    I have been working at University of North Carolina full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I am an instructor for an introductory course for statistics. It helps me get prepared for further career life and practice my english speaking.

    Cons

    Due to the government funding, the salary for an instructor is only a little bit higher than TA's. However, I need to spend 10 more hours

    Advice to Management

    Please balance the salary with the real working hours.

    I worked at University of North Carolina full-time

    Pros

    The work is rewarding. Opportunities to learn a great deal about intellectual and developmental disabilities.
    Limited supervision.

    Cons

    Pay is not competitive. You really need to love doing this job. I loved this job, but there is not much opportunity for pay increase. The work can be tough emotionally and can have lots of paperwork. Limited supervision - this is a pro or con depending on who you are.

    Advice to Management

    Opportunity for pay increases or bonuses.

    I have been working at University of North Carolina full-time

    Pros

    Benifits: You get 143 hours of vacation, 104 hours of sick time, you have a week off in December YOU HAVE to take (this doesn't come out of your vacation or sick time), you have several paid holidays, medical is pretty good and retirement is great! Love my co-workers and the learning curve is really high. Currently we are off campus so "at the moment" parking is onsite and free.

    Cons

    By Sept 30, we have to park off site for a fee. Shuttle ride will be between 15-20 (depends on shuttle time and morning and afternoon traffic) mins for a parking site that is roughly 4 mins away. As a University employee, raises and bonuses come very little to non a year.

    Advice to Management

    Management is fair and my only supervisor whom I report to, pushes for career growth.
