Great Employer with great benefits!

Research Technician (Former Employee)
Durham, NC

ProsDuke has a "cradle to grave" approach to employees. With benefits that include family health, dental, insurance, employee appreciation days/picnics, and even a generous "widows/orphans" type plan, Duke attempts to treat employees as family and provide the necessary support structure to keep its staff happy.

ConsThe only down side I ever noticed was a lower pay scale than some other academic institutions and certainly a much lower pay scale than that in private industry.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    OK place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    I have been working at Duke University full-time


    Pros: The benefits are wonderful. You get two weeks of PTO, sick time,… Cons: No room for growth in the area I work. Policies and procedures are antiquated. … Advice to Senior Management: Reward the employees who deserve it and get rid of… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
