    Arcadia University Art Office and Art Gallery-Wonderful introduction to the art world

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Arcadia University

    Pros

    This was a wonderful introduction to the art world. Because I worked in the art department of a small liberal arts college, this let me gain first hand experience of what the art world is like and let me take ownership of the things that I did there.

    Cons

    The art department needs more space, so that they are able to run smoothly and to the best of their ability.

    I have been working at Arcadia University full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Community feeling, benefits were better before the economic crisis but they are still better than some, beautiful campus, nice people.

    Cons

    Management hates confrontation and allows bullies in departments to run things. There are people I work with and I quite honestly don't understand why they have jobs or what they do other than propitiate an environment of fear and blame.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bad apples should not be allowed to contaminate an entire department.

    Pros

    I worked in the Biology Secretary's Office
    The hours were very flexible and the pay was decent for the work done

    Cons

    The was a cap on the number of hours we could work due to budget's, not the job's fault but more my program.
    Sometimes there is not much to do, which is nice, but can be boring and I feel like I should be doing something

    Pros

    Beautiful campus, tight knit community, great people. Every staff and faculty knows each and a pleasure to work with

    Cons

    Issues with media and event requests. For example, during certain events, they just want these shots that would not be recommended in certain conditions, but still push forward. We all want a great product, let's actually discuss it.
