Suggestions for improvement

  • I would begin hiring younger employees to help with the new emerging technologies that are being used. Employees should be required to learn how to use the new software.

What I like about the company

The management made sure that the other employees felt comfortable about the job tasks they were doing. They were approachable and willing to help.

What I dislike about the company

I would dispose of the cliques within the workplace that exclude others in the office.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Pay scale should be adjusted and no company should try and force a quota of "diversity" in hiring. The best person should be hired with nor regard to anything else.

What I like about the company

The company has always been supportive when family emergencies have come up, especially health issues. I was allowed to greatly alter my schedule when my mother was sick.

What I dislike about the company

There are a few people who greatly abuse the freedom we are afforded to work independantly

Suggestions for improvement

  • Better training and communication while switching operating systems.

What I like about the company

The people I work with are very kind and understanding, and the other departments we work with are as well. We work with students, so you get to know a large variety of types of people. The work is laid-back and you are able to do things at your own pace. The benefits offered, whether that be health care or tuition assistance, are amazing.

What I dislike about the company

Since the University is so large, there are issues with communication between departments, and it is not always easy to know what is expected of you. But thankfully, since you can work at your own pace for most things, you are able to figure out what you need to before any issues arise.

  • It's hard to say. Outside of greater benefits and pay for non-tenure track employees, perhaps making parking permits more accessible and easy to afford?

What I like about the company

The other staff that I work with are incredible, as is teaching. The environment is welcoming, and the others who work here clearly want to be there.

What I dislike about the company

The lack of benefits for non-tenure-track employees.

  • Greater mentorship for PhDs and postdocs.

What I like about the company

UNC is one of the top universities in the country! Good benefits for postdocs, they pay your health insurance (BCBSNC). Labs are well equipped.

What I dislike about the company

Not much to disapprove of, maybe the fact that they don't give any retirement benefits for postdocs.
