ProsDuke creates an environment where you can collaborate across multiple disciplines and explore research interests that are outside of your immediate fied of expertise.

ConsThe compensation was not the best given the responsibilities and expectations but this varied from lab to lab. The benefits were okay but not great.

Advice to Senior ManagementManagements varies based on the personality of your immediate supervisor or PI. The best advice would be to offer more training to PIs so that they understand better how to manage people.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
