    I have been working at Ringling College of Art & Design part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Housing and Meals fully covered Guaranteed Housing Great, friendly work environment

    Cons

    There's a lot of responsibilities associated with the RA position that often go beyond the 20 hours a week you are allowed to work. Too many unnecessary meetings and activities cuts into time that should be spent studying.

    Advice to Management

    Cut down on the unnecessary meetings, enforce reading info emails. Understand that no matter how much art students work, they're never finished.

    I have been working at Ringling College of Art & Design full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Always something new and interesting happening. Employer pays for employee health & life insurance...family cost is minimal. 2 to 5 weeks vacation + 2 weeks off over the holidays + 3 personal days + up to 12 days sick

    Cons

    Too much to do in time available

    Advice to Management

    Be more selective of new endeavors

      I have been working at Ringling College of Art & Design part-time

      Pros

      I get to connect the student body with the community through volunteerism

      Cons

      Many students wish not to participate in volunteerism, so it poses a challenge for us!

      I worked at Ringling College of Art & Design full-time for more than 10 years

      Pros

      Visionary leadership and stellar facilities make working at Ringling College a constantly evolving experience for those with drive and initiative. Being surrounded by a creative, diverse, international and wildly talented student body is an exceptional opportunity. Great benefits, beautiful surroundings and plenty of creative, brilliant people.

      Cons

      Work-life balance is extremely inconsistent depending upon level of responsibility and manager. Career advancement is difficult due to small staff size.

      Advice to Management

      Delegate workload and innovation among all levels of the college. The same 10 people do not have all of the great ideas, nor the stamina to do it all. Those in the lower ranks are more closely connected to the multitude of audiences Ringling College needs to build relationships with and have valuable insights to share if they were listened to and involved more often.
