Graduate research assistant (Current Employee) – Kannapolis, NC – January 27, 2017
Standard work-life balance and excellent opportunity to learn new skills. I learned good research and life skills. The management is very supportive. Workplace is healthy and professional. Hardest part of the job was workload and most enjoyable part of the job was to experience the thrill of discovery.
Wish I had taken advantage of all the opportunities this position offered. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with the students. Seeing them accomplish the goals set and graduate was a great experience for me. It never gets old.
University lies thru omission. No structure in place for advancement or any raises. Negotiated salary at hire is all you will ever get. Health nsurance cost is same as that bought on private market yourself. Only perk.....time accrues for sick days and vacation days immediately upon hire. If you are looking for low pay with days off this is your place to work. Poor scheduling led to many mandatory work weekends. Then you take a comp. Day off during the week. Lots of hidden agendas and politics. Several were laid off in other departments with upwards of 10 years vested in university positions. Job titles renamed and others hired in at lower pay etc.
Big changes ahead, but a little stuck on the old ways...
Employee Development and Success Coordinator (Current Employee) – Raleigh, NC – December 22, 2016
NC State is an innovative campus with a focus on students, collaboration, and innovation. With efforts to centralize programs and initiatives and increase communication across divisions and departments, NC State is moving along!
My direct supervisors have been amazing but, as in any bureaucratic organization, it can get a little political at times which can interfere with efficiency and innovation.
Innovative, general job security and benefits for full-time permanent employees
Poultry Unit Assistant (Former Employee) – Greensboro, NC – December 16, 2016
My manager gave us task to do in the beginning and then it became an everyday thing. My co-workers were all friendly and ready to work. The hardest part of the job was being able to get all the work done in a time-framed manor. I mostly enjoy gaining knowledge every day on our animals.
Teaching geology labs and later on becoming the geoscience outreach representative for the school provided a rewarding experience. I was given freedom to tailor instruction to my own guidelines while staying within the bounds of what was expected to be taught.
Graduate Research Assistant (Current Employee) – Raleigh, NC – December 14, 2016
Flexible hours, and interesting work. Wide range of resources available to students. Receptive faculty. Administration is a bit cumbersome. Overall lots of opportunities to gain experience in subjects outside of your specific research topic.
