    I have been working at UNC Wilmington full-time

    The people are wonderful, I enjoy my job, I just wish there were more opportunities for advancement. Fortunately, you have wonderfully experienced people who work there, but then they just don't want to leave.

    Working within the UNC system can be frustrating given the economy, influence of legislature, and partisan leadership.

    Pros

    Great work life balance if you're in the right area/department.
    Good co-workers.
    Good benefits.
    There's no expectation to be great.

    Cons

    No opportunity for advancement unless you leave your job.
    Turnover is terrible.
    No incentive to do a great job.
    We're just here for the paycheck.

    Advice to Management

    Let people get raises if they're good at their job. The whole University is suffering from the high turnover. Stop blaming everything on money when we all know there is money here.
