    I have been working at Tulane University full-time

    Pros

    Tulane is a vibrant intellectual community in one of the best cities in the world. The staff, faculty, and students all seem incredibly motivated. If you're a parent, working at Tulane gives you an advantage when it comes to getting your kid into a preferred school in the New Orleans school system.

    Cons

    Compensation is poor compared to peer universities and any process involving HR is murky at best. There also isn't much support for staff professional development.

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

    Pros

    The benefits aren't bad getting paid on the university schedule.

    Cons

    Dead end there's a lot of favoritism and lack of diversity. If you aren't a certain race then you are not accepted.

    Advice to Management

    We need managers who care about employees and how they are treated.

    It's a very flexible and understanding job in terms of allowing time for school work and travel if you need it.

    There's a lot of physical labor for games but that's to be expected I guess

    Advice to Management

    None

    I worked at Tulane University part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Tulane is a great university where I have had the unique opportunity to cultivate my knowledge of the field of energy.

    Cons

    It's quite hot in New Orleans, so on the average summer day I tend to have to bring two or three changes of clothes in my school bag to prevent excessive pit stains.

    Advice to Management

    I think that management should continue to do what they are doing. My only advice would be to address the humid weather and maybe give Mother Nature some sort of ultimatum letting her know she needs to cut it out.

  8. "Student Aide"

    Pros

    Stipend is higher than lot and it’s a mid sized university

    Cons

    Tulane has only a few programs so they could expand to more.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing a good job!

    Pros

    It is in New Orleans. They have a very unique commencement experience as a result of area culture.

    Cons

    HR is incompetent. A lot of immoral if not illegal activity occurring in departments as a result. Lacks diversity across the board.
