    I worked at LSU full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good if you are a student because you get to learn a lot from classes and teachers. Most of them are very approachable, kind, ad helpful.

    Cons

    Not all the information is clear and open. The internal process for some sections is super slow and sluggish. Most of the time you have to be the spearhead to push things to happen.

    Advice to Management

    Efficiency and open information

    I worked at LSU full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Free tuition, if the department is good you learn a lot about the field you're studying in.

    Cons

    Very long hours, not a lot of pay. You get a tuition waiver if you're a full-time TA/RA, but are still required to pay fees (~1500) per semester as of Dec 2014. They give you ~1200 a month, so loans are probably required unless you're very austere with money.
