    I have been working at Tulane University full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Benefits are ok; paid holidays, sick & vacation time, health insurance (recently increased), dental discount, vision, contributes 8% of annual salary towards retirement (after 2years of employment...), but does not have a company matching program (employees can still contribute) FSA, life insurance, etc. Tuition waiver for two classes or six credit hours per semester which ever is equal or less than what the cap is. Some discounts on certain things campus wide; including laptop repair (which used to be free; students operate on it, but they don't take good care of it and could hardly ever figure out the problem), huge discount on software such as Microsoft Office. Other little perks here and there. One can browse the website for information. Can be a fun environment at times and there are always exciting events throughout the semester, but when the students are gone everything stops and the campus is pretty much empty.

    Cons

    In some departments there are incompetent and insensitive directors, managers & supervisors. they treat their employees like garbage and when they get upset or when they do not like you they begin to target you by harassing and micro-managing you & they are quick to tell you if you don't like it go work somewhere else. Majority of the employees are unhappy and are alway extremely stressed out. Its very oppressing, there's too much bureaucracy and favoritism. Hourly employees are overworked, underpaid and have no time for family and friends. You must work overtime every time they want you to and when you can not then your job is at risk.
    Managers gives evaluations that are very bias because if you are someone that does your job and stand up to the managers about their bullying of employees then they give you a bad review which goes to WFMO and you won't get a raise. The university makes you fill out an conflict-of-interest every year - not too bad except they hardly want you to do anything else. They want to own your time and no other work, not even your own company can have priority. Handbook says that nepotism is not allowed, however there is plenty of nepotism. Whenever you bring up an issue or even a suggestion it is dismissed, causes management to be offended, or they will patronage you like they care, but never take steps to make things better. Hopefully, employees will someday stand up against such horrible conditions and rise to flip the hierarchy system around.

    Please excuse any errors, I am typing from my iPad!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please pay attention to what is going on. You all should hold your directors and managers accountable and ensure that your employees are being treated legally and fair. Please change the bureaucracy that is in place, you all care so much to help promote human rights for others, but not your own employees. I would suggest sending managers through extensive training on law, policies and how to treat students, customers, and employees. There is a whole lot of things that needs to change and it takes time, but listening is the first step to progress. . .
