    Satisfactory, but I'm always on edge, plagued by management mishaps

    Current Employee - Preschool Teacher in Seattle, WA
    Current Employee - Preschool Teacher in Seattle, WA

    Pros

    The benefits package is ample, given that this is entry-level work - the healthcare plan is especially good considering the plans offered by similar jobs. Free membership to your local and surrounding gyms for you and your partner/roommate is good, and the facility itself is wonderful. The families I serve are mellow, happy people and a generally a pleasure to work with.

    Cons

    Job titles may change (for better or worse) without your knowledge, and updated job descriptions may or may not be given to you. Slightly worse pay for the actual teachers than similar work, but management can make (self described) large amounts of money. Long time staff foster an unavoidable culture of middle school level tattle-tailing and malicious gossip, which has made me worry about the security of my position. Management may or may not have experience with what they're managing, leading to serious disconnects between practice and paperwork. Repeated reminders that anyone may be fired for misfiling paper work or accidental acts of negligence has set me and my coworkers on edge, and I've heard of several firings in that vein. I like my work, but this is not a sustainable position. No room for upward mobility whatsoever, but staff are still pressed to get more certifications, and higher positions are held are arm's length. No pay raise associated with certifications.

    Advice to Management

    Hire management with direct experience with what they're managing - I am seeing and hearing about problems regarding this across programs and sites. Raise wages for service level staff if you want to retain them long term, and stop focusing on things that will get them fired. Provide actual positions for upward mobility if you are going to talk about it as a goal, and quell the raging gossip machine that has been fostered by long term staff.
