    Pros

    Good Benefits
    Job Security
    Good training
    Lots of opportunity for growth or changing departments

    Cons

    Low low low pay. Seriously I cant wrap my mind around how Duke gives so little for their support staff. I get that they give all their money to Drs and Nurses but with the money they make off of parking at the hospital for a week they could give some serious raises to PRMO staff.

    Advice to Management

    Pay.People.More... there is nothing more demotivating than knowing that the same jobs at other companies pay more.
