    Pros

    Good, quality faculty members, and almost ALL are concerned with educating the students. Quite a bit of latitude in exactly what you teach in class. Good feedback system from students you teach. Pay is good.

    Cons

    Some class curricula needs to be revised quite a bit…it's out of date. ALso, classes are assigned to students out of order sometimes, putting more advanced students in classes with beginners.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to some industry professionals, and update and revise curriculum.

    Pros

    Being surrounded by young eagar minds ready to dig as deep as possible into everything art is a huge Pro in my opinion.

    Cons

    You're required to serve mandatory office hours for each class you instruct, but they don't pay you for it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your system is becoming more and more fubar.
    Stop ignoring faculty's requests and do the right thing for a change.

    Pros

    Meeting and talking with prospective students

    Cons

    Know that you're "selling" students an education that is too expensive and not necessarily accredited. It's a FOR-PROFIT "college" meaning that it's the admissions office job to recruit and keep up with numbers instead of really helping the students and their families throughout the admissions process. Expect to spend all day on the phone chasing down 'leads' (calling a list of potential students who showed interest either by just clicking a site or calling a 'warm call' line).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please show more interest in your employees work quality instead of gossiping about other employees. It show favoritism and sets a terrible tone for the type of work environment you are encouraging.
    The training process was more of a 'figure it out' game instead of in depth training.
    Also, in order for employees to pass certain required tests, it's not acceptable to have them ask for for other employee's to take the test for them while you turn a blind eye and close your office door.
    Be mindful of compliance issue.
