    Pros

    Academic scenario at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is very stimulating and professionally challenging. Different schools in campus are well connected with each other with potential for research collaborations. The course-work is rigorous but not over-exhausting to allow meaningful research during graduate school. Personally, the weather of North Carolina was also one of the major reason I chose UNC for my graduate work - it is usually pleasant without major temperature drops.

    Cons

    Funding for research work is going down, so graduate students may progressively get more involved in writing grant applications and securing funds for their research advisors.

    Advice to Management

    No advice per se, rather I would wish to congratulate the management for their progress in infrastructure in campus in recent years!

    Pros

    Lots of Downtime. Half the time people block are calls are run interference for the person we are calling for.
    Fun environment. Lots of games and activities to keep morale up.
    Cool people that interact while calling.

    Cons

    Angry alumni. Some can say incredibly rude things.
    Shifts can be long when you are calling a low calling pool. People that have refused to give are especially hard to talk to.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes a quieter work environment is necessary. I cannot hear over the music in the background if the prospect is a low talker.

    Pros

    Everyone is respected no matter your sexual orientation, gender, age, or race

    Cons

    The only issue is that they are very strict about training. It's a head ache but when it's a job that everyone is dying to have you do it.

    Pros

    UNC Chapel Hill has everything you want in an academic setting: great students, fantastic colleagues, and a commitment to the people of North Carolina. I spent my early academic career in the Ivy League, but I found my home at UNC.

    Cons

    The legislature can make cuts and hurt the mission fo the university. There are also salary freezes unless you get an outside offer.

    Advice to Management

    Budgets are tight

    Pros

    Senior staff surprised me by always reached out, anticipating need. In my department, I was never micromanaged, and all opinions and recommendations were welcome.

    Cons

    The pay is laughable for what I had to do. In my position, I basically project managed a creative department of 6, but got paid as much as a secretary.

    Advice to Management

    No advice to offer to leadership, I think they're doing the best they can with the budget they've been given.
