    I have been working at Duke University Health System full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Not having patient contact in a call center. Having your own cube. Team building activities planned by the committee.

    Cons

    Felt like I was just another number. Duke will replace you quickly. Some managers actually care while a lot doesn't. People have just quit without a two week notice. Some within their 90 day probation. If there was a high call volume, you get a 30 minute lunch. It varies day to day so you never know when you get a hour or a 30.
