I worked at North Carolina State University full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Great flexibility and autonomy. If you're a faculty member, it's pretty good. If you're a professional, non-faculty employee, it can also be good. Lots of vacation time. I don't know about regular staff.

Cons

Salary is below market. Recognition of doing a good job is non existent. Leadership from department to department is highly variable. Some department/unit heads have no management training or experience. This creates undesirable results

Advice to Management

Recognize star performers better, find more incentives for employees. Require management training before promoting to dept./unit head.

    Pros

    Knowledgeable, helpful faculty. Interesting research topics with a strong focus on getting to know other interns and what their research projects are about.

    Cons

    Most work is done individually or in small groups, larger groups are rare. Amount of work varies greatly depending on research topic/mentor.
