    I have been working at University of New Orleans full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Entry level position, salary, work from home opportunities, team environment, collaborative environment, opportunities to learn and train with subject matter experts

    Cons

    POA workers are treated differently. It does not come with retirement benefits, no vacation or sick leave, The UNO team has lots of micromanagers, the project is very disorganized, the efficiency and effectiveness in management is a money waster, lack of proper training, terrible onboarding process, important details are left out prior to being hired

    Advice to Management

    Improve the training for managers, supervisors, and team leads. Improve the company culture. The company culture and morale is low. Find ways to make the employees comfortable and competent in their roles.
