District Manager

District Manager (Former Employee)

I worked at Knowledge Learning full-time for more than 8 years

ProsBeing a part of the bigger better part of a child's life.

ConsNone really, just had recent change in leadership that evidently did not have appreciation for the tenure of strong leaders within the company. They made a bad decision to eliminate a fleet of strong leaders based on their salary costs to the organization as a means of "making plan" by year end 2012. So sad. I was one of many that lost their job to this. A job that I was most passionate about and truly worked so hard at. I never had a day that I didn't not look forward to going to work. In fact, I looked forward to Mondays!!!!

Advice to Senior ManagementStop hiring senior management from outside fo the company and further develop and utilize the plethora of talent within. Presently, and most unfortunately, those that can politic well despite the "least" they do in their job each day, are the ones still employed. On my team alone I was aware of two DMs that rarely visited centers; spent countless days in their offices and had poor results but they are still employed. Go figure. It takes only a couple of "bad leaders" to kill a great organization but it truly takes an army of dedicated second line leaders and front line soldiers in center leadership to build it.

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