    I worked at Tulane University full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Salary is competitive. Most classes are taught well. Campus is pretty. Great city to have fun in. Other graduate students are supportive.

    Cons

    Most faculty care nothing for their students and treat them with disrespect. The undergrads are often rich, entitled kids that just want to party and then complain and cause problems when they don't get A's. In addition, the staff are often an obstacle to productivity....on this note, facilities services is the worst.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your graduate students with respect. They are underpaid, overworked, and their careers depend on the whims of their advisers. The staff should actually provide helpful, friendly, and speedy customer service instead of the alternative.
