I worked at Cooper Union as a contractor

Pros

Excellent student body. Students are intelligent and self-motivated. Institution has a great history, which is quite exceptional in a sector ever more driven by business logic.

Cons

With rare, individual exceptions, students are not as versed in intellectual debates as they should be. Salaries and workshop fees are rather low, although not unusually so.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There needs to be a more systematic approach to the education process, which require a more process oriented focus on the management part. Better tools, better compensation.

    Pros

    The students are the best part of working at Cooper Union. They ultimately make it worth while. The school also makes up for the lack of pay with the benefits package.

    Cons

    There isn't very much room for advancement. If not, you will end up being here for 10+ years because it's such an easy job that doesn't require much of you. There is a lack of communication on a lot of peoples part. No one really ever knows what's going on outside of the office they work in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make an effort to improve the school for both students and "lower" staff. Communication is a great tool that should be used.

    Pros

    Promotion system is very good. The working habitat is very loose, and it's easy to get along with others. The pay is pretty decent.

    Cons

    The management system is not good. There isn't much management. Workers work for themselves. Rarely will management step in and take charge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They should try to be more involved with the school and what goes on within it instead of staring from the outside and making changes.
