I have been working at Knowledge Universe full-time for more than a year

Pros

The lower management and the teams that are built are good to work with.

Cons

The Chiefs constantly work towards cutting costs with things such as forced vacation during Christmas, multiple attempts to outsource any and all employee positions to foreign countries while creating a ruse of job stability, going for the cheapest and most useless insurance program available on the market (at least they provide that option).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Without your employees, the company would not function.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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

    I have been working at Knowledge Universe full-time for more than 5 years

    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 ManagementAdvice

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