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.

    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.
