    I worked at LSU as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Free room
    Free food
    Decent pay
    Made lots of friends

    Cons

    The red tape and fluffy protocol and projects from the higher-ups was a continual thorn in my side. This job greatly interfered with my schoolwork and freedom of life.

    Advice to Management

    Cut the crap, make socials and programs bigger and better, but less frequent. The 3-4 programs a week turned residents off from attending. Stop with the touchy-feely "connections," and PC talk. I made great connections with my residents by doing my job to the best of my ability, and by not giving preferential treatment to people ResLife deemed special because they had it tough: being gay, or black, or another minority type. Having someone tell me I am a victim in no way makes me a better person. I did the job for two years, and gained 50 pounds. The residents were easier to deal with, even when causing trouble, than certain ResLife authorities were anytime.


  2. "Good"

    Pros

    Many connections easily made and many different departments to possibly have opportunities for future employment. Good football and baseball teams also.

    Cons

    Very conservative and political university. Upper administration not very competent when it comes to the budget, and the state is the same.

    Advice to Management

    Embrace the federal grants you currently have and you are continued to be offered, instead of working against them. They do bring in millions every year after all.
