    "Administrative Nightmare Overshadows Great Science"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Research Associate in Chapel Hill, NC

    I have been working at The University of North Carolina System full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great benefits, including a generous amount of vacation time; Excellent scientific research with some of the best in their fields

    Cons

    Amount of bureaucratic red tape is astronomical and the status quo is impossible to move beyond; pay is not necessarily commensurate with education and experience due to laws around equity; work-life balance is not great due; at the mercy of the NC General Assembly for pay increases

    Advice to Management

    Stop making professional development so impossible to achieve.
