I have been working at Rhode Island School of Design full-time (More than 3 years)
Lots of nice co-workers, fairly tolerant environment for minorities, gender-queer, artists, freaks in general. Dress code usually casual. Pay is decent, benefits quite good.
Disorganization. Systems that are tied in knots. Faculty that make busy-work. Higher-level admins sometimes have an attitude problem, think they are special, and are paid too much to do sometimes very little. This leaves lower-level admins feeling under-valued. As with many places, those at low end of totem pole must sometimes show leadership and initiative beyond their pay grade. Can be very clique-ish.
Advice to Management
Lead. Focus on the actual minutia of running a school, a lot of which is not particularly interesting but makes for a nice environment when done properly. Stop focusing on glamorous-seeming projects that may amount to nothing and gain the school neither income nor prestige in the long run. Nuts and bolts, people.
