    I have been working at Duke University full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great learning environment for getting accustomed to office work, flexible hours, good pay and great health insurance, perks of working at a college campus like library access and free movies.

    Cons

    Duke is weirdly inflexible about certain things, like making you pay for parking and use vacation hours if the office closes due to weather.

    Advice to Management

    As a university, I think the direction is fine. Management advice would have to be specific to individual offices.
