Reviews

Company Culture

Mostly a positive environment

Challenging Work

Work is very easy

Suggestions for improvement

  • Have directors do some of the day to day work to understand what we go through

What I like about the company

I have a great boss who gives me a lot of freedom but at the same time allows me to approach him with questions

What I dislike about the company

I think there is a lack of accountability with the higher up directors and dont have to do that much and get paid a ton more than me. They should be held even more accountable than me and it doesnt seem like its that way

Suggestions for improvement

  • It would be nice to see Human Resources take a more proactive role in helping to identify ways managers could provide non-monetary benefits to employees. As it is, some managers do a great job and others completely ignore employees.

What I like about the company

The overall work environment is p[retty good, but the salary and benefits are no longer competitive due to state budget cuts. Salaries have remained flat while insurance co-pays and deductibles have increased, as has parking costs.

What I dislike about the company

The salary and benefits are worsening, however, that is not the company’s fault as salary is dictated at the state level.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would like to see Human Resources devote time and resources to assisting supervisors and managers learn how to utilize non-monetary ways of providing benefit to employees. I think it would make a huge difference in morale.

What I like about the company

I love my job and employer. The opportunities presented to me have made me successful in my career. I am concerned with the politicization of the System. By the NC State Legislature and am concerned about the work environment as we move forward.

What I dislike about the company

Compensation is not competitive, but that is ultimately controlled by the legislature and not the System.
