quality

Cons

Pressure - demanding working environment, very easy to be nervous or unhappy
Long working hours are taking granted - often exhausted people found
Salary - not really great in the name of being at Yale
Poor safety measure - got improved but still a lot to work on in many areas

Advice to Management

Need to improve safety within school area. Need to recruit more admins to be efficient.
