Other Employee Reviews for Duke University

  1. I think the Duke Raleigh has good people, but lousy options for being such a small place and a Duke Entity.

    I worked at Duke University full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I like working with Duke for its flexible schedules, great benefits and nice people. I did like my position where I did not feel micromanaged and I had options to have different shifts in different portions of the hospital.

    Cons

    I do not feel that learning and/or job improvement was a strong asset for this company. In my previous job position, I felt like I was stuck and the one of two ways that I found to move forward were not applicable to me. I also feel that because this was a smaller hospital, the resources were limited, which can be a factor when considering.


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

    I worked at Duke University full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits and health care

    Cons

    Salary 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 Management

    You 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.
