    I worked at Duke University full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Duke 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.

    Cons

    The 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.
