Poor management, no advancement potential and extreme favoritism

Teacher (Current Employee)

I have been working at Children's Home + Aid full-time for more than a year

ProsI have met some great co-workers and have bonded with many families, I have learned a few things along the way

ConsAdministrators look the other way while people play the system. Breaks are inadequate. There are some teachers who have no concept of child development yet seem to run the place. Parents run the show, policies are not followed and "at-risk" or low income people should not drive luxury cars and have iphones.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your staff and don't let a few bully the rest. People may seem qualified on paper, but in reality have no business working with defenseless babies. Your next employee might be the one to finally call DCFS.

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