      Pros

      Great students working on interesting, diverse projects. Colleagues were amazing teachers, students, and grad students from all different backgrounds. I met some really amazing people here who really cared about education! Good benefits.

      Cons

      Some of the upper management get paid too much to do too little. I've heard they are now cutting essential services like student health and tutoring.

      Beware of this "progressive" institution

      Nov 2, 2017 - Senior Administrator in New York, NY
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Good benefits (health, dental, vision, retirement and vacation time)

      Cons

      The New School, while progressive in theory and its outward PR, has shifted towards a corporatized style of management where employees are overworked, under-appreciated, and fearful due to increasing job insecurity. We've watched so many great colleagues (staff AND faculty) disappear, with no transparency, and an expectation that no inquiries into these staff eliminations be made. Those work responsibilities are then piled onto the already overworked remaining staff- without promotion or pay (which is modest and insulting to begin with compared to other institutions). Full-time faculty are also being told their positions are no longer "institutionally needed" and their positions are being eliminated on a large scale. The culture of fear and insecurity permeates the environment on all levels.
