    I worked at Louisiana Tech University

    Pros

    As a graduate student, studying/working balance was a big issue. The department leadership was always encouraging and accommodating. I learned a lot while I was there both as a student and as a GA.

    Cons

    Tech's email system was annoying. The university allowed way too many departments and groups to send out university wide announcements.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!

    For Tech to be a University, they're extremely inefficient.

    I worked at Louisiana Tech University full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There are great co-workers and bosses, they are relaxed and generally very friendly. Everyone gives the feeling of Southern hospitality.

    Cons

    The University uses outdated and inefficient methods of communicating, is not exactly environmentally friendly, there are very few opportunities for advancement and Tech lacks diversity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your employees are often over worked and underpaid. Consider the work load you are putting on employees without additional compensation. At times it can be unnecessary.

    I worked at Louisiana Tech University part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Nice weather all year long, no traffic

    Cons

    very low pay, need to pay tuition for graduate students, it is crazzy, lots of politics between professors, no summer funding, not focus on doing good research, rather they focus on writing (or faking ) grant proposal. Many professor does not come everyday to college, and some takes days to respond to email.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    focus of university should be success of every student not politics
