    Pros

    Great opportunities to advance in your career. Fun environment with lots of travel.

    Cons

    Old school management. Some old-school managers have difficult time to adapt to change and by trying to keep their old formula they are less effective influencing younger generations.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage and Inforce change.

    Pros

    Good for those who want to escape the real-world
    Can be fun for the first several months
    Easy to save money

    Cons

    Very disorganized
    Don't necessarily get to travel. They often back out from sending G.O.'s to another village after saying they will
    Very long hours. Have to be at the bar every night until about 11pm, tough to get proper sleep.
    Very difficult to get a raise. Hard to make a career and save out of making $1,000 a month. No 401k matching.

    Advice to Management

    Increase GO staff and allow for 2 days off per week as well as decreased daily hours.
    Offer 401k matching,
