Great organization. No, really!

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
Recommends
No opinion of CEO

Pros

Collaborative environment, firm work hours (no crazy nights/weekends), nice people, great benefits, a feeling of doing really good work, beautiful buildings/landscape.

Cons

The pay is pretty low since it's Louisiana State System, pretty non-receptive to vacation leave, not a huge amount of room for advancement.

Advice to Management

You're doing some great work, but understand that people need to feel comfortable taking personal time off (even sick time). I personally don't take much PTO, but I saw others requesting it (and having time saved up) and getting sighs, eyerolls, etc. from management. A little disheartening. Otherwise, a fantastic company and I would definitely recommend it!

    great benefits, usually a positive atmosphere to work in, large facility, employee wellness program, site of the Thursday farmer's market

    Cons

    low pay grade due to state funding, currently undergoing reorganization, there are a lot of important background issues that are not made known to the employees, recent layoffs.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Pennington Biomedical Research Center full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Friendly environment, low stress, great hours, decent benefits.

    Cons

    Everything grant funded which runs out, eventually. Starting salary is not competitive, which would be ok as long there was room for growth. No raises, no promotions, benefits decent but a little expensive.

    Advice to Management

    Hard-working, loyal staff should be able to be rewarded with raises and promotions.
