    I have been working at Duke Clinical Research Institute full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I enjoyed my first year at DCRI working with some very bright individuals with great ideas. Able to work remotely to some extent. Educational opportunities, however it needs to be very specific to position. Having said that, it has been more difficult to get approval for trainings due to DCRIs current financial situation.

    Cons

    Over the last several months, my opinion of DCRI has completely changed. While I have enjoyed the idea of working at a place attempting to be 'innovative', I think DCRI has a long way to go before they can claim this label. The projects seem chaotic in an industry where planning and execution are critical. Most Project Leaders I have work with do not lead, they manage by intimidation or they are simply not present... with their project team. I suppose it may be a lack of training, tools, resources, etc, but in my experience this is one of the worst places I have experienced for project leadership. There seems to be a lot of distrust between staff and management in general right now, likely due to the recent RIF. That may be challenging for DCRI to get past, given how long that process took place, and how the working environment was allowed to spiral downward for so long.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in the staff that remains. Listen to them, provide trainings, allow for new ideas that come from those 'in the trenches'. We hear a lot of talk about all of the great changes coming to DCRI moving forward, but until anything is presented and put in place, great employees will continue to move elsewhere.

    I have been working at Duke Clinical Research Institute full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, decent pay, lots of activities.

    Cons

    Parking is expensive, lots of work that is sometimes overwhelming. No diversity in management.

    Advice to Management

    Value the lower ranking employees as much as the higher ups. It would also be nice to see more people of color (african american, hispanic,asian) in some of the management positions instead of just assistants and janitors. We have nothing to aspire to because it seems we never get promoted.
