Best education in the Southern United States

Research Assistant (Current Employee)
New Orleans, LA

I have been working at Tulane University full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGreat Community, Freedom in Work, Well Funded, Strong Leadership that attracts the best, and the most unique city in the country.

ConsPoor administration logistics. Paperwork is slow and tedious due to poor service and information.

Advice to Senior ManagementStreamline the paper mills by training the student workers. Its amazing how long it takes documents to go through such a small system, that's not counting the number of times things are simply lost in transit.

Tulane University is part of New Orleans

Director (Former Employee)
New Orleans, LA

I worked at Tulane University full-time for more than 5 years

ProsLargest employer in New Orleans, Good atmosphere, most staff members are very helpful, usually given space/time to do your work how you want to do it, good benefits. There is a new sense of energy and important things happening there since hurricane Katrina.

ConsSome employees have their victims "dead bodies" lining their path to success. Tulane is so large, and a lot of administrators who have their own ideas (ego?) on what is needed. Parking is always difficult and campus floods in rain storms. Have to work a lot of hours (day, evenings, and weekends)

Advice to Senior ManagementThose who review applications in HR should have an understanding of the position and should consider looking at those who are a cookie cutter version of the job description.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
