    Pros

    Very nice location. Laid back atmosphere. Reasonable work expectation. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Relatively low pay with often and constant promises for pay scales or pay reform. Very difficult to advance. Management ranges from very good to Neanderthal-like. Upper management and President's office have been known to fire people with little or no due-process. Rampant nepotism evident in director level employees..

    Advice to Management

    Pay good people to keep good people. Your employee base is your backbone and while the environment at the school is first-rate. People like to be recognized for good work and not punished for trivial things.

    Pros

    It was great being able to do home work at "work", flexible hrs and scheduling, great for a work study job. great work environment. Awesome community of chill, laid back, liberian type folk.

    Cons

    I have no cons to speak of, except maybe that the pay is pretty low, was Florida minimum wage and I think it requires that you met requirements for work study.
