Pros

There is a great work/life balance; the college offers great benefits; and it is a creative and stimulating working environment.

Advice to Management

As long as the student experience remains at the center of decisions, Berklee is sure to find a way to prepare them for a career in the 21st century.

    Pros

    Fantastic benefits-- great vacation time, good healthcare and retirement benefits (with decent corporate match). The location is great, and it's nice working around students. I liked Berklee's PTO (paid time off) system-- I could accrue days off and use them as either sick days or as vacation days. These accrued fairly quickly and when I left I was paid out on them very well. I loved working there during the school year-- there was always great music, lots of people, and a busy and satisfying feel around the campus. It is a great place to work if you're looking to get into a career in music administration.

    Cons

    The pay was commeasurate with an entry level non-profit position, but it didn't seem that it would grow as I got more tentured there. I know that some of my more senior colleagues were not compensated very well either, monetarily.

    Advice to Management

    To provide more opportunities for lower-level employees. Doing so will keep the talent that they are able to hire out of colleges, but I felt very stuck in a data-entry job when I knew my talents would be better used elsewhere.
