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

    Pros

    great place to work. There is some "politics" around but overall its a wonderful place to work and there are a lot of great people.

    Cons

    Not a lot of advancement opportunities. If you are looking to learn and advance your skills at a healthy place, this is not the place to work. You do get to choose 1 training class a year, which is nice, but not a lot, if any, on the job training to advance skills.

    Advice to Management

    More Opportunities for advancement should be available to everyone, not just certain people who "know the right people"
