    Pros

    Great experience working with Professors in my major. I truly feel that I am getting qualified to go directly into any job after graduating

    Cons

    It is not often that I get paid a month late. Payroll only works once a month and if the forms are turned in late, the pay for that month gets push back a month.

    Advice to Management

    Getting paid twice a month and submit hours online (instead of only once a month)


  7. Easy to graduate but not many top students on Campus

    Pros

    The city is 2014 Happiest Place in the US. The city has one of the lowest rates of unemployment in 2013. The area has great food, great music, and beautiful bayous.

    Cons

    The culture of the community, area, and government leadership doesn't support education; instead raiding education funds to divert to other interests. This leaves the University talent rich and incentive poor. It is difficult to recruit new talent and they are bleeding the existing talent.

    Advice to Management

    In this troubling economy and with the lack of support for education, little perks may make the difference. Such free parking for employees, ticket prices for UL athletic events that are similar to students, flexible guidelines for summer reimbursement related to class size depending on department.
