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

Pros

Opportunities for research and collaboration abound. If you know what you want to do, and are interested in finding interdisciplinary collaborators, there are essentially unlimited possibilities for cutting-edge research. Chapel Hill is a beautiful place to live. Can't beat the weather, access to nearby cities (and the airport is a 25 minute drive!), and general cultural diversity.

Cons

Salaries are competitive, but living in the area is expensive - housing in particular. Expect to pay "big city" prices if you want to live close to campus. State budget cuts have left some basic services and building upkeep by the wayside. It's hit and miss - some areas of campus are state-of-the-art, others are attended to only once they start (literally) falling apart.

Advice to Management

Administrative staffing seems to have become more bare-bones since I arrived here.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at University of North Carolina as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Allows for growth through experimenting with new software and hardware. Lots of learning potential. Manager is very understanding.Don't get pushed to your limits, and has flexible work hours. Gained lots of important exposure into the field of IT Security.

    Cons

    Sometimes I wish I could ask for more work to do just to gain further exposure however I realize this would involve access that is beyond my pay-grade.

    Advice to Management

    Be willing to interface with the employees and open to suggestions for more growth opportunities.

    As a contractor, there aren't many future opportunities available.

    Advice to Management

    Have someone there to meet the after go-live needs of your staff...someone they are comfortable with and someone who is knowledgable.
