    I worked at New School part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The work is not super demanding and my superiors were very nice. The environment is also a plus.

    Cons

    Not many hours and poor benefits overall. Though I did work only part-time so it wasn't that big of a surprise.

    I have been working at New School full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Good location with a few attractive buildings, but too bad they spend more money on architecture and signage than they do supporting research.

    Cons

    Poor compensation; extremely low level of workplace engagement; part-time faculty and lower-level staff are treated like second-class citizens; full-time faculty are forced to perpetuate this treatment (e.g., by ensuring part-time faculty don't have opportunities to move into more permanent jobs).

    Pros

    Amazing managerial staff works very hard for the students and teachers experience to be the greatest possible environment in which to work!

    Cons

    Needs an endowment to expand resources for the betterment of the school. Maximum teaching hours 9 for part-time. No room to grow into a fulltime position as the school utilizes the many available musicians in NYC in the ever growing part time faculty.

    I worked at New School for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Plenty of space and time to develop your practice and work the system to your benefit. Lot's of smart, active, and savvy students. REALLY broad spectrum of unique domain programs - Parsons the largest of the group so Design is a big part of the discussion.

    Cons

    Remarkably siloed, slow to change, and suffering through a never-ending identity crisis create a challenging environment for personal growth within the community. It's a large institution with a relatively large number of slow moving, tenured legacy faculty, and a very large Unionized Part-time Faculty. This creates a ton of problems for change and, in an era when the headwinds for the business of academia are rising, this is not a position of strength.

    Pros

    Its Location: New York City

    Cons

    With the exception of New School for Social Research, full-time faculty of all other divisions, (Parsons, Lang, Performing Arts and Schools of Public Engagement) get very little respect from upper administration. Unlike Part-Time Faculty which rights are protected by their union; Full-time faculty is at the mercy of the higher administration. Thick politics, incredible opacity and devious manipulation lead with an iron fist by the President, Provost and Deans offices turn promotion and salary raise process into a sad jock. Although there are many committees, work forces, Faculty Senate and other assigned offices, they exist manly to serve the President’s and Provost’s mission which is incompatible with a democratic / fair process.

    I worked at New School full-time

    Pros

    Uninhibitedly intellectual; proud progressive tradition; huge talent among faculty and students.

    Cons

    Administration acts as if they are Tea Party Republicans, harassing those lower on the food chain like part-time and term professors, being militantly anti-labor, seeing those professors who are not tenured on the graduate-school levels as 'losers', and harassing and retaliating against any professor who complains or who stands up for faculty rights and governance,

    I have been working at New School part-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The students tend to be good.New Building looks promising even if it looks like a big coffin.Near subways.Beautiful art gallery even if it has horribly boring shows.

    Cons

    Lowered the credits to graduate yet increased the tuition, so cut 100's of professors hours in half. Part time union members were screwed by both sides in new negotiation where salaries were cut in half with no explanation. At Parsons ,because of seniority ,classes are now being taught by anyone who wants them even if they have no experience in field. The kids are getting less education and paying more. They do not honor hard work and great professors. They are changing the curriculum from a great design school to a hold hands group sing along. Too bad ,the days of Parsons being a great design school are over. :(
