    Great company to receive thorough training and supervision. Tuition reimbursement is a huge help! Benefits are generous as well.

    Compensation is fairly low; however job opportunities are more geared towards gaining training.In some departments compensation is not increased if you receive certifications/licensing.

    Pros

    Friendly environment. Not a lot of micro managing.Clean

    Cons

    The upward mobility is limited. The executive seem to be more concern with securing money oppose to actually fulfilling the grant requirement. Job security is not firm.

    Advice to Management

    Embrace and support the neighboring community more.

    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

    Pros

    Gained valuable experiences working with the ASD population. Everyone there is truly there to make significant contributions to the field and that is clear from the environment.

    Cons

    Benefits and salaries are on the low end for the hours expected from their employees. Would be nice to have more significant packages that are competitive with other areas of the market.

    Advice to Management

    Would love for more emphasis on work-life balance. Loved the job but burnout happens too fast and more built in time off may improve overall productivity.


  8. 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.

    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.

    Training and development programs could use improvement.

    Pros

    It is by far the most friendly and supportive environment I've worked in. I worked at the K-8 school for students with special needs as a Program Aide I. Good hours (7:30 - 2:30), free parking and transportation (shuttle), friendly supervisors and management. I loved the kids and classroom I worked in. Co-workers were amazing. Just a great environment if you can handle kids with special needs.

    Cons

    As a Program Aide, $12/hr is very low. The teachers and assistants have a lot between designing lessons, paperwork, meetings, and individualized education plans, but are compensated. As a Program Aide, you work one on one with students, helping them with work, social issues, and physically transporting them to a resource area if they become a threat to themselves or others (along with accompanying paperwork). That's all fine and good but $12/hr for one of the most hands on jobs at the school is low. Raises are also capped.

    Advice to Management

    Management is always extremely friendly, helpful, and supportive. Consider budgeting more for your lower level employees and you would see skyrocketing turnover rates lower.


  11. A great training experience, though the compensation is not so great.

    Pros

    Great training at a world class institution; supervisors are fantastic;

    Cons

    The pay is not great and I was not a huge fan of living in Baltimore.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the great training, consider bumping-up the pay.
