    Pros

    Working with the people and with the customers. Flexible schedule. Paid holidays are good too. You'll always have something to do.

    There are too many Lay-offs because of the community college schedule during holiday breaks and reduced hours due to slow business.

    Pros

    Decent location. That's about all I can say that's a pro.

    Cons

    Parking is a long distance with 2 flights of stairs to climb, unless you are handicapped. Depending on the department you work in , management either have no people skills, or don't know what they are doing, are wishy/washy.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to make yourself look good at the cost of your employees. Be consistent with all employees.
