    Pros

    Duke really takes care of their team members.

    Pros

    Health insurance and dentist insurance was pretty good as long as you went to any Duke hospital.

    Cons

    Barely any raises. Pay for parking. No 401k but you could get a pension if you stay a minimum of 5 years

    Lactation Consultants are treated poorly by nursing management

    Oct 9, 2019 - Lactation Consultant in Durham, NC
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The joy of working with moms and babies as well as all the other LC's are nice and hard working. The pay is competitive.

    Cons

    Beware working here as an LC! Current shortage of LC's because 9 quit (75%) all for the same reason and several more looking elsewhere for jobs. The problem is poor management based on bullying and micromanaging from nursing management. LC's are excluded from any decision making or development planning. They have taken away our office at Duke and also our ability to self schedule. They try and prevent the LC's from communicating between the different locations, and there is no Lactation Department anywhere in the Duke Health System, it is just the various nurse managers making uneducated mandates about LC's related to work flow, patient care and etc. They do not want LC input nor do they ask for it. Their current strategy is get as many RN's to pass the IBCLC exam and throw them in there. They want the title only, not the experience or expertise.

    Great Place To Work As A New Graduate Nurse

    Feb 1, 2021 - Registered Nurse, BSN in Durham, NC
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Offers Flexible Scheduling , PTO accumulation, Nurse Residency Program, Great Preceptors, Nurse Loan Forgiveness Program, Uses Epic EMR software, Magnet Hospital , relocation assistance, One of the best hospitals in the USA, Great location to work live and play tons to do great weather!

    Cons

    Duke does not pay nurses enough and does not offer raises and if they do its like 20 cents a year . That is one of the reasons why nurses leave Duke is to find hospitals who will pay them what there worth. Health, dental and vision insurance is also very expensive . Duke also needs some improvement on their nurse to patient ratios they can sometimes be overwhelming especially on Step down, PCU and Med Surg Units.

    Great Focus on employees, working environment and our customers

    Dec 6, 2019 - IT Manager 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Duke focuses heavily on their employees, their are 'work culture' teams set up to dive into what is needed from the level 1's and up and actions are taken as best as they can to improve. Duke has excellent benefits and their PTO/Vaca days compile at a ridiculous rate which is amazing for all.

    Cons

    Duke has so many offices and work areas spread over the area it can be difficult to work together as a team, some things are compartmentalized but they are working to rectify some of that.

    Duke is a learning hospital so there are a lot of opportunities for growth in your career. The leadership team I work under is excellent. I am able to work part time.

    Pros

    Free parking and lots of resources to advance up the clinical ladder… specifically at Duke Regional Hospital.

    Cons

    Currently poor staffing of nurses and nurse aides. Lack of appreciation for the hard work people put in from upper management. Place feels like an assembly line at a factory.
