    Pros

    every child is unique with very different personalities, most of them being silly and uplifting - makes the job much more worth it at the end of the day despite being a tiring job

    Cons

    monetary compensation could be better but the tuition reimbursement helps


  6. It is an experience like none other.

    Pros

    This place is somewhere that I am proud to say that I work. Awesome environment, great experience for future jobs, wonderful co workers, positive place. I love what I do. I love the fact that I am helping out an environment that so many people choose to either neglect or walk all over. I love being an advocate for my kids.

    Cons

    I am here for the benefits of tuition reimbursement and the experience. It is somewhere that I love, but would love more if I got paid what I was worth. I know SO MANY people that are making at LEAST 10 thousand more than me a year, doing the same thing, if not less than what I do.Severely underpaid, and sometimes I hate the "politics" of the job.

    Advice to Management

    Increase our pay! We do so much work for this place! I think we should be getting paid what we deserve. Luckily, we love what we do....we wouldnt be here otherwise


  7. I love working at Kennedy! It is a great community!

    Pros

    The work that is being done is leading in the field and you feel so great to see the children getting better.

    Cons

    Sometimes, the work can seem like a lot and you feel like leaving. But then you see the kids doing better.

    Pros

    Great working environment. Employees are hardworking and friendly. Institution serves a great community with an even greater cause. If you want to feel accomplished and fulfilled in your job this is the place for you.

    Cons

    The area isn't great but the facilities make up for it and security is available to all at all times. Benefits could be better.

    Advice to Management

    Training and development programs could use improvement.

    Pros

    Current evidence-based practices, association with Johns Hopkins, its tuition reimbursement benefit.

    Cons

    Low pay, dangerous work-setting (based on which department you're hired), not the best geographic location.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more team-building experiences and strive for a more modern company culture.

    Pros

    Good training experience, good work environment, and supervisors are enjoyable to work with.

    Cons

    The pay is not good and I've heard that the work-life balance is not as good as it once was, but it was reasonable when I was there.

    Pros

    A great place to build working relationships. Benefits are okay and tuition reimbursement is great. The company is great with its patients, families and community.

    Cons

    Sometimes hard work, skills and dedication is not enough because unless you know someone it is very difficult to move around within the company. After years of merit increases it is difficult for a veteran employee to transfer to a different department because the position starting pay is lower than the employees current salary. There is a lot of nepotism,,,that is all I am saying on that.

    Advice to Management

    Allow employment opportunities for current employees to work in the field they have obtained their degree in such as social work, accounting, business management, etc. "can't gain experience without training first"
