    I have been working at Emerson College (More than 5 years)


    Emerson has a good benefits package, and it's great to eork in such creative culture. Great for transitions or short terms.


    Working here can be great or it can be a nightmare and it depends on whar department you work for. Also, depending on what you do, growth is almost impossible

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring VPs and hire more staff.

    Assistant Professor Interview

    Positive Experience


    Very brief phone interview, followed by a Skype interview, followed by an in-person interview on campus in Boston. Was hired almost immediately following the third interview. The accommodations were great and impressions made by the faculty were very positive. They seem to be as interested in personal values as they are with industry experience and academic acumen.
