Great benefits for employees on the university side.
Insurance is way too expensive for what you get, their doctors seem aloof and to not like their jobs, people are dying of cancer and not receiving proper treatment, doctor appts. are way too far out, the staff is rude and condescending. Maternity leave is only 3 weeks after you take 3 weeks of PTO or non paid. There is no bereavement for deaths in the family, you must use sick time!
If you live in certain zip codes (needed to qualify), the Duke Select Health Insurance plan is an incredible deal. Currently, no annual deductible and no co-insurance max. $20 for PCP and $55 for specialist. However, the only out of network care you can get is emergency/ urgent care.
Great health insurance. No retirement match.
Very good advisors for retirements benefits.
Good advice on 401k plans
The only thing that could improve the benefits package is if you didn't have to contribute to the cost of health insurance. Duke contributes to a retirement plan no matter how old you are and you can choose how to invest the money. It's free money essentially. The time off is typical for the market.
Was a great experience to be at Duke. Graduate school for the most part does well to cater to the students.
Best: health insurance, the worst is retirement
For exempt employees the benefits are very good. Non exempt the retirement is quite poor.
