    I have been working at University of North Carolina full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits - sick time, vacation, paid holidays, education benefits, good insurance for individual full-time employees.
    If you can get a private-industry job instead, you will earn more and have more opportunities for advancement.

    Cons

    Old school patriarchal hierarchy. Plantation mentality. Racist. Low pay. Difficult to advance because of red tape policies.

    Advice to Management

    You will continue to lose talent to better paying corporate jobs that offer more opportunity for growth and advancement.
