      Pros

      Overall, a very friendly and collaborative environment. Most faculty and scientists here are very supportive. Its really a great place to do high impact research.

      Cons

      Some of the faculty treat their post docs and graduate students like crap. Not exactly an unique situation to UNC, but just a reminder to anyone looking to post doc their to check up on the reputation of their principal investigator before working for them.
