieve the grades they feel they should have earned or are confronted with "tough love." Stop the inmates form running the asylum.
