    I have been working at Head Start

    Pros

    The good feeling of being able to help others. It is a great program for the low income families. There are some good people that work there.

    Cons

    Low pay, upper management don't want to deal with problems that arise at the Centers. They pass it to someone else and is a vicious circle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to the complaints of your staff. Don't allow bulling in your Centers and when someone calls you with a problem please take care of it. There is a lot of waist of money so eliminate all the unnecessary traveling because most of your employees abusing the system so they can claim mileage. Make sure the managers and supervisors are doing their job?
