    I have been working at Tulane University for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Flexible schedule. As a graduate student, your time is mostly your own. The working schedule for classes is fairly light, that is, an instructor has a lot of control over how to the material will be delivered. New changes, have brought out a better working structure and culture. Improvement is slow, but it is happening. Provided with necessary resources to teach a class, but in math that's not difficult.

    Cons

    Terrible communication. Lead instructors do not have a good vision for a semester's plan, even if they have been doing this for years. Many senior professors are stagnant, and no longer providing exciting classroom experiences; simultaneously not active in research. This makes Tulane the archetype of the professor collecting a paycheck. Rarely does the university have standardization, and some professors simply ignore it because they are tenured, and can take actions at their whim.

    I worked at Tulane University full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Interesting, diverse environment, great libraries, funding for alternative projects

    Cons

    Tulane is painfully hierarchical in its nature and does everything to protect those who hold prestigious roles, even when those individuals debase and assault the people they are supposed to lead. Tulane is highly exploitative, has poor benefits and offers little room for advancement.
