    I have been working at Tulane University full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Convenient location, beautiful campus, many resources and restaurants within walking distance. My coworkers and department are lovely, and I feel like a valued member of the staff. Great benefits, including paid parental leave and tuition waiver for yourself and dependents. Generally pleasant culture. Opportunity for lateral moves among different departments once you're here.

    Cons

    The parking situation is atrocious. I work at the front of campus, so I park in Cowen Circle. I have to pay hundreds of dollars (through pay deduction) for my parking pass. However, it's more like a "hunting permit." You have the pass, but you aren't actually guaranteed to find a spot, especially if you're looking around the front of campus. Spots in Cowen are often reserved with cones for "special events," and I have actually been called by parking services to move my vehicle, as they claimed there was a cone there but there wasn't. You either pay hundreds to MAYBE find a spot to park, or you don't pay and you have to walk miles to get to your office. I have also heard that some departments at Tulane do not pay a living wage, or do not pay what employees deserve. I have heard of racial discrimination as well. These are not my own experiences, but I recognize that others have experienced this. As I said, your experience really varies depending on where you work.

    Advice to Management

    To my own management, I'd say to try to be more positive. Our meetings sometimes feel quite bleak. We know enrollment is down, but we are all trying our best to balance both revenue AND the student's best interests. To the school as a whole, you have a pretty isolating reputation as being very white, very rich, and very exclusive. This is one of the most diverse cities in the nation, and there is definitely more that could be done to attract and keep students and employees from all backgrounds.
