I worked at Bennington College full-time (More than 5 years)
Bennington is a very good place to work - the people are great, and the college is an organization that you can really get behind. Good benefits also. There is an energy to working around college students, as they all have a thirst for learning that is infectious.
The organization has some problems with inter-department coordination, which can make it difficult to get some kinds of tasks done. It takes time to build personal relationships that let you get around the red tape and achieve your goals.
