Suggestions for improvement

  • We need more space and more logical and efficient use of space for students to collaborate and staff to work. This is coming about but it is so slow to happen

What I like about the company

I like the relationships we develop with the students. It is great to see them grow in the time they are here and even as staff we help these young adults grow and mature.

I I like that I am given space to try out new ideas and if it does not work out that is ok - we learn from that and improve until we can get the process down.

What I dislike about the company

I wish parking was affordable. We are all given free access to mass transit though. Space is also always at a premium - I wish i was in one of the newer buildings.
