Art - Volunteer (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAMarch 29, 2017
Working at the High was a joy! Every day was filled new content and wonderful people. It's an amazing and low stress with ample time to explore and get lost in the beauty around you.

unpredctable work load, you get a lot of last minute things to do every day. very understafed, they expect a lot from employees and your underpaid. lots of unhappy poeple looking elsewhere for jobs, high turnover. all WAC cares about is atendance numbers and thats it. higher up managment always unhappy. workspace is cubicles and poeple constantly checking what your doing. the art is the best part.

turnover is very high, managment and leadership is horrible, pay extremely low, demanding environmunt, workplace is unequal and you get no recognishun for your owrk. guilted for going to lunch, extremely stresful environment, conservative enironment. staff is micromanaged.

Disjointed, inconsistent, but typically easy place to work if you like people
Ticket Agent (Current Employee) –  Atlanta, GAMay 12, 2015
Strictly for the box office:
Long tedious shifts (sometimes 10 hours) answering phone calls.
Often times understaffed during busy seasons and hours cut during off season.
Lackadaisical management.
Little support from IT and higher offices.
Disruptive and messy coworkers.
Clueless patrons.
You have to pay for parking, limited free parking in the area.
If you have all of the patience in the world, this could be an easy place to work.
Pros
Paid lunch, benefits available after period of time worked
Cons
Management often not present or helpful; hours are limited if not full time.

Job Culture
Traditional and limiting workplace
Manager (Current Employee) –  Atlanta, GAJuly 8, 2014
This is a very traditional and non-enterprising organization. The walls and interior are artistic but management and company culture is conservative and not embracing of innovation and change. An ok place to work if you have minimal career goals. This is an arts organization that is business as usual, with frustrated employees, out dated policies, with little to no growth opportunities for experienced professionals.
