Disappointing and disheartening as an employee

Senior Staff (Current Employee)
Ellicott City, MD

ProsThere are no "best reasons" to work at the Children of America in Ellicott City, Maryland

ConsInexperienced, self-absorbed center management; concerned about shaving work hours and saving money for upper management. The children ARE NOT the primary concern as they should be in a child CARE center. The "care" is all about cash

Advice to Senior ManagementVery simply -- spend some actual time in classrooms; like an Undercover Boss. See what your teachers go through in an average week and help standardize care across classrooms. A standard operating procedure manual would make everyone's work so much easier with uniform care across the classrooms. Each classroom has a different style, depending on the teacher's abilities. Everyone in our center is still using their cell phones on a regular basis, including to set up and maintain outside babysitting for the families in their classrooms. Conflict of interest? You bet!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
