    Pros

    Supportive and flexible environment. Good benefits, decent pay, tuition reimbursement, and a stable pension system.

    Cons

    Unions. Stellar employees will be frustrated by lack of opportunities to promote or take on new roles.

    Advice to Management

    Promote ability over resumes. The unions really impact work performance, negatively, due to lack of incentives for good work.

    Pros

    The best reason to work here is the flexible evening hours and the ability to set your own schedule. It also has an excellent staff full of personable and easy going people who have great stories and interesting outlooks on life.

    Cons

    Some of the challenges of working here is the difficulty in getting promotions and pay raises. Additionally, some of the vehicles that are given to staff are not cleaned inside regularly, even though they are well maintained mechanically.

    Advice to Management

    Some positions should have an increase in responsibilities. There should be more training and room for life-long employment as a full time staff member.

    Pros

    The office culture is nurturing, artistic and collaborative. Great coworkers.Training is hands on. My Supervisor was a good leader and wouldn't ask anyone to do something that she wouldn't do. Flexible schedule.

    Cons

    Benefits weren't offered to part-time employees. However, full-time wasn't an option for the midday shift. The compensation was capped.
