    I worked at The University of North Carolina System part-time

    Pros

    The hours are flexible to the student's schedule and there is always great camaraderie in the work environment. There are lots of leadership opportunities and staff bonding activities.

    Cons

    This is a student job, so if you are attempting to work as many hours as a off campus job, you may not be able to earn as much.

    Pros

    Nice team and very friendly work environment. Everyone you encounter was nice and helpful.

    The commute was awful. Driving into Chapel Hill and either park and ride or using the deck was really difficult. Other than that, no real complaints

    Great co-workers (although depends on the department, but generally great). Good benefits and work environment.

    Pros

    Positive working environment, promotes learning and growth of employees. Offers CE and education credits through the University system.

    Cons

    Salaries are not often competitive with the private sector due to state legislature. Raise process takes too long. Benefits for the such as health care have become worse and more expensive.

    Advice to Management

    Collaborate with the deans of the professional schools and school chancellor to see if other benefits can be added since the state reduced so many.

    The work environment is intellectually stimulating. The facilities are excellent, especially Caudill Labs. The surrounding area (Research Triangle) is a great place to live.

    Work long hours that are more for the purpose of getting a degree than making money. This can be a con depending on your goals.
