I worked at Duke University full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Salaries were competitive; benefits were great; atmosphere was top-notch, intellectually and socially. The people I worked with at Duke were friendly, intelligent, and team-oriented. Buildings/workspaces were amazing. And there is a newish library next to the medical center now. This affords some great workspace whenever you need to write or prepare a presentation. Projects were state-of-the-art. Seminars on campus drew top-notch researchers. Studies being published in labs at Duke are cutting edge....lots of leaders in each field. And there are great fitness centers on campus - a kick-butt cross country trail, etc. So you can go for a great run over lunch. Overall, it's just a great place to be.

Cons

Parking was a pain, and the labs were small in some cases: very few people in each lab, working under each P.I. P.I.s had some in-fighting, at times, which made things awkward. The younger P.I.s treated the place like it was a pressure cooker at times. But they pulled in great grants. So I guess it balanced out.
