Financial Analyst (Current Employee) –  Durham, NCFebruary 1, 2019
There is no room for improvement or advancement with this university. It's all the same and you must conform or you will be eliminated. There is no enrichment of policy or procedure in the administrative positions.

Not a great place for people of color
Publishing Specialist (Current Employee) –  Durham, NCFebruary 1, 2019
Duke likes diversity as an idea, but does nothing to maintain workplace diversity or promote people of color. It's a disappointing place to work. If you're looking to learn about publishing go somewhere else.

Some parts of Duke is great to work for other places not so much. If you work in a department that has good people you should be ok. Benefits are ok for the area but could always be better.
