    Pros

    As always, there are passionate, exceptional employees who go above and beyond the call of duty an create a friendly and energetic atmosphere.

    Cons

    Office politics play a key role in the administration portion of this organization, mainly with relation to who is dating and/ or sleeping with who.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seriously, starting from scratch might be the best option for this not for profit and its lack of strategy.
