    I worked at University of New Orleans full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I absolutely loved working here (for 9 years) and only left because I moved and had a baby. The community is engaging and supportive and makes every day worthwhile. It's more like a family than a workplace. UNO has had it's ups and downs, but is very resilient and continues to grow and evolve.

    Cons

    State budget cuts make it nearly impossible to get a raise.

    I worked at University of New Orleans part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    UNO is a diverse campus with students from all over the world. Culturally, it is accepting of all ages and ethnicities. The environment is perfect for one who enjoys expanding their knowledge and understanding of others. Also, for the most part, employees are hard-working and dedicated. They love the University and its students. They are a pleasure to work with.

    Cons

    The State of Louisiana is one of the worst when it comes to funding education. UNO, like every state college and university, suffers from staffing cutbacks. The motto has become "do more with less." That includes less pay. Employees haven't received raises in nearly ten years, despite taking on ever-increasing workloads.
