    Loyola offers an excellent benefits package with good medical insurance, dental, eye care and a generous 403b retirement plan after you have been with the company for one year. Tuition remission for dependents, spouse, and yourself are available as well.

    unresponsive administration, low salary, no raises

    Advice to Management

    If you can't pay better, work on raising morale by offering better perks and showing appreciation in other ways, not the least of which is simply saying "thank you" for working through the hard times.

    I worked at Loyola University New Orleans part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - flexible scheduling
    - warm, happy, intelligent management/coworkers
    - great resume builder
    - free university events/plays/concerts/etc.
    - gets you comfy answering phones/selling tickets

    Cons

    - not for people with poor attitudes, those who don't genuinely enjoy interacting with and helping others, or those who want to sit around--you're GOING to work.

    Advice to Management

    Set clear standards for student employees (I.e., dress code for ushering, proper patron etiquette, etc.) so that everyone is on the same page and makes the university look good!

    I have been working at Loyola University New Orleans full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They have a faculty/staff dining room that you can eat in and you can eat in the student dining hall (not for free though). Also, they will pay up to a certain amount for you to earn 1 degree while you work there. Your spouse and children can go for free as well (if the University makes it).

    Cons

    Loyno lacks in leadership. The "leadership" there does not want to make necessary and executive decisions that will benefit the university. They have hired an outside agency to "fix" the financial problems the university is having. The financial situation is worse than they make it seem and I don't forsee this school operating beyond the next 5-10 years. Leaders refuse to accept responsiblity for their mistakes and they do no like to be "called out" when others below them bring up the problems. They do not properly train you in your position but they expect everything to be right the first time they do it.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees with more respect. Be more open and honest and listen to what we have to say. Invest more money into the marketing department.
