yeah....

I'm utterly certain that there are big criticisms of the place tho, and i thought i'd read them here. People have probs w/ WBC too, but i can't remember them either neutral

actually i remember someone (who posts on here sometimes) talking about how they treat their workers quite badly at festivals, e.g. absolute minimum break allowance, fairly crappy money (for their organisation, that is - they don't get paid for volunteering at festivals IIRC), long shifts...

nevertheless, i've only ever heard good things about the bread and roses in that regard

I think it may be that they've put new management in who are under orders to make a profit at all costs, hence meetingroom fees have gone up, ditto bar prices
