    I have been working at Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Friendly people, especially the support staff. There are many people at LSUHSC-S that perform their jobs well, thereby making other people's jobs easier. Compared to other cities and places of employment, parking and traffic are not bad at all. Great educational programs.

    Cons

    The current state of the LSU system is concerning. State budget cuts to higher education may hit LSUHSC-S hard. Hopefully, these financial issues will be addressed in upcoming legislative sessions. Also, many higher positions within the graduate school are currently held by people who have been in those positions for decades and are less willing to change the status quo to better prepare students for careers.

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to attract younger faculty and keep them after they've received grants/tenure. They are the future of this research facility.

    Pros

    Diversity, small size departments so interactions are easier, classes are not large numbers so interactions with instructors are easier

    I have been working at Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Generous leave policy, solid benefits package, comfortable, attractive, centrally located facility with ample parking.

    Cons

    Difficult to achieve professional goals via promotion; "old guard" firmly in place; not particularly women or family-friendly.

    Advice to Management

    Do more to retain administrative and faculty talent instead of letting them leave for greener pastures. Invest in your greatest (human) resource.

    I have been working at Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I enjoy what I do and I enjoy the people I work with. You already have parking if heading to the Superdome or the Arena

    Cons

    Due to the budget cuts in the state, no raises in 5 years. We recently got a small raise, but no where near enough to put most of us where we should be.

    Advice to Management

    Try to cut something to pay employees more.
