I worked at Emerson College as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

Emerson students are very focused and passionate about their studies. Great full-time faculty to collaborate with. Great location in downtown Boston.

Cons

You can't always control when classes are scheduled. Managing student expectations can be stressful. As a teaching grad student I wasn't given faculty library privileges.

Advice to Management

Teaching as an adjunct can be uncertain from semester to semester. My replacement was asked to teach before I was asked whether I was interested in continuing in my position, even though I had received positive reviews from students and other faculty.

    I worked at Emerson College full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    At Emerson faculty and staff work cooperatively to enhance educational opportunities and experiences for students. There is a shared sense of mission and purpose and a belief that "we are all in this together." I've worked at five colleges and universities, and Emerson is the best of the bunch in terms of the work environment and ethic.

    Cons

    If you are not interested in communications and the arts, Emerson may not be the best fit for you. There's a certain quirkiness to some aspects of the college and the way things are done. There is also a bit of insularity in some quarters and a notion that thing have to done "the Emerson way."

    Advice to Management

    There is significant room for improvement in the operation of the Human Resources Department and in providing opportunities and venues to facilitate informal faculty-staff interaction, especially given that Emerson most live a significant distance from campus.
