    I have been working at University of North Carolina full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    UNC (school of medicine specifically) is invested in helping you grow professionally--especially through time to devote to research endeavors. I should clarify that my role is largely within the outpatient clinic setting, though I am employed by the university. Competitive vacation and decent healthcare benefits.

    Cons

    Pay is less competitive than comparable private institutions, however, the culture made up for this in my opinion.
