    I have been working at LSU Health New Orleans full-time

    Pros

    After the recent reorganization, the culture has drastically shifted in the direction of innovation. Huge breath of fresh air to an organization that needed it. The executive team is all been in place for about a year, and seem to all be on the same page. Newer, younger staff have also helped to bring fresh perspective.

    Cons

    If your don't have an open mind, it will be hard to keep up.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the new, creative culture, and new people will beat the doors down to work here.

    I have been working at LSU Health New Orleans full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    As a research associate, my work experience is mostly dependent upon the professor I work for. With that, my general experience with LSUHSC is also good. As a state entity, the hiring process at LSUHSC is very long (1-2 months) because your application has to be routed to a few different people and then signed off on it. The benefits are pretty good, with many different health insurance options that give the employee access to different physician networks in New Orleans. Everyone I work with (in the School of Public Health) is friendly and nice. Because I'm in an academic position, everyone I work with wants me to succeed professionally and are willing to help in any way they can. LSU offers tuition waivers for employees, so the opportunity for gaining more education and resulting promotions/job opportunities is great.

    Cons

    Much like other academic institutions, getting anything done is a process. IRBs, grant applications, etc. If the person needed to sign off on something is on vacation or at a conference, the process comes to a halt until they return. The business managers (who most money related things are relayed through) can sometimes act as if you are making their job harder. Undoubtedly, they do have a very complicated job, managing many grants and academic funding, but you are only asking them to do their job.

    Advice to Management

    Create hard deadlines and allow multiple people to have the same responsibilities so as to not hold up processes. Encouraging more face to face interactions would also be beneficial for employees as well.

  3. "Great benefits but work atmosphere is nowhere near like it used to be with the previous admin/HR team."

    I have been working at LSU Health New Orleans part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You can go to school when you have classes and come to work when you are free. You can do your homework at work when you have free time.

    Cons

    The pay is not great at $11.40/hr. There is a lot of grunt work to be done but its all very easy.

    Advice to Management

    Buy new equipment for the student workers. The laptops are outdated and run extremely slow. It would be nice to have access to more programs on the computers like CAD and Solidworks in the engineering room.
