Pros

Friendly co workers, students and a relatively relaxed and well planned event management team that makes working a on the team a pleasure.

Cons

redundant and repetativ roles, some times quiet and not engagingdurning non peqk hours or weeks

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The head of student life is doing a great job and his assistants are very hard working based on the small size of the staff to student ratio.

    Pros

    If CCA comes a'callin' for your help -- to teach graphic design, writing, illustration, etc -- get ready for a bifurcated experience. The students are wonderful. But the pay is way low for the work and there is a caste system of "made" people vs "adjuncts."

    Cons

    The place is run by painters and other fine arts types -- when was the last time someone needed a leader and said, hey, let's call a painter in! That's what we need! One of those really organized, strategic, forward-looking painters!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay people for the actual work they do. You know those adjuncts make it possible for you to stay in business. Pay them as such.

    Pros

    The CCA community is very supportive, creative, engaged, and talented. You feel part of something bigger when you work here.

    Cons

    There is little to no support for professional development, unless it's free and you can do it on your own time. I found this lack of investment in me very frustrating.
