I have been working at Duke University full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Nice school, nice place to live in terms of the weather and living cost. People are in general very kind. Of course, you have a lot to do if you are a big basketball fan.

Cons

Pay is not that good compared to a lot of other places. Science and Engineering programs here are not matched to the reputation of the school. Summer can be very hot.

    I have been working at Duke University part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There are many pro's to working in such a positive environment as this one. Among them are pretty good hours, interesting and varied colleagues, great events, and working on worthwhile projects.

    Cons

    There really aren't too many con's I can think of, unless you don't enjoy working in an academic setting. There may be events that are difficult to schedule or some office politics to deal with.

    I have been working at Duke University part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Duke has the most beautiful campus I have ever seen. The employees are highly qualified and very professional. Everyone is organized and responsive.

    Cons

    I do not see any cons other than the very expensive parking. However, I think this is an incentive to support the environment. Lack of diversity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider diversity among students.
