I worked at University of North Carolina part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Flexibility with class schedule, opportunities to try new things and gain skills

Cons

Unless you ask for some clear responsibilities and project work, it's hard to market the skills you've gained in this job after you graduate.

Advice to Management

Give student assistants the opportunity to gain real skills. Let them see the results of their work so that it can be used after they graduate.

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

    Pros

    Great resources for students and collegial atmosphere. Excellent core facilities. Fantastic scientific mentors.

    Cons

    Constant construction in the hospital/biomedical campus area for the past several years makes it tough to get around. The situation has gotten better in the past year, though. Job prospects for biomedical trainees are waning, but that's no fault of UNC. They do a good job of communicating the realities to students.

    "Clean and new offices, but paying to park chips away at abysmal state-governed salary."

    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.
