Great if you're a researcher/professor; very different as a staff person!

Administrative Manager (Former Employee)
Durham, NC

ProsGood benefits and health care

ConsSalary was very bad when I started and only became reasonable just before I left. The politics became awful. Worked insane number of hours.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou should value your staff as much as the professors, researchers and senior management. Do not make prejudgements about people and situations, or allow managers to make them political pawns; you lose good staff that way.
