    Pros

    Everything about LSUHSC was a above average. The benefits are great and cost is low due to company size and being a state entity.

    Cons

    Very few cons as it comes down to which principal investigator you work for. Before deciding to accept a job in certain departments, make sure you determine how many of hours you are expected to work because some do require uncompensated work in a salary-based position. I suggest getting in writing and do accept verbal exchanges otherwise you would have no proof with Human Resources if you decide to file a complaint.

    Advice to Management

    None except there are some Department PIs who may not adhere to commonly accepted work practices.

    Pros

    Getting to help people become employed.

    Cons

    Very catty; the H.R. department is full of backstabbing, two faced liars. It's run by a bunch of women and a gew men who act like women. They are jealous hearted and hate to see two people being friends and getting along. It is a good thing that they are not in charge of the ACTUAL hiring and can only make suggestuons regarding the hire. The actual hiring is done by the individual department. The people in H.R. are the most miserable bunch of people I've ever encountered and they work hard at being messy. I hated my time with those bunch of "educated" losers.

    Advice to Management

    Review the number of complaints about the people working in H.R....you will never have good people working there if you have those losers in place. Fire everybody and start over.

    Pros

    Nice, friendly people. Opportunities for research, collaboration. Downtown-New Orleans area.

    Cons

    Beware: Since I have started working here, there have always been budget cut issues. Some years were worse than the others. We have not received any salary raise for 4+ years. Then, this January they gave a little raise, but immediately after that a state budget cut crisis followed. Unless you are a researcher with full funding from NIH, you are not safe here. Even the tenured faculty was scared that they may lose their jobs. Now everything is in control but I am sure another state budget cut crisis is on its way.

  5. Exhilarating and them very disappointing due to lack of communication

    I worked at LSU Health New Orleans full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I started working immediately in the aftermath of Katrina and found the job very exhilarating. I managed a grant program working in the schools throughout the metropolitan area doing assessments of children impacted by the storm. Later I was assigned to work collaboratively with the state and participated in the writing of several grants. Initially I felt the communication and camaraderie was exceptional and I was considered to be one of the hardest workers taking on any extra duties needed to get the job done. I worked collaboratively with many consultants whom I am still in connection with. They always felt I was exceptional in my organizational, clinical and program management skills and openly expressed they're satisfaction frequently

    Cons

    The culture of the department initially appeared to be one of welcoming and support. Every evaluation I received was rated as exceptional. Although as time went by I began noticing I was being excluded from meetings and conversations but, was never reprimanded for anything by my supervisor or the Department Chair. I unexpectedly received a letter informing me that my contract was not being renewed with the explanation being that there was no funding. At that time I was in the middle or working on a grant that would provide that funding.

    Advice to Management

    The office culture is one of superior support until you don't agree with upper management. Nothing is ever said about it but, you are slowly being excluded and given fewer and fewer responsibilities and then was unexpectedly terminated without having ever had a discussion regarding whatever dissatisfaction I caused. The management duo very poorly communicates what they are unhappy about and slowly pushes you out. To be fair it is imperative that ongoing lines of communication be maintained with faculty making them aware of any issues that are going on.

    Pros

    Working in the medical and educational industries allows for employment stability. The benefits offered are great in comparison to other large corporations. We are given the holidays off and the paid leave program allows for personal and sick time without infringing on your pay.

    Cons

    The starting salaries are low for most qualified applicants. The hiring process can take some time.

    Advice to Management

    The red tape can be exhausting and time consuming. Although necessary at times, there has to be a more efficient way to handle certain business forums.


  8. Professional environment overall, but lack of support from State "powers that be".

    Pros

    Professional work environment, meaningful healthcare/education mission that impacts citizens of the state and nation; good employee benefits; large group of quality employees in workplace

    Cons

    State budget constraints and lack of consistent salary increases were difficult; lack of clearly communicated mission and vision from senior management; schools operated fairly independently with little sense of one LSUHSC

    Advice to Management

    Better communicate the mission and vision from the top down; Brand really suffers and needs help - local community constantly confuses the health sciences center and former charity hospital.


  9. Challenging, productive

    Pros

    Had been a civil service job. Friendly employees. Good recovery from Katrina in 2005, although the landmark hospital, Charity, never reopened

    Cons

    No longer civil service, has been privatized. Management did not listen to underlings. They always "knew better" or did not need the feedback or information. Change was very slow.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. They are the ones on the battlefront, which is often ignored, especially in planning stages.

    Pros

    Benefits can not be beat. The atmosphere is enjoyable. Great job to balance family and work.

    Cons

    Appears to be a lot of down time between case studies. Not enough of a challenging role. There is not any growth within the position.
