Benefits are great, work-life balance, resources, training, nice colleagues, nice facilities, good location, prestige, not stressful work.
Have to pay for parking out of your paycheck, things can take a long time to happen because of many levels of management. The majority of people who work here are middle aged women. Pay is less than other CROs, but they are currently in the process of fixing that pay difference for CRAs/ Lead CRAs and Project Leaders to match industry. That should take place in January.2Duke Clinical Research Institute Response9y
Thank you for your feedback. I’m glad there are many things you enjoy about working at the DCRI. As part of an academic institution, we operate differently than our industry competitors, but we also have access to a wide array of benefits made possible by Duke University. Also, thank you for acknowledging our commitment to offering a competitive compensation package. We have a diverse workforce and are always looking to further improve our employee diversity. If you know someone who would be an ideal fit with our mission, I urge you to contact one of our recruiters. -Nicole Hedrick, Chief Human Resources Officer

Doctors are a joy to work with. You really feel a sense of purpose being there. Just knowing that you are part of something really big makes it so rewarding.
Pay is horrible, not only is the pay bad but you have to pay $70 for parking. Management is not at all professional. Micro management to the 10th degree. It's pretty bad and compounded with low pay makes it unbearable.1Duke Clinical Research Institute Response7y
I am excited to hear you had a strong connection to our faculty and mission. Your feedback about opportunities has been heard and we are working to innovate our approach to administrative support which will provide a variety of career options.

Flexible schedule and adequate leave time. Continuing education and training is encouraged. Parking is close by (though you pay dearly for it).
Upper management has no interest in lower-level employees, initiating changes in processes and procedures without obtaining feedback. When inevitable problems arise, the employees are ignored.1

Flexibility in schedule. Parking is close to the office though you have to pay dearly for it. Good negotiated discounts at local businesses.
Organization is imploding. Good staff members are leaving at an unprecedented rate. Staff are being told it is no longer acceptable to work 40 hours a week and that management will be looking for staff to work 50-60 hours a week. Those not meeting this expectation are criticized. Work like balance is non-existent. Teamwork is non-existent. Some faculty are aggressive towards staff and no repercussions ever come about. Stay away!3
