Very fulfilling to work with and help children, families, but disappointed by the "higher ups" who work in the office.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsThe kids! Period! You must love children and not be judgemental or impatient. But if you love kids, and want the best for them, it's a good job. They do have benefits, and good working hours. Your schedule matches public school systems.

ConsPoor management in Central office in Morristown. They are out of touch with the realities of the day to day challenges the staff in centers face. And they do not seem to care. There is also alot of red tape and regulation that sometimes do not make sense but this comes with the fact that it is a state funded job. Also, sometimes you see people who should not qualify for the program be admitted anyways, and there is not much you can do about it. I saw a very high income person who put a child in to get free daycare. They lived in a large expensive custom home and drove expensive cars, but because they were not married, the mom qualified. Marriage shoud be taken out of the equation of deciding who needs help! Seeing abuses like this make it hard but if you just focus on the kids, you will love working with them.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
