    Great people

    Resident Assistant (Former Employee)

    ProsI loved being an RA. Best job I've ever had. The people are wonderful, it's a creative environment, and I learned a lot. I can't speak to it just as a place of employment since I was also a student, and an RA is kind of an unusual position to review since it means that where you work is also where you live but...

    ConsFor a communications school, Emerson has some pretty poor internal communication. We communicated well in OHRL, but the institution as a whole could use some work.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Marketing COmm Major

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsI love everything about Emerson! I couldn't imagine going anywhere else!! So many great connections to be made and networking.

    ConsChanging majors is hard. Not the best financial aid.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGo here only if you're sure that communications is what you want to get into.

    An abundance of opportunities to learn - more outside than in the classroom

    Student (Former Employee) Boston, MA

    ProsA student will discover interest and skills in an area they had no idea they liked or existed.
    Boston is truly you campus while at Emerson. It's the most amazing experience.
    Students learn from both professors and each other.
    As an alumni people often describe you being so good because "she went to emerson"

    ConsSo much is learned outside the classroom that grades are sometimes weaker and that doesn't translate well for grad school.

    Advice to Senior Managementkeep cross pollinating departments. Let marketing kids market TV shows and films, and have theatre kids audition for films. Avoid a niche.

    Great place for hands-on faculty

    Associate Professor (Current Employee) Boston, MA

    ProsHigh level of professional and career individuals who went on to become faculty afterwards. College is well-equipped with film, video, production, post, studios and audio equipment. Performing Arts program has outstanding performance spaces.

    ConsPolitics play a role in many things as they do in most of academia. Urban campus limits available space for expansion.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIncrease faculty salaries when possible and hire more tenure track lines.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
