    A constructive experience which has met my expectations for a graduate student position.

    Pros

    Good location, good proximity to a high density of technical jobs (important as graduation approaches), well rounded experience between teaching and research, good lab facilities and good faculty.

    Cons

    Poor communication between administration and departments, especially at the graduate student level (last to know about anything new), budget cuts have hurt research budgets in recent years.

    Pros

    The benefits are pretty good. You also get to take classes for free(up to 3) per year at any North Carolina public university.

    Cons

    They just raised the deductible son the medical insurance. Also, the state did not get a salary increase this year due to budget cuts.

    A great place to get an education or retire, but not much else

    Pros

    Wonderful training and development programs (if your supervisor and work schedule permit your attendance). There are lots of perks to working at a top-tier public University; access to great performances and speakers (free or low cost); wonderful libraries; tuition waivers for 2 classes per year; access to great exercise facilities. There tends to be a lot of flexibility on campus, which is great for work/life balance and the extended winter holiday break is a boon!

    Cons

    There is an obvious lack of management training, which can lead to very hit or miss experiences for employees. Communication from upper administration trickles down to employees at a pretty slow rate. If you're coming from the private sector, be prepared for lots of bureaucracy. Not many upwardly mobile career opportunities for younger employees. Salaries offered are often well below market rate (unless you work in a department with external funding). Benefits offerings are not at all competitive. The best and brightest employees often move on to better paying institutions as quickly as possible. State budget cuts often result in zero percent salary increases (nope, not even cost of living).
