I have been working at Duke University full-time

Pros

Free course, free degree, and lots of fun. Environment is very nice. and you have a lot of chance to meet with various kind of ppl. It is a great place to stay for 5-6 years. campus is very beautiful.

Cons

Security level is a little bit low around campus. On campus it is very good. But the city and school are trying to improve that these years.

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

    Pros

    Child tuition benefit, health care benefits, 403(b) employer contributions

    Cons

    Average pay, below average advancement opportunities for women and African Americans at all staff ranks on the University side of operations; virtually impossible for women hired on the bi-weekly payroll to transfer to monthly, salaried positions no matter what their educational attainment and work experience; below average investment in the professional development and training of employees; expectation to be accessible electronically 24/7 (including holidays--yes, this means Christmas, Thanksgiving and Easter--, weekends, vacations), weak training/oversight of managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Duke is losing a lot of money and talent every day of the year because of the poor quality of their managers. Invest in selecting better managers, train them in developing talent and deploying resources, and be fairer and smarter about considering women on staff for promotion to management.
