    Positive Outlook

    Pros

    My experience is limited to the MBA program at Bard. The administration do an excellent job of organically growing a this already strong program. They are open to and act on new ideas and suggestions for improvement. I was given a high degree of latitude to develop my class how I saw fit given the needs in the business world. Support related to student or technical issues has almost always been swift and thorough. The faculty is talented and collaborative, and the students challenge me in every class.

    Cons

    The program can be under resourced at times. That is to be expected with a new program that grows organically. No other cons to report.

    Advice to Management

    Continue looking at prerequisites students should have coming into the program in order to maximize their education to graduate with the skill level, knowledge and experience you want them to share with the world.


  10. "Major Gifts Officer"

    Pros

    It is a unique place, fairly generous in terms of salary, benefits, and work/life balance.

    Cons

    Administrative/business incompetence is rampant and the school is doing little to address its weak financial position (in particular its inadequate endowment and recent credit downgrade).


  11. "Drop In CS Tutor"

    Star Star Star Star Star
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Annandale on Hudson, NY

    I have been working at Bard College part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It's a pretty rewarding job. People come in and ask for your help. Pretty standard procedure for a tutoring position

    Cons

    You tutor for 3 hour shifts in a window less room. Some people wait for you to give them the answer, which you very much shouldn't do.

    Advice to Management

    Pay people on time. Management is really bad at processing student time sheets. Absurd, really. Other than that, hire more tutors.
