    Pros

    A joy to deal with the students and work on projects for the Executive Director.

    Not having enough academic advisors to help the students in a timely manager because many left to pursue other careers.

    Always listen to the employees with a positive attitude in ways to help better the job.

    Pros

    Faculty and staff are great to work with. A lot of flexibility. Trusted with responsibilities up front.

    Cons

    Phd students are still just regarded as students to most people. Treated as students to help with research and not as coworkers

    Pros

    Leann is an incredible boss and treats all her staff like family. A great environment to work.

    Cons

    Sometimes foot traffic gets a little slow leaving with not much to do. This is simply due to lack of knowledge within the community about the museum.

    Advice to Management

    Management on the 3rd floor could have more open discussions with downstairs staff on how to bring more people into the museum.

  7. Perfect job for a student.

    Pros

    I don't have to drive to work, I can just walk there. Also, I'm able to pick my own hours and change my schedule when necessary.

    Cons

    The only con I can think of is that raises rarely come, but the point of a student worker job is not to move up but just to have a job that's convenient.

    Advice to Management

    Offer more opportunities for student to get real world experience on the job. Often times student worker jobs consist mostly of a student doing homework until they're needed for a task.

    Pros

    Great staff and support structure in place. Passionate faculty who really care about education and students.

    Cons

    The State of Louisiana has cut funding for LSU for the past few years, so the University has been forced to lower salaries.

    Advice to Management

    Keep making LSU a great place to learn and work.

    Pros

    People are nice and so is the food in the area. The campus is beautiful and overall LSU football culture is great.

    Cons

    Traffic is the worst part driving around Baton Rouge, I think. And the crime rate in the city and around campus is what makes us a little more concerned.

    Advice to Management

    Assistantships to graduate students need to be increased and health insurance should be free of charge.

  11. Working at one of the LSU departments, Continuing Education has been very pleasant like the building name, Pleasant Hall

    Pros

    The manager and the colleagues are very helpful and they will let you learn on the job.

    Cons

    Some of the colleagues are technologically challenged to some extent, which makes it harder to make them understand.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Continuing Education is one of the most revenue making departments at LSU.
