Pros – The instructors really care about their students.
Cons – People are hired with the idea that they will not last (ie. very little investment in the individual employee such as roles explained or training given. Little interest in developing more than a passing relationship with the new hire.) "Counselors" pressured to provide counseling with AIMs bottom line in mind, not the perceived best interest of the student. Management has poor professional boundaries (ie. yelling.)

Pros – Many instructors and staff truly love what they do for the students and it shows
Cons – School management does not follow-up on staff/student requests quickly, does not coomunicate effectively the "big picture" so staff/students have a clear understanding of what is expected. They work "reactively" and not "proactively". The main excuse I have heard so many times is that "I have 400 students to deal with", yet many times the littlest act of communication, to stay informed with students/staff, is overlooked.
Advice to Senior Management – Listen to your staff and students, learn to set time apart directly for them so they completely understand what is going on and this just may control the tension a bit.
