Great place to work ... if you like academic politics

Seniro IT Analyst (Current Employee) Durham, NC

ProsThe benefits are good and, depending on the department you work in, the work can be more stable than the private sector.

ConsDuke is decentralized, so there's no consistency in accountability and management. Central HR and administrators more or less let different units and departmental heads and managers "do their own thing", so often getting ahead depends more on who you know that what you've accomplished. Units and departments don't talk to each other and often compete for attention and funding. It's a rather negative and confrontational atmosphere with no accountability for senior management.

Advice to Senior ManagementI'm not sure much could really improve the culture except for significant changes in management and leadership that would significantly take the university out of the fifty-year old internal politics it's mired in.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
