    Pros

    Great Community, Freedom in Work, Well Funded, Strong Leadership that attracts the best, and the most unique city in the country.

    Cons

    Poor administration logistics. Paperwork is slow and tedious due to poor service and information.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Streamline the paper mills by training the student workers. Its amazing how long it takes documents to go through such a small system, that's not counting the number of times things are simply lost in transit.
