    Pros

    Hands-on work, Being able to work and go to school. Also, you get to know the professor that you work with and they are often able to help you with other school related issues.

    Cons

    Getting paid on time can be a problem. They also only pay minimum wage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Getting paid through direct deposit is great, but it would help out if we could get paid more than once a month (especially when sometimes we have to wait two month to get paid.

    Pros

    We are the Ragin Cajuns. The athletic teams are improving. Coffee shop in the library and bookstore. Online learning is starting to take off.

    Cons

    Computer system is slowly crawling out of the dark ages. Management takes too long on decisions and keeps hiring the wrong people, which causes problems for everyone else. Salaries have been frozen for over 5 years, unless your division head is smart enough to restructure and give out new titles to get a pay raise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find some money for pay raises. Get VP for finances to move faster. Consider letting employees use sick time for time off with sick kids. encourage dinosaur professors to retire to improve the commitment to online teaching/learning.
