I have been working at Academy of Art University part-time for more than 3 years

Pros

The flexibility of schedule and instructor teaching style. The Academy provides many resources for instructors and students, in regards to lab facility, online resources and knowledgeable staff.

Cons

Nothing in particular stands out

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Fewer students per class would give students and instructors a better experience. Class sizes tend toward 20 - 25 students. With this number, it can be difficult to give more than 3-7 minutes of critique/ feedback per student assignment, without cutting into course instruction time.

    I worked at Academy of Art University full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Exposed to a good product. You will have a different opinion on the Art World and see value in their product

    Cons

    Poor coaching. Poor morale. Disconnected management. Even though they offer free classes, no time to take them. One-on-one with managers consist of reviewing calls, and thats it. This is a call center job, period.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not rule out of fear. You have a poor sense of what would keep an employee motivated to stay.
