I have been working at Duke University part-time (less than an year)

Pros

Duke is a fun campus with tons of jobs available for undergraduate students. You will have a lot of competition for jobs, but if you search, there will be no issue.

Cons

The competition for jobs is the toughest part. When there are fantastic opportunities available, students across campus jump at their chance and are tough to beat out.

    I worked at Duke University full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Salaries were competitive; benefits were great; atmosphere was top-notch, intellectually and socially. The people I worked with at Duke were friendly, intelligent, and team-oriented. Buildings/workspaces were amazing. And there is a newish library next to the medical center now. This affords some great workspace whenever you need to write or prepare a presentation. Projects were state-of-the-art. Seminars on campus drew top-notch researchers. Studies being published in labs at Duke are cutting edge....lots of leaders in each field. And there are great fitness centers on campus - a kick-butt cross country trail, etc. So you can go for a great run over lunch. Overall, it's just a great place to be.

    Cons

    Parking was a pain, and the labs were small in some cases: very few people in each lab, working under each P.I. P.I.s had some in-fighting, at times, which made things awkward. The younger P.I.s treated the place like it was a pressure cooker at times. But they pulled in great grants. So I guess it balanced out.
