    I have been working at Maryland Institute College of Art full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    MICA has an amazingly supportive atmosphere with collaborative, dynamic colleagues who make you want to go to work everyday. MICA also provides excellent benefits, and the added bonus of seeing art on campus every day.

    Cons

    The pay is low, although this is common in higher ed. Also, as an art school, MICA is somewhat out of touch with best standards in the field of higher education- the desire to be true to "art school mentality" can cripple the college's progress. Finally, there is no accountability for faculty which breeds resentment in staff.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house and engage in the wider field of higher education. Replace salons of thought with action when trying to advance the college's mission.

    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    There is a wonderful environment of caring and thoughtful students and teachers.

    Cons

    I stated that I had been sexual assaulted and subject to dating violence by a student co-worker to multiple administrators and was denied accommodations (such as no longer having to participate in work-related responsibilities with this co-worker, even after stating I was suicidal). I was told by administrators that my only option for securing these accommodations was to file a Title IX grievance with the HR department. After filing the Title IX grievance, and finding staff/faculty who believed and supported me, I was retaliated against by administration for doing so.

    Advice to Management

    Support students in need.
