Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Taught me to work more independently and rely on myself.

Cons

Terrible administration. They made life very difficult. Ranomly will lose your insurance, or not get paid one month, or lose an opportunity because someone failed to compltete a form on time. I wish it was an irregular occurrance, but it's not. It happens to everyone.

Advice to Management

Hire detail-oriented people. Educate them on how to do their job properly, and have consequences for them if they fail. This university has a name to uphold, and it will lose that standing if it doesn't start cari g for its employees through better administation.

    I worked at Duke University part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Duke is a great place to work as a student. There are tons of job opportunities on campus. Working as a Circulation Assistant at Perkins Library is typically coveted by both undergraduates and grad students because you basically get paid to work on homework.

    Pros
    -laid-back environment
    -able to do homework at work
    -easy work

    Cons

    -pay was kind of low, but i was a student working part-time anyway
    -nothing else really
