    Pros

    Beautiful campus, newer buildings are nice

    Cons

    Ideals no one can live up to, letting go of employees all the time and blaming the ones left for not being able to keep up. Passive aggressive attitude of management under the guise of authenticity.

    Advice to Management

    Take more care of your employees, take more ownership of your own faults.

    Pros

    the classes taught help so many people, the mountain location is beautiful

    Cons

    in a time warp. Looks like the 70s. employees are pressured in a million ways - to be in classes, to work super long hours. everything is important, no matter how small. always an emergency.

    Advice to Management

    retire. either close the place down or let someone else run it. does this place have a future? seems management is only interested in the past.
