    I have been working at University of North Carolina as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Rewarding experiences consist of regular encounters with bright students who provide quick and honest feedback. Fair advising from the teaching faculty; however, consensus to most questions were addressed by a team of TAs.

    Cons

    An uneven distribution of workload can result in long busy streaks, particularly at the end of the semester. The compensation for teaching positions does not match this workload.

    Advice to Management

    Please consider raising teaching assistantship compensation levels to match estimates of workload throughout the semester.

    I have been working at University of North Carolina full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great environment, beautiful campus, great colleagues, low stress. Mission-driven and most people are devoted to their work. Open, thoughtful environment.

    Cons

    State employee salary and (lack of) benefits. Not much opportunity for growth. Can be stodgy, bureaucratic at times. Feels hard to make a difference. Budget woes for 5+ years, can be hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

    Advice to Management

    Work hard to repair recently tarnished reputation. Make bold decisions!
