    Pros

    Great environment! It's very supportive in nature for new employees. The quality of facilities is very high.

    Cons

    Like any other place you work, there is some politics involved. But, it's not a prohibitive factor in employment.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in marketing the school so that your profitability grows as opposed to being flat year after year. Think like a division one athletic school in terms of an aggressive marketing campaign. Use the revenue to improve your ability to recruit and retain key talent. The quality of education for students is already high.
