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

    Pros

    The retirement is the best of any place I have worked. They give a lot of PTO as well.

    Cons

    Working across multiple teams. Some of the technical teams sit in different buildings so it lowers the amount of collaboration.

      I have been working at Duke University Health System full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Good health insurance, good for resume to have worked at Duke, Not too much oversight or micromanaging. Good for getting foot in the door of clinical research. Good retirement plan but not vested until employed for three years.

      Cons

      Pay monthly permit to park and then ride shuttle bus to building. No consistency between research teams as far as policies, technology used or office perks. Be aware when hired that many of the benefits Duke touts in their orientation and handbook may not be available to you based on your manager's decision of if they want to utilize them or not. Some teams are in an office building and are able to work remotely or work...

      Advice to Management

      Utilize the many resources Duke has to bring the research teams into 2019. Many things are still done a certain way "because that's how we have always done them". Fairly applying supplemental benefits or educating the managers about these options could help employees to wish to stay longer.

      Gain strong experience, skills. RNs are all ages.

      Start increasing hourly wage so strong RNs won't leave after two years

      All benefits are very good. That is good if you last beyond 3 years

        I have been working at Duke University Health System full-time for more than a year

        Pros

        You are able to get a lot of experience with difficult cases such as with patients that other hospitals are unable to take / refuse to do surgeries on. My floor has a great atmosphere in which we all work very well together. My management and coworkers are amazing and have allowed the transition from new grad to CNII smooth and encouraging. Also many people are not from in state which allows you to make a lot of friends...

        Cons

        Pay is not competitive in the area. They say you are getting underpaid because you are able to use Duke on your resume. Sometimes billing and money is placed over care of individual patients.
