Pros

Company is very big on promoting within. If your performance is up or above standard it is very easy to advance within the company. Training is provided to ensure that you are providing quality education to the children. For the most part, achievements are acknowledged and rewarded.

Cons

Long term employees are allowed to get away with murder. DMs who don't provide the necessary support to their subordinates is in turn supported in shifting blame to their subordinates. Corporate does not listen to the anyone below the District Manager level when it comes to improving schools or employment issues. Work you like a dog and then fire you without any remorse.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Tenure should not equal ability to manage.

    Pros

    If you enjoy working with children, you get to work with children and teach a good curriculum, some paid holidays.

    Cons

    Low wages, very little vacation or sick time, lousy benefits, difficult and often unpredictable schedules, lack of support from management, disrespectful management, lack of promotion possibilities, no respect for family/life balance, they hire people who don't actually like kids and the work is just a job to them, which drags down the good teachers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your teachers like professionals and not just bodies filling a position. Respect your employees' home lives and don't throw a fit when they ask for a day off.

    Spend some time in teachers classroom and see what we do everyday, quit coming to us only when a parent is upset and keep teachers informed.
