    I have been working at The Art Institute Online part-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    There is a core group of supportive leaders/educators committed to doing the best they can with limited time and resources to improve the quality of the online programs. Communication between department leaders and instructors is good. Flexibility of teaching online can be a positive, but be prepared to be on the clock up to 24/7. There are high but appropriate expectations of online faculty. Be prepared to meet them....

    Cons

    Online instructors cannot modify courses, but some courses need a complete overhaul and are difficult to teach because the content of the course is either outdated or does not sufficiently prepare students to succeed. Instructors sometimes spend more time trying to explain poorly written instructions than teaching and helping students learn. Overall quality of student work is erratic because of the inconsistent quality...

    I have been working at The Art Institute Online full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They offer a pretty good pay, a great work environment, and solid benefits. It's great getting to go to work here everyday.

    Cons

    What your job experience is like can vary greatly from director to director. I find their Compliance gaps to put a lot of unnecessary feelings of having to watch over your shoulder especially for newer employees.

    Advice to Management

    Change compliance gaps, split up pto and sick time. Treat employees situationally instead of slapping a rule or compliance gap on it.

    Pros

    You can work from anywhere.

    Cons

    1. The pay is too low. 2. There are too many students in the classes. 3. They expect you to go to meetings but want you to do it for volunteer work and not pay. 4. They expect you to take extra classes to have 10 hours of continued education. But wont even let their employees enroll in their own classes for free. 5. They don't allow for Facilitators to attend any meeting related to curriculum changes or updates, or...

    Advice to Management

    I have given advice to management in the past and they don't listen so no point in writing it out here.
