Pros

Being in the field and making a difference for children is very rewarding work

Cons

This company constantly requires you to do more and more with less and less - it is vitually impossible to have a life outside of work because you must always be available.

Advice to Management

Dont say you are about the people and then lay 100+ people off every year - and if the office building feels more like a morgue you should ask yourself why

    Pros

    I believed in creating a world of learners. The curriculum that is offered is of a very high standard, and they provide great child care benefits to employees.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the industry isn't well regarded for paying well. The company has seen significant leadership changes over the last 5 years. Leadership often focuses on the bottom line which leads to short term decisions with long term repercussions.

    Advice to Management

    Please focus on the long term health of the business rather than making short sighted decisions to inflate the bottom line.

    Pros

    Believing in the education of the children

    Cons

    Company is all about the bottom line. You are literally just a number to them, and if they want to scale back your gone, if you don't hit your numbers in the centers your gone. They state they are about Employee Engagement, but when people constantly wonder if they are next how can morale be high and Employee's be engaged?

    Advice to Management

    None- They don't listen anyway. Its all about the numbers to them.
