    Pros

    The feeling you get when you see a performance (for free) and seeing all of the people in the audience, you know your work has paid off in keeping this beautiful music alive. My colleagues are all great people to work with. Flexible scheduling and shorter work weeks in the summer.

    Cons

    There is no room for growth and pay is rather low because it is a non-profit organization.

    Artistically speaking most rewarding; administrative and senior management - bottom of the barrel

    Pros

    71 year history, strong focus on artistic excellence, strategic alliances with peforming arts centers in Miami and Furt Lauderdale.

    Cons

    The CEO has been in place for 25 years, about 5 to 10 years too long; the Board has absolutely no backbone; after six or more years of operating losses the financial position is precarious and the Board has done nothing substantive to address it, letting the CEO continue, year after year, to run the company into the ground.

    Advice to Management

    Put all possible pressure on the Board to force the CEO out and try to build a totally new and reorganized company, It is high time that the Board became truly active in the overall management of the company.
