I worked at Emerson College full-time
They offer some great PTO benefits, there are a few nice people to work with, and there were the occasional free lunches. There are some pretty nice and very talented students if you're lucky enough to be able to work with them.
- Everyone, and it didn't matter what department, seemed miserable to be there. Terrible morale throughout the entire college and none of the higher-ups seemed to care or even try to make the office culture any better - For a communication school, there was terrible communication within departments and throughout the entire school. No one talked to each other and if someone went wrong, everyone was quick to place blame on someone else. - For the amount of time you put into your job, the pay is not close to being enough to live on in a city as expensive as Boston. They say they're to increase the salary to be competitive to other colleges in the area, but they don't even come close.
Advice to Management
While I understand that it's hard to increase salary for everyone at the school, i would highly consider trying to boost morale amongst all departments. There are some incredibly negative and rude higher-ups who are making others in their department miserable so they can feel better about themselves and that's not helping anyone.
