    Pros

    Most of the individuals that you work with at LSU ITS are passionate and enjoy their work. The ones that truly value the educational system, the students, and the faculty are the easiest to work with, and your encounters with them are the most rewarding. Those that view customer service as a priority drive the atmosphere.

    Cons

    There are some employees who interpret their position as a "state worker" to mean that they must only do the bare minimum to "keep the wheels turning." While these people do not stifle progress, they are doing a disservice to themselves and their co-workers.

    Pros

    Friendly, intelligent faculty. They want you to succeed, and will help you along the way.

    Cons

    The pay is laughably low. Additionally, LSU is a victim of funding cuts and political pressure.

    Advice to Management

    Many would like to see more tenure track positions and job security for younger/newer faculty members. There needs to be a stronger stance against the way money is allocated in the LSU system. LSU needs to remind itself that it is an institution for education and research, not a business or athletic team.
