    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Tulane University full-time (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.

    Advice to Management

    Examine the ways in which those whom you've placed in leadership positions might be completely incapable of leadership. Do thorough background checks and don't place individuals with assault or harassment convictions in leadership positions. Yes, really.
