    Stable, but unpleasant

    Apr 15, 2021 - Anonymous Employee 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Stability (allegedly very difficult to get fired). Nice employer match on the 401k (but you have to suffer through being underpaid for 5 years before the match vests). Tuition stipend for enrolling in classes (this process is pretty horribly bureaucratic, but if you can find out how to enroll, it was an otherwise great experience).

    Cons

    No clear path for career growth and low salaries (in order to get a raise, you have to get your job reclassified which is an arduous process or you have to leverage a different job offer and basically pretend you're going to quit). Terrible management and support for staff (my department has had 20% of our staff quit during the last year due almost exclusively to departmental leadership and a toxic work environment. Overly bureaucratic

    Better than Duke, but ...

    Feb 6, 2021 - Marketing Director in Durham, NC
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Campus is pleasant, your bus pass is free if you commute by public transit, there is a push for racial equity and dealing with a past directly connected to slavery. Time off for everyone at end of December.

    Cons

    Expectations for executive level managers are very low. Hostile and dysfunctional work environment in my department, with daily gaslighting, criticism of womens' clothing choices even when very professional, forcing employees out or ghosting them when they don't show enough deference to leadership even when their work is excellent, passive aggression toward trans employees, and regular racist comments from upper management. Pay inequity is a massive issue, with top earner making 700 percent more than bottom earner in my department, and inexperienced male employees making much more than experienced and better educated women staff. In my first week I was warned by three different people to steer clear of an older male employee because he treats women so badly. This place has so much potential but it's an unhealthy place to work.

    Great Place to work

    Jul 25, 2021 - Patient Navigator in Chapel Hill, NC
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Great benefits are offered from the state, holidays off, winter break. Plenty of growth opportunities.

    Cons

    Just like in any job, sometimes there are management decisions that affect your work environment and stability. They could increase base salary.

    Best work environment

    Mar 18, 2021 - Clinical Research Coordinator 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    I loved working here. The work environment was more professional, which I craved after my last job experience. It was busy and a lot of work, but I grew so much as an employee. The level of formal reviews and employee growth opportunities was unmatched.

    Cons

    It's a ton of work and very busy. Hard to wear all the hats and juggle the multitude of responsibilities.
