    I worked at Tulane University part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good university with dynamic administrative structure, opportunities seem to be available for advancement

    Cons

    Poor leadership, in several departments it seems to be a revolving door, and to the contrary of the pros listed above, in most administrative jobs at the university there is no movement. The people with power at the University do give off the old boys club vibe.
