  1. Library Digital Production Assistant

    I worked at Tulane University part-time

    Pros

    Great manager and flexible hours;

    Cons

    The office was located in the corner of the Jones Hall Library, not Howard Tilton, so it gets awfully quiet and lonely.

    I have been working at Tulane University full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great researchers to learn from/collaborate with and friendly people in my department. There are more & more opportunities for professional development as well. Cultural opportunities are fabulous in New Orleans of course!

    Cons

    Expectations for graduate students were inconsistent when I began there. TA stipends haven't increased in the past 7 years (maybe more) and benefits are limited. There is virtually no support for statistical analysis help. Some teaching and research positions take advantage of graduate students.

    Advice to Management

    We have expressed many of our concerns to the department, and to their credit they responded by addressing several of these concerns that were within their abilities.

    Pros

    Great location, great people to work with. Students are bright and motivated. Most departments are very easy to work with in terms of scheduling, etc.

    Cons

    Administration is unorganized and does not cooperate between departments well. Good intentions from the top, but mid-level management is unorganized and often made up of people who don't seem to care.
