Great insight to the professional world, too short hours
Technician (Former Employee) – Boston, MA 02134 – June 21, 2016
The pay at this place was fine, but it was difficult to pick up hours. The most I was working a week was 25 hours, and I was prepared for upwards of 40 as an undergraduate student. Very friendly IT Staff and the customer base was relatively pleasant as well.
Production Coordinator/Layout Designer (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – September 20, 2015
The benefits package is great, and very comprehensible, although advancement and growth is never guaranteed, it depends on what department you work for and who is your boss. A lot of people coming and going constantly.
Assistant Director (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – November 13, 2014
Career advancement isn't easy unless you're very good friends with the higher-ups in the office. Additionally, it much more stressful than it should be for an office setting. The stress comes from the top down and is over some of the most simple things. There is high turn over and positive office culture isn't encouraged. There are some co-workers who are really great to work with, but if they're at all good at what they do, they'll find a better paying job that doesn't treat them like a worker bee.
great downtown boston location, easy to get to via public transportation
negative office culture, poor compensation compared to other colleges in the area
Assistant Director of International Admission (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – February 18, 2014
Very fast paced office, but great exposure to the arts. Employees enjoy the arts and exciting vibe of the college. Hardest part of job was the intensity of the office which was faster paced than the rest of the school. Most enjoyable part of the job were the students and all the amazing benefits of the school.
Great Communications College with a Terrific Reputation
Staff Assistant (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – March 11, 2011
I found workng for a college in a non-educational role interesting. They are "Non-Profit" and do not necessariliy pay well - although the benefits can be fantastic - weeks off between holidays, etc. A rebelious environment would be a great description!
Student Assistant (Former Employee) – 80, 100, 120,150 Boylston Street – December 13, 2011
I simultaneously attended, DJ'd at, and worked for various interdepartment within this institution. I was also very active in the multicultural aspect of this private liberal arts institution. As woman of color from an urban community, I can say the overall experience was conducive to, contingent upon, and reliant upon social connections, and sometimes even race, as it was predominantly European, and yet so cultured. It can be argued that my pay rate was lower on account of my scholarship, or not. So much to say about it, although the experience ended quite recently...
expensive, may be subject to discrimination, or being overworked
a beneficial educational experience, and central to prospective media majors!
Excellent job for those looking for a start in law enforcement
Campus Police Officer (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – March 28, 2014
I worked for this company for 9 years, during which time I was given the opportunity to learn about so many different cultures and people. my coworkers were always there to help. Hardest part of the job was watching the students move on in their life. The most enjoyable art was getting to know all those I was entrusted to protect.
Senior Staff, Emerson College Summer Conference (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – April 8, 2014
As a Summer Conference Professional Staff I was able to take on a new role in which I was a supervisor to 20 staff members, a counselor to high school students, and a manager of the camp program. Because of my friendly demeanor and my responsible nature I succeeded in this position creating a happy and safe environment for our guests, campers and staff. I enjoy working in a fun environment that provides enriching experiences.

Working in a college means be in touch with an ever changing environment
Teacher Assistant (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – April 9, 2014
Working as a teacher assistant is great. It is an amazing opportunity to learn from experienced teacher the craft of enlightening young minds. The hardest part of the job is, if you don't know your subject very well, your have to learn it pretty fast. It can be a very demanding environment sometimes.
Temporary Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – February 10, 2015
Nice place to work. I am really glad that I got to work there because I really like Emerson college and all it has to offer. Emerson is located in the heart of Boston and it is easy to get to on the train and buses.
