      Pros

      You get 35-hour work week

      Cons

      Chaotic and random senior management and board of trustees, weak system and policies. Big gap in salaries between employees of the same level, inability to provide proper healthcare and benefits. Weak hierarchal plans where junior employees feel lost and uncertain of the future. Employer biased contracts where employees feel insecure and threatened.
