Pros

Pennington Center is very quite as it was built in the middle of nowhere. This might be beneficial to anyone who likes to work without much distraction.

Cons

The main downside are the people who work there. Most of the faculty knows how to use their elbows. If they don't know from the start, they will learn quickly. The place is characterized by dishonesty and intrigues. All this is enforced by massive budget problems and a boss who has learned how to play the rules in the pharmaceutical industry.

Advice to Management

Life is more than compiling grant money. You need to control those people who have no character even though they attract a lot of grant money.

    Pros

    Collaborative environment, firm work hours (no crazy nights/weekends), nice people, great benefits, a feeling of doing really good work, beautiful buildings/landscape.

    Cons

    The pay is pretty low since it's Louisiana State System, pretty non-receptive to vacation leave, not a huge amount of room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    You're doing some great work, but understand that people need to feel comfortable taking personal time off (even sick time). I personally don't take much PTO, but I saw others requesting it (and having time saved up) and getting sighs, eyerolls, etc. from management. A little disheartening. Otherwise, a fantastic company and I would definitely recommend it!


  2. "Awesome"
