    I worked at Tulane University full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The atmosphere is amazing, encouraging and inspiring. Working there gave me the deepest joy. As a single parent with many talents, I found myself proactively evolving. I wish I could resume my life at the illustrious university soon.

    Cons

    Employee bullying should be harshly addressed. It is unprofessional and unprofessional to sabotage an employees job just because they refuse to entertain behaviors of others that soley demoralize the moral standards on which Tulane University was built.

    Advice to Management

    Keep personal indiscretions out of the work place at all levels of administration. When aware, take tge necessary steps to address the situation farley with all parties involved.

    I have been working at Tulane University part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Everyone I've dealt with at Tulane has been cordial and easy-going. Not too much pressure. Students are generally smart, most are sufficiently motivated

    Cons

    This campus began in the mid-1800s and the buildings and parking reflect that. The business school is creating a new addition now, but parking will remain challenging. The amount of crime in the area is troubling.

    Advice to Management

    None, really. The tone comes from the top (office of the president) and he seems to listen mostly to alumni.
