    I worked at The University of North Carolina System

    Pros

    There were plenty of slow days that allowed for studying

    Cons

    Change in management, big presentation set ups without help, working until 3 am when only 1 or 2 people enter the building

    Advice to Management

    Logs are pointless, the building doesn't need to be open past midnight,

            StarStarStarStarStar
              Current Employee - Research Associate in Chapel Hill, NC

              I have been working at The University of North Carolina System full-time for more than 5 years

              Pros

              Great benefits, including a generous amount of vacation time; Excellent scientific research with some of the best in their fields

              Cons

              Amount of bureaucratic red tape is astronomical and the status quo is impossible to move beyond; pay is not necessarily commensurate with education and experience due to laws around equity; work-life balance is not great due; at the mercy of the NC General Assembly for pay increases

              Advice to Management

              Stop making professional development so impossible to achieve.
