    I worked at Northwestern State University (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly people ... historic and beautiful campus and surrounding town ... significant responsibility in most roles due to smaller staff sizes.

    Cons

    Everyone seems to be on their way out or interested in finding their way out ... "it's always been done this way" mentality in a lot of staffers you encounter ... budget shortfall provides little room for financial growth regardless of achievement ... festivals/celebrations are great when they are going on but otherwise, there is very little activities around town on an average day.

    Advice to Management

    Keep fighting the good fight against the corrupt political establishment in Baton Rouge.

    Pros

    Understanding of your balance to work and study towards your master's degree.

    Low pay, some G.A's can have any easy position that requires little work and others have a huge amount of duties for their assistantship

    I worked at Northwestern State University part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great Personable environment that works around student's Class schedules. It is a great starter position for someone who needs a job. You work closely with professors in your department, so you can learn more about your field through them.

    Cons

    The technology available to students needs to be upgraded and software that students use needs to be more compatible with what they will use in the real job market.

    Advice to Management

    Update professors on what the field is like now in various careers and make sure that students know how to use the tools that they will need in the future job market.

    Not a hard job but a fun job. Very relaxed
