Head coach; snowboard team

Head Coach (Former Employee)
Boston, MA

Prosthe students I had that I coached are top notch, I would recommend them anywhere anytime

Consthey are excellent at taking advantage of the small person/ you give 100%, BU takes 100% advantage/ BU is not willing to compensate for a job well done/ not willing to pay out more for a job that would pay a lot more(double or triple) anywhere else, and is not willing to negotiate what so ever

Advice to Senior Managementstep it up when it comes to individuals that are willing to give it their all. Take notice of the work put in, and be willing to negotiate.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
