    I have been working at Tulane University full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits include 2 weeks of vacation in your first year, 3 weeks for years 2-10 and 4 weeks after your 10th year. Additionally, you accrue sick time and Tulane closes for many holidays and between Christmas Eve & New Year's Day for Winter Break. Tulane contributes to a retirement account after your 2nd year and you don't even have to match to earn it (of course, it's smart if you do.) They have also instituted paid maternity leave (4 weeks, but it's a start.) Pay is around the national average.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy can become tiresome.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to offer these benefits to retain employees. Consider cost of living pay increases to match rising cost of living in New Orleans.
