    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

    I have been working at The University of North Carolina System full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great opportunities to participate in your work community if your boss lets you participate

    Cons

    Your experience here is completely dictated by what boss you have. If you work in an office where your boss doesn't like to let you participate in things, you will feel isolated and enjoy working there much less. In addition, cost of health insurance for a family is extremely expensive, and doesn't cover that much! The salary also isn't that great.
