  1. "Kitchen Steward"

    I worked at New England Culinary Institute full-time

    Pros

    Not a bad place to wash dishes, amazing free food for the staff and some good free cooking lessons from top chefs.

    Cons

    Pay could have been a little bit better I guess, give raises to keep good employees instead of bringing in so many new hires.

    Advice to Management

    What I said before- You should give raises to keep good employees instead of bringing in so many new hires.

    I worked at New England Culinary Institute (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Supportive management in sometimes adverse employment conditions. The students make all business hiccups worth the extra work.

    Cons

    There is a lack of communication amongst faculty and staff at times that can lead to unnecessary angst and frustration.

    Advice to Management

    Improving communication will lead to a happier working environment.

    Pros

    Interesting subjects and you are surrounded by interesting food and information about food. The facilities are nicely housed at the Vermont College of Fine Arts in Montpelier, Vermont - another plus.

    Cons

    The students are generally unmotivated to learn and are apathetic at worst. There was a rash of plagiarism and widespread internet use during class.

    Advice to Management

    Support your adjuncts by emphasizing the importance of the core subjects like math and English. Culinary students will mostly listen to the chef instructors and ignore the academic faculty. This needs to change before the education can be truly worthwhile for the students.
