    I have been working at Duke University Health System full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - A good place for someone to gain experience
    - Benefits are decent (however, salary is not competitive)

    Cons

    - Below market wages
    - No incentives to keep current employees (it’s cheaper to hire new grads)
    - Costly and inconvenient parking
    - Expensive not that great cafeteria food and small portions

    Advice to Management

    - Work more on employee retainment... offering new grads around the same amount of money as others with more experience because you are short staffed is disrespectful to your CURRENT employees. Those same employees have to not only fill the staffing gap, but also teach the new people. That is why you are seeing mass exoduses. This in turn will decrease quality of patient care.
