    Current Employee - IT Analyst II in Baton Rouge, LA
    Current Employee - IT Analyst II in Baton Rouge, LA

    I have been working at LSU full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits (but expensive) and very flexible with schedule, especially if you take classes and work at the same time.

    Cons

    Salary leaves something to be desired. The benefits offer great coverage, but are not included in the salary, so you will have to plan on 1/5 of your take-home going toward your benefits (elections notwithstanding)

    Advice to Management

    I don't really have a whole lot to say here, other than LSU professional workers are some of the university's greatest resources. If just 5% of the athletics budget were absorbed to compensate employees properly, every staff member at LSU would get a 10-15% raise (meaning a living wage for some).
