    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at UNC Chapel Hill full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Working for the university and state means you have a ton of connections, work is fun and fulfilling, and also you never need to work more than 40 hours a week. After a year long probationary period, you are protected. The success of the job is very dependent on your supervisor.

    Cons

    Promotions and raises are heavily regulated by the state and not easy to come by.
