I've worked here for 5 years and while, like most universities, there are a large number of women in the workforce, few of them are in upper administration or tenured faculty roles. Support for family life is completely dependent on the department you work for. Though Duke HR claims to encourage systems like compressed work weeks or working remotely, this is not a reality in most departments here. Faculty receive much better parental leave benefits than staff which can cause strife within departments. The on-campus daycare "benefit" is a joke costing more than similarly ranked daycares in the area (and more than many lower ranked women make at Duke). Women are often paid less than their male counterparts for the same job and same experience levels.
Duke is the largest employer in the county. The University has a diverse workforce but upper management is dominated by white men. Pay is lower than the private sector but job security is the trade off. Benefits and time off are excellent and management is very flexible with schedules and childcare situations. Pay grades are public knowledge with rates posted on the university's internal website. The annual review process is very old school but it holds managers to only rewarding a limited number of employees an "excellent" rating. All others are relegated to acceptable even if their work is superior.
You won't have to work on weekends, and there are interesting people there, but you'll also be around staff who are just phoning it in.
