    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    Great members who are appreciative

    Cons

    Bad Upper management -They have their own agenda and care nothing about their loyal employees and members. You seldom see managers involved with members and they don't listen to what members want. Customer Service in certain areas is non-existent. This is a community center-don't they get it.The new president is obnoxious!!!!!!!!!Staff is not spoken to respectfully by management and so they do the same to the members.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and listen to what you rmembers and part-time staff aresaying.Be morecaring to you employees,especially to the hardest workers who get NO RECOGNITION or LEADERSHIP! Get rid of new President! What a nasty person.
