The experience of helping others taught me how important it is to help myself.Above all I learned that charity is a luxury I cannot afford and also to respect my standards of life and protect my own assets.
Manager (Former Employee) – Baton Rouge, LA – September 11, 2018
It is no wonder auditors are looking to outsource departments. Employees are allowed to miss work with no questioning of their behaviors. If my love for Louisiana wasn't so great, I would say even more.

Monitora de salas de computación (Former Employee) – East Baton Rouge Parish, LA – July 25, 2018
Un día típico de trabajo: se hace apertura del salón de computación y se encienden las computadores; se asegura que las impresoras tengan papel. Se toma posición en su estación de trabajo y se encuentra preparado para asistir a los usuarios del salón. En promedio se antienden a unas seis personas por hora. Teníamos libertad de hacer tareas y estudiar cuando no teníamos que asistir a usuarios.
Conocimientos adquiridos: servicio al cliente; tecnicidad en uso de computadoras y de impresoras; manejo de situaciones de alto estrés y situaciones de riesgo a la seguridad.
Cultura laboral: siempre hubo respeto mutuo entre colegas; el administrador siempre estuvo al tanto de los monitores y de forma respetuosa nos instruía cuando necesitábamos asistencia.
La parte más difícil del trabajo: A veces era difícil la comunicación con los usuarios por cuestiones de idioma. Sin embargo, al modificar el vocabulario utilizado y modificar la forma de expresarse, se lograba superar la barrera de los idiomas.
Lo que más me gustó del trabajo: Darme cuenta de mis habilidades para resolver problemas y ver que los usuarios estaban satisfechos por el servicio.

Customer service representative III (Former Employee) – Baton Rouge, LA – July 17, 2018
Worked at LSU for 8.5 and loved it. Only drawback was the hourly pay. Benefits were great and wish I had stayed for the long term. Could be retired now. Employees were great to work with and was like a big family. I was cross trained in two different offices which were totally different mind set. There was a lot of public contact being a University which made it a fun place to work. Very upbeat. Was proud to say I worked at LSU. Exciting to be in the midst of all the football rallies, baseball games and basketball. Always something interesting at the University. Offered free education classes to employees.
Analyst (Former Employee) – New Orleans, LA – July 12, 2018
Literally Hades on earth. Levels of dysfunction beyond imagination. Unless you are one of the many crony or nepotism hires, you will likely be miserable. I had the misfortune of working for a very bitter person who was angry at the world due to their lonely and unhappy personal life. A former fast-food manager, the individual I had the misfortune of reporting to somehow obtained a technical managerial role. I was warned in the first week by 2 upper level managers that my predecessors were chased from the position by this "Manager", and they only found peace and some semblance of normalcy by transferring to other departments. I was often approached by near strangers who offered their condolences for what they knew I was surely going through, and they shared shocking anecdotes of this person's behavior that would boggle the sane mind. The staggering levels of waste and irresponsible spending should be investigated by legislative auditors. The ratio of management to worker bee was likely 2/3, with many do-nothings with bloated salaries taking 2-4 hour lunches daily. If you are interested in trying out for an episode of Hoarders, they are having casting calls on the 7th and 8th floors of their "Resource Building", the hub of dysfunction and waste. Steer clear at all costs. You have been warned.
