    I have been working at The Art Institute of Seattle full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Student focused curriculum that when presented properly encourages critical thinking and growth.
    Department directors are doing their best to stay focused on the quality of education.
    Some of the downsizing has actually refocused goals; combining some areas with Argosy University has created a more lively vibe in the halls.
    The faculty and much of the staff have high levels of professionalism and integrity, even with all of the chaos the past few years they still try to give the students a quality expereince.

    Cons

    As others have mentioned, there have been significant shifts in corporate goals and profit. They send out quarterly reports stating how we've made the company money shortly after laying off staff and facutly. This is definitely a top-down management company with all of us at the bottom trying to do the best for the students with less and less support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't out source key positions (like all of the student support services). Consider how you can improve employee morale, you've removed all of the little things and tightened the screws, what are you going to give back?

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 week - interviewed at The Art Institute of Seattle.

    Interview Details

    It was internal hiring process for me, and the interview wasn't that difficult since I've worked here previously. They mainly question you with behavioral questions- just to see how you delt with issues, pressure, and such.
