    Access to Duke services - internet, library, events, community, preventative health (Live for Life).

    Too much bureaucracy - it was slow to get in the system with HR to begin, and purchasing things required a lot of paperwork.

  2.  

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

    Former Employee - Administrative Manager in Durham, NC

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
