    Pros

    The people, the shows, and the music.

    Cons

    Shows center around the weekends so you may lose your weekend.

    Pros

    The music and new facility is great. Location in Hayes Valley make for lunch and after work fun.

    Cons

    Management is beyond flawed. Employees are treated with utter contempt. An open office setting allows everyone to view the almost daily mean-spirited, nasty interactions with the founder of the organization. He is prone to rage. At anyone. At anytime. For anything. He can also be physically abusive.

    Pros

    Brand new building with world-class sound. Amazing music programming. Stunning education program. Dedicated to being a community partner. Terrific location in Hayes Valley surrounded by other arts and performing spaces. Lovely restaurant in the lobby.

    Cons

    Moving into a new building means new systems need to be built, new ways of operating need to be created and roles are changing. It makes some people uncomfortable that we are no longer a gypsy organization.
