No life / work balance for employees
Full Time Employee (Former Employee) – Savannah, GA – January 3, 2018
I worked at SCAD for over 10 years.
For students, it is a great living and learning environment. It is very expensive though, with some students taking out over $100 K in loans to attend.
The college has bad nepotism problems. The president and owner married a former student and together they strike fear in most employees. People learn to keep their head down and not attract attention.
Fast paced and student focused, the employees are often impacted with long hours and little job security.
This is more like an oligarchy than a traditional college. People fear the president, her husband and inner circle.
Savannah is beautiful but is a very dangerous place because of crime, something the college tries to compensate for by hiring lots of (unarmed) security guards.
nepotism, greed, no job security
