I worked at US Sports Academy full-time

Pros

Opportunities to do interesting work. Salaries and benefits decent.

Cons

The organizational structure is very regimented with two people ultimately making all decisions. Faculty do not have academic freedom in the traditional sense of the term. There is a 40% turnover among on campus employees every year. People often leave or are fired for no apparent reason. The work environment is stifling and a sense of paranoia pervades the organization. This is all due to the fact that President/CEO is the founder of the institution and the second in command is one of the founder's sons.

Advice to Management

Nothing to share because upper management is not prepared to listen to any advice.
