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

    Duke has great flexible schedules. Mostly because there are very little deadlines that need to be kept.

    Cons

    Extremely poor leadership in Information Technology. Managers have moved up the ladder simply by politics and not by merit. They care little for their staff and are rarely seen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Administration really needs overahaul its functional support areas. The university standards are so low and are so far behind the times. A total reevaluation of the staffing model should be considered for more efficiency, better talent, happier employees, and cost effectiveness
