I have been working at Duke University Health System full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Duke offers excellent benefits. Health care, dental care are good but you'll pay for them. Retirement plans for salaried employees are very good with matching contributions. Durham is a great city with lots of culture of all types.

Cons

It is easy to get lost in the system. You'll have to be good at "networking" to get ahead. There seems to be infinite resources for new buildings but not enough to give employees meaningful raises. Management turn-over seems high to me. Managers often lack people skills or technical skill. Hard to find someone with both.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't take "worker bees" for granted. Don't assume that we're a captive audience because the economy keeps us from finding another job. Treat us with respect and trust. Give out a kind word or letter of appreciation from time to time.

    Pros

    Good work - life balance.

    Cons

    Fellows who receive their own grants are not considered employees and are not eligible for employee benefits (retirement, etc) but post-docs who fail to get their own funding are. Seems backwards to reward the failures and "punish" success.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a long hard look at your team. I was a proud member of Duke until I came to work there. Management has no clue in areas where it is critical. Just Culture is a joke at this company, there were remarks made all the time that were not appreciated or appropriate.
