    Pros

    Nice coworkers, good location, flexible hours, free food.

    Cons

    Advice to Management

    Treat your students and employees like people, not numbers, and perhaps you'll see a change in their work ethic. They might even stick around, instead of finding a new school/job in a few-month's time.
