    I worked at The Art Institutes (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Can pick schedule - hours and days usually

    Cons

    Some teachers just give busy work to students. They have no interest in teaching them what they need to know in their field. Especially in Graphic Design. They grade improperly and jst want work turned in. they don't care about the quality. It's all about numbers.

    Advice to Management

    When the same teachers get bad reviews all over the internet do something about it. ALL the students can't be wrong! There's obviously a problem!

    I worked at The Art Institutes full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people can be friendly. They're intelligent, and many have great senses of humor. All of the Assistant Directors of Admissions that I worked with did seem to genuinely care about the kids.

    Cons

    The management is AWFUL. I have never worked in such a cancerous environment. They use emotional and psychological tactics, such as telling employees that other employees are badmouthing them on the floor (which normally isn't true, but it's so devastating that it reaches a reaction of vulnerability that they want). They belittle their employees, publicly announcing numbers (PS- aren't we supposed to be about education here?) in front of all other employees at large meetings in order to push them into action. Recently they held a meeting and encouraged everyone to go ahead and quit if they weren't serious. The management is completely brainwashed, and absolutely do not have any stock in the employees. The employees are sat down in meetings and told to basically perform, or they're gone. This is a hardcore sales position, and all of the sales is masked in "doing what's best for the student.. isn't education great." Well, it IS great. But not for that price tag, and, in the sake of the employees, not at the sacrifice of their santiy, and complete belittlement. PLEASE be careful!

    Advice to Management

    I would just say to be careful. You have treated many employees really, really poorly, and word does travel very quickly. Please be honest when you interview applicants not only about the job, but about the working environment.
