    Pros

    Very flexible work schedule. I was a student and was able to get valuable research experience working on cutting edge projects.

    Cons

    Research work can come in waves and it can be difficult to schedule work around class and test schedules. It always depends on whose lab you work in so be sure to ask questions before you start working.

    The university has good research facilities and work environment tends to be good

    school's reputation speaks for itself

    Pros

    If you're considering a postdoc at UNC it's likely because there's a great department or research group you want to work with. UNC has some of the best talent around and it's great to be part of it. You'll get great benefits (awesome health insurance) and pretty good pay. Beautiful campus with lots going on.

    Cons

    Things can get pretty bureaucratic, like any large university system. Don't expect forms to get processed quickly.

    Pros

    Benefits and compensation are competitive. I work offsite so my experience is a little different and I don’t interact much with the campus/administration side. My department has clear objectives and my research team is a great group of people to work with. Transparency in work expectations is also a plus.

    Cons

    Parking is atrocious if you work on campus.

    Pros

    UNC is among the top ranked universities for research and is an ideal environment to learn to perform good science. Experts from various fields can be found on campus and are usually approachable.

    Cons

    Once you have a position, it is a long and tedious process to climb up the ladder. Salaries are low.
