Friendly faces, busy workplace
Graphic Designer (Current Employee), Baton Rouge, LAApril 25, 2014
My day at LSU worked around my class schedule so hours were flexible. I was able to use my talents as a designer to promote the Center for Academic Success. I publicized student and faculty events, tutoring sessions and workshops. As I got my Masters in graphic design I was able to continue my career and better my education.

Ok, but not great
Unclassified Staff Member (Current Employee), Baton Rouge, LAApril 19, 2014
LSU faces many challenges: legislative budgets, institutional reorganization, employee disgruntlement, etc.

LSU has the potential to be an ideal workplace, but organizational disgruntlement often overshadows the positives. Faculty, staff, and students sometimes behave as entitled two year-olds, unable to compromise and achieve a satisfying result for – more... all involved. The benefits are good, especially the health insurance, but the legislatively mandated retirement contributions skew too heavily in the favor of the organization, rather than the personnel. – less

Overall acceptable workplace
Office Assistant (Former Employee), Baton Rouge, LAMarch 25, 2014
Pros: flexible scheduling
Cons: alone, boring
I spent most of my time alone at the front of the store. There was always something to do, though. If there were no customers there was generally stocking, cleaning, or stickers to pull. It was a good starter job.

Not much to say, I was a graduate student
Research Assistant (Current Employee), Baton Rouge, LA and St. Gabriel, LANovember 5, 2013
Pros: i earned my phd
Cons: barely a livable wage
I had to balance classes, research and a second job. Growing bacterial cultures to produce butanol required periodic sampling. Time management was essential when it came to the inoculation schedule, sampling, classes and meeting personal training clients (for my second job). I had to drive to the lab at all hours of the day and night, weekends and holidays – more... as the sampling schedule required.

I learned how to use the HPLC and GC.

It was typical graduate research, meaning unsteady and long hours and little pay – less
