Pros

Opera!, flexibility, great co-workers and events.

Cons

Limited mobility and innovation, internal communication could be improved.

Advice to Management

The state of leadership is currently undergoing reorganization. This, of course leads to a lot of communication misalignment and confusion. As soon as this is resolved, WNO will be in great shape.

    Pros

    This is a group of very talented, committed people who do an amazing job. They take their work seriously and people work very hard, but they don't forget to have fun along the way. Plus their events (and of course the operas) are fantastic!

    Cons

    Opera is expensive and there is never enough money to do as much as the group would like to do.

    Pros

    Great people to work with - everyone pitches in and acts as a team. Attending the dress rehearsals is a huge bonus.

    Cons

    Work is physically taxing at times, long hours of hand work can be very hard on your back and neck muscles.

    Advice to Management

    It might be good to have some events where employees of the costume shop can get to know each other better, like a dinner before a performance or a coffee break.
