    Administration = Good People, Good Work

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Grand Rapids, MN

    ProsLot's of recognition and thanks for the work you do, good upward mobility, people love the cause and feel passionate about working there

    Consthey have their share of difficult people but generally everyone gets along, senior management can be a little unpredictable.

    Advice to Senior Managementinvest in marketing and infrastructure, not just musicians. The administration does just as much to keep that place alive as all the artistic talent and should be treated well for it.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    There are high expectations for job performance and kudos for a job well done at this friendly organization.

    ProsA face-paced work flow with shifting priorities challenge the individual who works in the office. There is so much to do, time and deadlines are never long enough, yet the projects get done and in the end, beautiful music to appreciate.
    There is a great bunch of dedicated people in this place!

    ConsThey should consider hiring a few more people to alleviate the pressure on the diligent people they have there.

    Ok. Not for those who need to support themselves or a family.

    (Former Employee)

    ProsInteresting work. Chances to work events and enjoy the fruits of your labor. Good insurance and HRA, flexible work schedule

    ConsVery low pay for the level or work and stress. Like any organization they want you to generate more results with less investment. The company has not given raises in several years, but rather pay cuts. A single person could never afford to support themselves in the salary paid. Management styles are outdated and they seem to be out of touch with the world around them.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up with the times, attend a class or seminar. Management needs to let go of outdated methods. You must be willing to spend money for quality work to generate quality results. Employees must receive raises and praise, or else they will lose faith in the organization and walk away. Also, employees are not held accountable for their behaviors.

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