    Pros

    Company is driven for excellence. If a person works hard they have many chances for advancement. Rewarding work seeing the student success. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Upper management micro-manages the Centers. Pay could be better but that is more a contract issue.

    Advice to Management

    Show more appreciation and let the staff do their job.

    Pros

    Helping at-risk teens and young adults....Being able to watch them grow to be productive citizens.

    Cons

    This is the worst company to work for. They do not back up their employees. Its all about the numbers. They work their employees to the bones and pay little over minimum wages. You give then 100% and they want 150%. They are never satisfied.

    Advice to Management

    Work with the employees. Get to know them personally. Don't take what the management says as the final word.

    Pros

    The people I managed were terrific. We had a great team of 8 managers and an admin assistant. We all worked well together and as a team.

    Cons

    Management and corporate office are non-supportive. They set you up to fail and treat employees badly, thus a high turn over. They go through managers, staff and directors bi-yearly. Terrible working conditions and low pay unless you are a center director.

    Advice to Management

    Start treating people better, you might actually keep some of the good people. Pay more.

    Pros

    If you are willing to work hard and want to move to different areas then they provide you the opportunities to do so. Everyday you can make a difference in some kids life who don't have all the resources to be successful.

    Cons

    Tough work environment as you are working with kids who don't come from the best environment -inner city, low income

    Pros

    Seeing the students obtain a High school diploma and GED, along with a trade. That was my joy in coming to work every day knowing that I help one student.

    Cons

    Work hours to long, and too many meetings and trainings. Have to be in the click to fit in.

    Advice to Management

    Some management need to attend management training. Advocate for their staff and to be fair and honest.
