    I worked at University of New Orleans part-time

    Pros

    The full-time staff in International Education is committed, loving, generous, and hard-working. A truly great group of people that feels like a family. Sadly, public education in Louisiana is screwed, and there is always a feeling of uncertainty surrounding -- as such, GAships were cut pretty harshly in 2015, to my understanding. Was never an "easy" job, but it was satisfying to work with such a diverse student body.

    Cons

    Louisiana public education -- austerity. Peter Fos was a slippery politician trying to run the place like a business (and failing, because education is not compatible with profit-making) and I'm glad he's gone.
