    I have been working at The University of North Carolina System

    Pros

    This is a beautiful campus, with lots of nice people. The surrounding town of Chapel Hill is a nice place, and it is also accessible from Durham by bus.

    Cons

    As a postdoctoral fellow at a university, much of the experience is determined by the lab I am in rather than at the level of the university. Parking is an issue. The little parking that is available on campus is expensive and often distant. I take the bus from Durham, which is a pleasant ride, during which I can read or enjoy the scenery, but on the rare occasion when I need to drive in, my parking options are not good.

    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.
