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

Pros

Excellent health benefits; great facilities; beautiful campus; staff, undergrads, grad, an professional students all interact with due to shared proximity on campus.

Cons

Can be downside to working with some faculty st time. Parking is really tough- may need to walk a bit or catch a shuttle from parking lot. Upper level management can be driven heavily by bonuses. Culture is the same as most academic medical centers in the sense that a lot is to be expected workwise - as you move up through ranks can feel like you are doing the work of 2 or 3 people or more at times. Not too much negative beyond that.

Advice to Management

Invest in he employees that work for and find creative ways to incentivize employees even if unable to provide higher salary. Also provide opportunities for advancement, mentoring, and resources (books, website subscriptions, and conferences) as options in spite of the tough financial times everyone experiences.
