    Pros

    At times can be really great customers for the most part really appreciate what you do for them.

    Cons

    Long I mean long hours and always on a spending freeze. Easy to demand stuff done but then give no help. Low pay for what all you have to do because you do it all.

    Advice to Management

    Get some of the people out of the home office and get them in the theatre running it for a week following their rules and guidelines...most cant. Increase wages to a liveable level on equal for what you have to do.
