    Pros

    For faculty, working at SVA is good in that you get paid well to perform when you are teaching. The students are excellent and engaging and the facilities are excellent. Most teachers at SVA are leaders in their respective careers.

    Teachers do not have office hours, committe work, or departmental duties.

    Cons

    Everyone who teaches is an adjunct at SVA. Teachers are not paid for preperation time, student contact outside the scope of class, or grading. Because of this, teachers are well paid for their classes but since it's so little time (6-12 hours usually) it's impossible to make a living solely as a teacher. As a result, most teachers are professionals in their careers and usually work outside their teaching duties.

    SVA is an extremely entrepreneurial place so teachers needs to constantly stay current and propose novel ideas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More pay for teachers. Advacement for seniority or service.
