    Pros

    Great experience! Terrific networking opportunities! Great overall work!

    I worked at Louisiana Public Health Institute full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The Institute does amazing community work. Working there will give you the warm and fuzzies. The staff is great to work with since everyone is working toward the greater good. Benefits are great. Lots of great life/work balance.

    Cons

    Pay is lower than you will find in the public sector. You have to be willing to deal with a lot of red tape and bureaucracy due to government related funding sources. A lot of egos exist and academics who love to hear themselves talk and sometimes talk down to you. You will also likely hit the glass ceiling faster than you think.

    Advice to Management

    Improve cross departmental communication. Provide leadership from the top down and give people growth opportunities.

    I worked at Louisiana Public Health Institute part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A lot of students or even some working people around can get a chance of intern in LPHI in summer or each January, since there are lots of project there. Usually the payment is 12/hr

    Cons

    less knowledge can be learned there, mostly is doing data entry or interviewing people, you may not get touch to the design session or quality control session until you are the most outstanding person among all the interns.

    Benefits and flexible schedule policy.

    Low morale. High turnover. Very poor and ineffective management. Wastes resources because of silo mentality.

    Advice to Management

    Develop career paths to keep ambitious rather than complacent employees. Provide more training for managers. Implement 360 review process.

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Louisiana Public Health Institute (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Coming fresh out of grad school, I learned a lot, quickly about real world implementation. Many opportunities and support for professional development.

    Cons

    Grant-funded, so always working on new funding opportunities. Also good professional development, but can take a toll.
