Suggestions for improvement

  • Being closed on Mondays would help my company maintain employees for longer. Also, we do not close for events that book the entire facility, which leads to complaints both from the event holders and our visitors.

What I like about the company

I have been able to move between departments to find the right fit for me, and never felt that I wasn't valuable when I did not fit. We have a variety of employee events that help us build a strong community. This company has protected me and my interests in sexual harassment situations.

What I dislike about the company

There is little likelihood or probability of moving up within the company without a supervisor leaving their position. We are also open seven days a week, which makes it very difficult to maintain a healthy work-life balance for departments like mine which require someone to be here every day. The demands get higher while the budget gets smaller.
