    I have been working at Art Center College

    Pros

    It is a very creative place and full of highly innovative people. There are a lot of energy and competition between students.

    Cons

    Art Center is a stressful envoironment and everything is happening in fast pace. No time to relax of rest if you want to be competitive and stay above average.

    I worked at Art Center College

    Pros

    Decent salary and benefits. Cool campus.

    Cons

    Ultimately, Art Center is a pretty cold place to work. Depends on the dept but certainly steer clear of admissions and KB unless you like to be micromanaged (as in, "let me just check to see what font you are using in your email" micromanaged). The admin is very much entrenched, territorial and new initiatives/creative thinking are ironically scarce at such a good art school. Lots of petty infighting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    New VP of Admissions. Check the retention rate of staff there... it's a revolving door.
