    Pros

    The opportunity to see diagnosis/cases that you may not see elsewhere because it’s duke and that’s where patients go when other doctors don’t know what to do

    Cons

    The hourly base pay rate isn’t as good as other hospitals in the area, but the various differ do make a positive difference.

    I have been working at Duke University Health System full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits, nice employees in my building, overtime opportunities

    Cons

    Poor pay, very outdated and hard to navigate website that I was expected to know how to use within the first week, rude HR and IT people, and have to PAY for parking? It's like I'm having to pay for the ability to work here.

    Advice to Management

    Employees should not have to pay to park.

    Pros

    Enjoy the patient population and staff and the area of Durham, NC. Patients get good care and I have faith in the medical system

    Cons

    Lower pay than should be for metropolitan area. Surprisingly, the health system does not value lactation in general. ...but there is going to be a change since they are moving to Baby Friendly!! Normally LC's are with the same model as Clinical Specialists and are salaried with their own department and all that goes with a 'lactation department'. At the big Duke Hospital and the pediatric offices this is the case but not at the Duke Regional Hospital. At DRH they are managed by and paid as nurses and get low pay. Nurse Specialists are supposed to get more and they do in other areas at Duke such as nurse educators, ostomy-wound therapists and infection control nurses. May change over years especially since this is inconsistent within the same health system?.

    Advice to Management

    Lactation Consultants are Clinical Specialists and are normally treated as specialist in their field and are salaried. The average salary is $72-$75 in the USA and in a city over $90k. Duke Healthy Systems is all over the map with how they treat Lactation Consultants. At big Duke they have their own department and wear professional dress with lab coats, they have a large office and each with their own desk and computer, and are salaried with good pay and benefits. At DRH, they are hired as nurses and don't even have an office let alone a department and are paid wage by the hour and only a wage compared to other RN's? They are then again treated better and considered Clinical Specialists in the pediatric offices and again are salaried and have their own scheduling, a large office in addition to their own exam/consult room and wear professional dress rather than scrubs. This has been brought up to management at DRH and then the LC's get intimidated by losing their office and then also one was told she was replaceable while another was reprimanded. Seems like it is a bit unfair. I would like to stay but hope these things improve. LC's are usually women, where wound therapists, infection control, and nurse educators are often men. .... Not an unusual situation in the world, men being paid better than women, yet usually Duke does better at least in their propaganda about diversity and fairness. Please put your money where your mouth is with Lactation Consultants.

    I have been working at Duke University Health System full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Coworkers are hard-working, caring people who form a great team. Sr. Manager is supportive and trusts us to do a great job. Never micromanages, treats us like adults. COO knows everyone by their first name and appreciates our work efforts. Work from home is allowed and encouraged, schedules are fairly flexible. Salaries are fair for the most part. Excellent health care and retirement benefits, not to mention access to best doctors in the world. Free parking. Diverse culture with opportunities for all who work hard.

    Cons

    Building (not Duke-owned) is not in best shape. Mold present in ceiling tiles. But hey, FREE PARKING.

    Advice to Management

    Update customer surveys with more appropriate, valuable questions.
