    Pros

    Educational environment, low-cost or no-cost classes, diverse population,

    4.0
    Current Employee - Research Assistant in Chapel Hill, NC

    I have been working at The University of North Carolina System part-time

    Decent pay for the area, considering.

    Former Employee - Research Analyst 
    Recommends

    I worked at The University of North Carolina System full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Often work on a team that is truly collaborative and supportive. Some positions have a little bit of room for experimentation and innovations. Working in a University environment provides the chance to work with creative and interesting staff and students.

    Cons

    There is a bureaucracy for *everything* and it slows down a lot of work. Salaries aren't competitive with what you could get in the private sector (but there are other advantages that offset the pay issue). Benefits are State of NC benefits and aren't great. Though the State Pension System is one of the better run ones in the country.

  10. "Grad school - STEM"

    4.0
    Former Employee - Graduate Research Assistant in Chapel Hill, NC

    I worked at The University of North Carolina System full-time

    Pros

    Resources and facilities are great Health insurance is great

    Cons

    Culture and work-life balance are challenging
