    I worked at UNC Chapel Hill full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Applies to temp employees...Pay was great. Access to free seminars, courses, etc. Good support in many departments. Travel per diem was excellent. Diverse environment. Many departments are open minded to multicultural differences.

    Cons

    Applies to temp employees only. Hired as temp with promise of perm position that was given to current permanent employee. This happened to a number of employees I knew. Required to take 30 day leave every year. Health benefits are not affordable even for bare minimum. No paid time off.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at UNC Chapel Hill full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The patients and certain providers will always keep a smile on anyone’s face.

    Cons

    The workload, and some of the staff are not the best people. Just be careful.

    Advice to Management

    I would suggest management should do more to keep the company afloat. The turnover rate is extremely high within the clinic, plus the pay does not add up to the amount of work that CMA’s and nurses have to deal with on a daily basis.
