    Pros

    This was the best first job that I could ask for! The staff was like a family. Management was very respectful, and always willing to help their employees. Working with children was such a blessing, and I am sad that I had to move! Pay was over minimum wage.

    Cons

    No company is going to be perfect! Thee was sometimes confusion with scheduling, but even that wasn't much of a problem.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! And thanks for all that you've done :)


  2. Great kids
    Bad employer

    I worked at Discovery Point Child Development Centers

    Pros

    Get to work with kids ages 0-5
    Great environment for learning to be a caretaker or early childhood education majors

    Cons

    Seems that a majority of the employees are mothers with little other work experience and a tendency to ignore newcomers and won't help you with anything then gripe about how the newcomers don't know anything
    Hours are NOT flexible so it's not a good environment for students

    Advice to Management

    Don't alienate your employees and if you have a grievance with an employee do faze them out by abusing their schedules and waiting for them to screw up because you made it impossible to work there

    Pros

    Team itself ~ overall was good

    Cons

    Office culture was prone to favoritism, extremely unprofessional and lacked leadership from both Assistant /Director to owner's rampant lack of scruples.
    No incentives, growth or values, in fact- owner was lecherous with maintenance personnel.

    Advice to Management

    Sell or revamp entire upper management to weed out familial and/or personal interests.

    Pros

    I love working at Discovery Point because the management and staff are awesome and very supportive of me continuing my education. The management positively recognize their teachers efforts and they pay a certain percentage of child care for your child.

    Cons

    Even though they have dental and health benefits, they do not have 401k and other retirement benefits. This is not a job you want to retire from. It is crucial that you continue your education so you will make more money and explore other future opportunities in the Early Care and Education field.
