I have been working at Duke University

Pros

Great opportunities to grow and change positions for internal candidates. There are many wonderful benefits (discounts for local vendors, cheaper insurance, flexible scheduling, paid holidays)

Cons

While there are many opportunities for growth, financial gains for changing positions are considerably less than what outside individuals are offered when coming into Duke.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More awards and bonuses.

    Current Employee - Postdoctoral Associate in Durham, NC

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

    Pros

    Taught me to work more independently and rely on myself.

    Cons

    Terrible administration. They made life very difficult. Ranomly will lose your insurance, or not get paid one month, or lose an opportunity because someone failed to compltete a form on time. I wish it was an irregular occurrance, but it's not. It happens to everyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire detail-oriented people. Educate them on how to do their job properly, and have consequences for them if they fail. This university has a name to uphold, and it will lose that standing if it doesn't start cari g for its employees through better administation.

    Good work environment, an impression of low promotion opportunities

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

    Pros

    Duke tries to be pro-active with helping employees with things like commute cost, health insurance, etc. Graduate students have official advocates on staff. Fairly liberal compensation policies, and a stable workplace feel. Accommodations for kids, etc. Pets are allowed as long as one is responsible for them.

    Cons

    The impression among staff is that pay and promotions are somewhat stagnant. Hard negotiators and up-and-comers would be loathe to work here unless they are in upper management. Parking is always an issue.
