No opinion of CEO

Pros

Many interesting and enthusiastic students who were very pleasant to teach. A very picturesque setting.

Cons

Management is very heavey handed and pays little attention to the needs of their employees. This led to a very unhappy working environment in the department in which I worked. Very poor communication from management also led to great difficulties in performing my job.

Advice to Management

Remember that staff are not mind readers and need to be told what you want. When staff tell you what they need to do their job, please listen. Provide staff with the basic materials and facilities to do their jobs.
