    I have been working at Child Development Center full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    flexible hours to work around school and family functions.

    Cons

    poorly managed, didn't pay for training needed yearly, cared only about their own pocket book rather than the ones doing all the work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    realize that with out the ones you pay so poorly you would have no business. A happy employee makes a good worker.

    I have been working at Child Development Center

    Pros

    There are kind families to work with. It is rewarding to work with children with special needs.

    Cons

    High case loads, lack of leadership, leadership gossips and bullies lower staff - most likely because of stress. Very stressful job. Problems with job security, funding is sketchy. Threats concerning job loss are offered during staff meetings which increases stress. Need to drive long distances in the winter which can be very scary with icy roads - if you apply make sure to get snow tires. Leadership is more concerned about making money than serving families. Benefits continue to be cut each year. Health insurance is very expensive.
