    I have been working at La Petite Academy full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    It looks good on a resume. Benefits for full time workers. My pay is decent (although I have heard complaints that some teachers get paid terribly.)

    Cons

    Management picks on employees and cares way too much about gossip. They will call an employee in to the office just to tell him or her that another employee said this or that about them. They have made several workers cry. The schedule for teachers (lead or assistant) is inconsistent. One day I might go in at 8:30 and the next day at 10:00 and I am a full time Lead teacher!! They will not stand up for you if a parent complains about you. All they care about is money and enrollments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees right...compliment them every once in a while. Support them and choose to believe the best of them.

    Pros

    Hours are good, kids are awesome, flexible to get time out.

    Cons

    Schedule always changes, pay is so little, one day it's Ok to do things next it's not. They go with what best suites their needs at the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make permanent schedules, so we are not guessing what we are going to do through our the day!
