    A very supportive, collegial environment.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Durham, NC

    ProsGreat people, feeling of contributing to the greater good, supportive, tuition reimbursement, great benefits, collegiality. Overall, it is a wonderful place to work.

    ConsThere is so much bureaucracy and risk management that it often works to the detriment of development and progress. Highly focused on MDs rather than the interdisciplinary dynamics that make Duke great.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus less on the MDs and more on the interdisciplinary dynamics that make this place great. Losing the rest of the interdisciplinary team to other institutions who value them more will be of great detriment to Duke.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
