    I worked at Acelero full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Children, families and staff are all great to work with. Technology driven.

    Cons

    Upper management are horrible to staff the program is more focused on the dollars then the children and families served, pay is not that great when compared to the workload. Turn over rate is ridiculously high.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more in your staff and not just training overloads. Investigate incidents instead of giving up on staff. Treat teachers with respect from upper management.

    I have been working at Acelero part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Staff was amazing. Interacting with children was great. The concept for helping families was great but could never be accomplish because upper management (coordinators)would always change rules or overload you with data work.

    Cons

    Acelero only thinks about data and numbers; they can careless about families. You have over 3 bosses telling you what needs to be done. Meetings, trainings, etc at least 2x a week which piles up your daily work. Acelero doesn't appreciate what the lower staff does; they are the ones who actually make a difference with families. They overwork their lower staff. Upper management doesn't speak Spanish; Acelero services more then 95% of Spanish speaking families. No room for growth; pay is not good for the amount of work even with a Bachelors Degree, no raises. Very unorganized.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop thinking about data, numbers and $$$. Re-Read your mission statement; to help and support families. Appreciate your staff. And reevaluate how lower staff is ran and their job duties; stop over working them and maybe they will stay longer.

    Pros

    I like the job because it involved mostly working with children.

    Cons

    The management act like they would like to help you if you have any problem, but they are actually trying to benefit themselves and if they have to throw you under the bus to come out clean of any situation they will. they don't care about the children all they care is about money.

    Pros

    There's a sense of helping the community tied to the work.

    Cons

    Poorly organized. Bad communication between upper management and the rest of the company. Morale is lower than low. Staff feels largely unappreciated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You're not in a bubble. The things you do affect everyone. Consider that before implementing changes that you haven't fully assessed.

    Pros

    Cannot come up with ANy reason to work for or with Acelero. Founders are concerned with profit but not human capital or the families and communities they "serve".

    Cons

    Small ivy league management group is very condescending to the local employees and Head Start community at-large. Talented staff will not stay long. Disconnected to the reality of challenges families endure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out of the early childcare industry! And anything related to human services!
