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

    Pros

    Great environment. Obviously it depends greatly on the department or division, but I have found that Duke University Health System offers a very good working environment and good collaboration between co-workers. I have enjoyed my time here.

    Cons

    The system is huge. Of course, this is unavoidable to an extent but the institutional bureaucracy shows. Just hope you never have a technical, HR, etc issue! Sometimes it is hard not to feel completely loss in the mammoth system that is Duke University Health System.

    I have been working at Duke University Health System full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    Stability, good benefits especially if you take advantage of the educational benefits allowing you to go back to school and use the tuition reimbursement.

    Cons

    Pay is not competitive at all. Not rewarded for achieving an Exception performance review. May have some difficulty moving to higher levels even though you more than qualify for position. I interviewed for several position and was called back three times for additional interviews, but never received the position.

    Advice to Management

    Competitive salaries, better increases which line up with performance review. More opportunities for growth for staff assistants.

  4. "Duke School of Nursing doesn't respect their staff assistants. Most are over qualified, but not treated as such."

    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Duke University Health System full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    They do train the assistants

    Cons

    Low promotion rates, low raises, condescending by some of the professors. Family benefits costs too much and pay is low.

    Advice to Management

    Change the staff assistant titles to Sr. Administrative Assistants and Executive Assistants and pay them more. Don't add on more work to their duties and fail to pay them more or give them a title change.

    I worked at Duke University Health System part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexible hours for students. Tasks are simple, and over-achieving is essentially pointless.

    Cons

    Repetitive and mind-numbing. No advancement opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    You would expect that as adults people would be more mature and considerate of others. But don't be blind to the office politics.
