    Pros

    Great park employees. Great party leadership.

    Cons

    Not enough leadership. No accountability. Expensive benefits. Corporate management is untrained and does not fight for the employees. Employees get no raises. Nearly no bonuses in many years. Don't expect bonus and you'll be happy.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with respect. Reinstate the additional levels of leadership. It's rare to see someone takes notice of the good or bad. There are rumors of a large flight in January, just be aware.

    Listen to their worker & guess more to upgrade the park & make it better
