    Great program for families but not for employees.

    Teacher (Current Employee)
    Stanford, CA

    ProsThey strive for high quality childcare and provide that to the families. We get to create meaningful relationships with families and coworkers.

    ConsThere is a lot expected of us such as curriculum being completed by a certain day each week and prep work to be done but we are not provided with the support needed (such as time) to complete that work. Also, benefits are not good. And 5 days of sick/vacation are given a year. Not nearly enough when dealing with sick kiddos' germs on a daily basis!

    Advice to Senior ManagementBetter benefits and more support would be great!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great Teachers, Good Pay, Terrible Management

    Teacher (Current Employee)

    ProsThe families are wonderful to work with, and expect only the best care and education for their children, which we provide. My fellow teachers all have the same commitment and work ethic as I do,and are kind and caring. The salary is above average, we have full benefits, including childcare for our own children, at a 50% discount. We are very well known in the community, and have very long waiting lists for each age group of children, which pretty much insures that there will not be any employee lay-offs in the near future.

    ConsFavoritism and retaliatory practices abound within the lower levels of management, which affects the morale of all of the teachers. When issues were voiced to the managements' superiors, the problems were basically "swept under the carpet", and the teacher's who brought the issues up, were either demoted or categorized as being, "stressed", and "maybe needed a position, elsewhere".

    Advice to Senior ManagementVisit different schools unannounced, so that lower management can be observed in their true light. Visit each classroom and ask teachers for their input, positive or negative. Observe how teachers interact with the children in the classroom setting, and have a "meet and greet" with the parents. Ask the parents for their thoughts and recommendations on their child's teacher.

    A Place Where Professionals Regress

    Once A Professional At the Corporate Office (Former Employee)

    Proseveryone is in the same boat: the boat of misery
    decent benefits

    Consno professional development
    horrible turnover rate
    zero transparency
    horrible senior level management- awful management from the top down
    zero accountability
    zero employee engagement
    zero chance of advancement
    horrible favoritism
    unreliable

    Advice to Senior Managementcreating a healthy work environment requires commitment from the top: unfortunately a lack of leads to the current work environment: a place where many of your employees are miserable with no chance of advancement unless they leave all together. no wonder more than half of your corporate employees jumped ship.

    stay away from any opportunity to work here. like many others, you will regret it.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
