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

    Pros

    Time off for Christmas break.

    Cons

    Not much time off, no personal days, non-exempt employees will soon have to clock in/out. Very difficult to move around and advance within the University. Not many opportunities to move up the ladder. No raises or bonuses.. but that's the state. Very political, low morale, not much in the way of employee incentives. More focuses on research, students and faculty.

    Advice to Management

    Come with ways/incentives to make the University a great place to work for SHRA employees.
