I have been at Duke for 6 years and just got a great job offer at UNC Hospital. When Duke found out I was looking to leave, they offered me a promotion. UNC is offering a higher position and higher pay. But is it worth Leaving Duke for? How do the benefits compare? Help!

I also work for Duke. A few years back I was offered a job at UNC - seemed like a great place to work. Pay was comparable, good benefits. The parking was atrocious at UNC. I know it's not much better at Duke but part of my negotiations included a parking pass in one of the garages by the hospital.

Not sure what you do, but as a salaried employee, Duke's 403B plan is tough to beat. It was the 403b and parking that drove my decision.

Best of luck in whatever you decide.

Thanks for your response! Parking was a major factor for me as well, I would be working off-campus at UNC so parking would not be an issue. It is more of the benefits I'm comparing at this point. I thought UNC has a 403B as well?

Aside from the parking, based on benefits alone, which is the better hospital to work at?

IMO as a former 35 yr Dook employee, Dook's benefits as a rich private institution easily trump the state's benefit program.

How are the medical insurance plans? Do all of the plans have high deductibles and out-of-pocket costs prior to insurance kicking in, and then once it does kick in, still only cover a percentage....or does either medical center offer a truly excellent plan that covers the majority of costs? Either offer tuition benefits for kids of employees?

Well all the medical and insurance seems comparable. I am more interested in knowing the differences in 403B plans

I just read this quickly and Duke's plan looks far superior. They contribute to salaried employees plan as outlined below:
