      Business Outlook

      Pros

      If you put in the work, you'll be an expert public speaker Strong overall development of soft skills through working with diverse stakeholders Education benefit - MBA is next to free (~$5000 in fees when all is said and done) Competitive pay, compared to other admissions offices; you can live comfortably as a single young person in New Orleans on this salary Travel during the fall and spring to your territories; you get to see a lot of the country and build relationships with counselors, students, and their families Earning airline and hotel points Being part of a respected university on an upward trajectory; the Tulane name holds more and more weight as time goes on...helpful when networking

      Cons

      Toxic office culture - managers 1) are bullies or 2) turn a blind eye to harassment and bickering Loud, negative voices get rewarded with upward mobility Lots of weekend events, during which you're micromanaged ruthlessly by a cadre of assistant directors

      Top-rated employer in New Orleans with good reason

      Pros

      Pay is fair to very good, depending on your unit. Benefits and perks are top notch; sometimes people accept the tradeoff of lower pay just for them. It's hard to generalize about the entire campus, but I've never dealt with anyone internally who's grossly incompetent.

      Cons

      Parking is expensive and scarce. HR bureaucracy can be overwhelming. Undergrads don't seem to understand they live in a campus bubble.

      Pros

      The people, excluding leadership. Are fantastic. The staff and faculty are the best part of the University.

      Cons

      Poor leadership, top down leadership while the leadership promotes innovation. In the are I worked in, senior leadership was borderline incompetent.
