    Pros

    I get paid, it is easy and there is NO stress!

    Cons

    Work is repetitive, there are the 'cool kids' that push their weight around, the parents have no sense of social norms and professionalism in the workplace is a rarity

    Advice to Management

    Make the tough calls and try not to cat like the students in your dealings!

    I worked at Cranbrook Schools part-time

    Pros

    Cranbrooks campus is simply incredible. Various different sites to see all throughout the area and a lot of interesting monuments in the art academy

    Cons

    Nothing really, great place with great people


  6. "Cranbrook Art Museum"

    Pros

    The Cranbrook Art Museum allows interns to learn a lot in a short amount of time. I received a lot of hands on experience and the people were incredibly welcoming.

    Cons

    I do not really know of any down sides for working for Cranbrook Schools. I enjoyed my internship there immensely.

    Advice to Management

    I don't have any specific advice for management. I thought my internship was very well managed and my experience very positive.

    I have been working at Cranbrook Schools full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    People I work with are smart and for the most part, motivated to do a good job every day. The setting is absolutely incredible. I never get tired of the beauty of the landscape and buildings.

    Cons

    Lean staffing so everyone is so busy you can't even get an email back when you need help with something. Everyone is operating on all four cylinders at all times and hardly anyone is slacking, it is just hard to get things done if it involves cooperation of anyone else. So many meetings that make it hard to carve out time to actually enact anything that is suggested in the meetings.

    Advice to Management

    Forcing people to wear too many hats will always end up with weak results.

    Pros

    I worked under an amazing and intelligent supervisor with interesting and knowledgable colleagues. Daily tasks were stimulating but not overwhelming. This was a great experience.

    Cons

    The only downside to working here was that I could only work a set amount of hours because my position was funded by grant money. Also, some of our equipment was out of date.

    Advice to Management

    I would have enjoyed working more hours for Cranbrook if my position had been funded for more time. At the time I worked there, much of the equipment needed updating.
