    I have been working at Academy of Art University full-time

    Pros

    close to the public transportation, some cool teachers and students. There is a $200 reward for current employee to introduce a friend if he gets hired here. It is great to get this money for punishing someone you doesn't like by throwing him in.

    Cons

    HR policy or benefits are just a picture in the frame. Please do not try to fight for your rights, just quit quietly. Never get approved to take vacation days when you are in need of it. Worked on holidays but did not receive paid day-off instead. Push you do over time work or work from home on weekends without paid. Managers do not know what they are talking about. A lot of practice do not make sense but you are not allowed to give suggestion. Talented co-workers will not stay here longer than 6 months, maybe even 3 months? No Complement, only Criticism. Every much micromanagement plus misleading. You are always monitored, good to say like a FBI, bad to say like a prisoner, go figure. You are just waiting for a day or a reason to get out of here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I am not even willing to give advice. Can they understand? How many managers were major in management?
