    I worked at International Academy of Design & Technology (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Dynamic Fashion Staff. The instructors care about the students, focusing on student learning and success in the classroom as well as their potential in the garment business.

    Cons

    Perhaps the head office might take guidance from teacher input.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the instructor on the campus who deal one to one with our clients.

  5. "Instructor"

    Pros

    Opportunity to create your own lesson plans and own curriculum.

    Cons

    Sometimes working with negative instructors who do not care to help students succeed. Had one instructor tell me that the students will never get into their intended industry, which is not a good approach to teaching. Limited time to prep for classes. Classes themselves can be up to 5 hours long, which is hard on the students and the instructors.

    Pros

    International Academy of Design and Technology had a great health care and benefit packages. The teachers and faculty cared for the students.

    Cons

    There was not much room to advance within the company and the company is no longer in business.

    Advice to Management

    While I enjoyed my time working for the company, there was no opportunity to advance from an entry-level position.

    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    The salary is pretty decent. They do provide severance packages for those that qualify. They offer full benefits and vacation days increases as year milestones are reached. 5 (3 weeks) and 9 years (4 weeks)

    Cons

    However, the bonuses and raises have stopped for anyone who has, by their standards, capped out their salary. They have continually downsized over the last 8 years, to the point where the support staff is constantly worried if their jobs will exist next quarter. Makes for an uneasy environment.

    Advice to Management

    Don't underestimate the value of employee insentives or employee appreciation. Worker moral can directly effect student population, retention and graduation rates. It is important to take care of your staff and make them feel like what they do day in and day out matters.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at International Academy of Design & Technology full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Management listens to input from front line staff. Strict 40 hour work week -- I'm used to working 50 to 70 hours so I'm loving the "short" work week. Great on boarding process -- lots of reminders to get things done. Also LOTSf training. Staff meetings where everyone actually acts like a grown-up!

    Cons

    This location closing in less than 2 years so no future here.

    Pros

    Competitive Environment and great relationships with students

    Cons

    Somewhat Micromanaged, no level of autonomy

    Advice to Management

    Let the employees do their job and then hold them accountable. Give them some space and eliminate distractions from HQ.
