    Pros

    The environment is laid-back, but productive. Management in our department truly listens and wants us to be viewed as teachers instead of the bad guys. Policies have to be followed in order to maintain the contract.

    Cons

    Consistency and subjectivity. The benefits stink for the price and need serious negotiation. Let us opt out, grandfathered employees have no safety net.

    Advice to Management

    Create a manner of so for appeals and audits, so that it eliminates discrepancies. It helps all of us know difinitively how to do our job. Follow the company's ethos. Legal, medical, and financial risk could occur from the callers if this is not followed.
