Pros

Beautiful part of the USA. Large seemingly serence campus

Cons

Unfair , unprofessional and disreputable employement practices. Cult like senior managment. very protective of adminstration practices despite being hired to implement change.

Advice to Management

They say they want more professional people from the outside yet when they get them they do not respond to advice f input and actions for best practices. Cult like senior management yet when they hire a manager they are afraid of anyone doing the right thing! They are disenguine about their motives and clearly act in a steely manner as they drag people out there to their "paradise" and then... in their own words according to Holly,,, "the sanctuary spits them out"

    Pros

    nice animals, a pretty location

    Cons

    cult-like. they fire employees like it is going out of style.

    Advice to Management

    no advise to give management, it is not run by managers, it is run by supposably retired founders that run it from the sidelines. the founders manage it through fear to keep employees paranoid. managers are afraid too. every one is afraid of losing thier job.

    Pros

    The animal caregivers truly love the animals and try to give them first-rate care. The organization also puts out wonderful PR and the positive effect it has on animal adoption makes the entire thing worthwhile.

    Cons

    Employees, especially animal caregivers, are not treated well at all. They are often belittled and grossly overworked. Often one or two people are covering an entire area all by themselves, and many animals are feed special diets twice a day plus all areas have to be cleaned. If there are no volunteers that day, the caregiver must do everything for all of the animals in their care. Many people move to Kanab with a dream about this wonderful place, but when they finally realize what they have gotten into, there are few other options for employment in this small town. Managers are often not terribly qualified and have no idea how to treat people. BTW, i am not disgruntled - I just hate to see people treated this way. Many people are fired with very little justification. I was not fired, but it came to the point that I was so unhappy it was making me physically ill.

    Advice to Management

    Stop promising to listen to employees who have grievances as if you intend to do something about it. Everyone knows that it is the first step out the door to go to HR with any kind of issue.
