Senior Manager

Senior Manager (Former Employee)
Durham, NC

I worked at Duke University full-time for more than a year

ProsExcellent health benefits; great facilities; beautiful campus; staff, undergrads, grad, an professional students all interact with due to shared proximity on campus.

ConsCan be downside to working with some faculty st time. Parking is really tough- may need to walk a bit or catch a shuttle from parking lot. Upper level management can be driven heavily by bonuses. Culture is the same as most academic medical centers in the sense that a lot is to be expected workwise - as you move up through ranks can feel like you are doing the work of 2 or 3 people or more at times. Not too much negative beyond that.

Advice to Senior ManagementInvest in he employees that work for and find creative ways to incentivize employees even if unable to provide higher salary. Also provide opportunities for advancement, mentoring, and resources (books, website subscriptions, and conferences) as options in spite of the tough financial times everyone experiences.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
