    I worked at Duke University full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Duke actually has good benefits for grad students - insurance, gauranteed maternity/paternity leave and vacation (unusual for PhD students).

    Cons

    long hours, no direction, little career development, no feedback

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give PhD students more career guidance, more feedback, make time-to-PhD smaller

    I worked at Duke University as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Paid for room and board, salary is fair, kids are amazing, staff is wonderful

    Cons

    3 weeks out of your summer where you have no time for anything or anyone else really except for the other staff

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is excellent. I had a fantastic academic coordinator on site as well. I have heard that makes all the different in the world.
