Stable workplace, but lacks opportunitites for growth
Project Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Durham, NCMarch 27, 2017
Work is more stable than average. Limited opportunity for advancement/growth in non-clinical roles. Healthcare benefits are better than average. Salary is not as competitive as it could be, the trade off seems to be the healthcare coverage. There seems to be a lot of people in "camping" mode, meaning, they continue to remain in roles even though they are not performing well, and lack motivation or desire to move on.
Pros
stable work & healthcare benefits
Cons
lack of growth opportunities for persons in non-clinical roles

Environmental Services Specialist (Former Employee) –  Raleigh, NCMarch 7, 2017
I was a housekeeper in the Environmental Services department. Most of the faculty/staff looked down on us and treated us as though we were the lowest in the hospital...even though NOBODY in the hospital could do their job without housekeepers. HOW CAN YOU WORK IN AN UNSANITARY ENVIRONMENT...AT A HOSPITAL... Job was not hard...the people made the job horrible. I loved my patients for they kept me there the 4 years that I was employed there.

Working At Duke Hospital
PSA (Former Employee) –  Durham, NCFebruary 21, 2017
Working at Duke Hospital in Durham, NC was great. Met a lot of people from all over the world and made good friends that will last a lifetime. Working a typical day was hard, busy and rewarding once you helped someone overcome or deal with the news they have gotten and they give you a hug. Management on the other hand, depending on who/which department varies...you have some that wants to do right by everyone on the team and then you have the ones that take your ideas and use them and get credit for your work. Over all, I still would not have changed my mind for working at this place and I wish I was still there, but on to bigger and better opportunities.

Fellow students are your best support
Research Assistant (Current Employee) –  Durham, NCFebruary 16, 2017
As with many other places, Duke provides decent stipend to its graduate students. But the overall location of the university makes it more than enough to cover the living expense (depending on what departments you are working with). In terms of life-style...Well, it's graduate school. so don't expect too much. At the end of the day, your friends and colleagues are your best bet to vent your frustration.
Pros
Decent Stipend
Cons
Location (but it's on the rise)
