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

    Pros

    Academic culture, employee benefits, retirement contributions, continuing education

    Cons

    Parking is a challenge for some departments. Just getting from your car to work could count as a workout. Also, there's no shortage of people that want to work there, so they are able to low-ball folks on salary. Good for University finances, bad for folks that are trying to advance in their careers financially.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!
