    I worked at Louisiana Tech University

    Pros

    As a graduate student, studying/working balance was a big issue. The department leadership was always encouraging and accommodating. I learned a lot while I was there both as a student and as a GA.

    Cons

    Tech's email system was annoying. The university allowed way too many departments and groups to send out university wide announcements.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!

    Not really any cons besides when there is nothing to do and you're just waiting around for something to happen.
    Can get boring when sports are out of season, and busy when basketball season is going.

    Tech is a great public university located in quaint Ruston, Louisiana. My experience as a worker has been wonderful. I have learned many organizational skills that will help me in my future ventures.

    Cons

    The pay for an assistantship is pretty limited but they are unable to pay more due to the vast amount of assistants employed.
