I worked at Mary Cariola Children's Center

Pros

It was great to see the children improve every day to become more independent. The close bonds that co-workers had made the organization a great place to work at since we all had a common goal.

Cons

It's a non-for-profit. Movement in that organization which is similiar with other non-for-profits that career mobility is stagnant. Even though it was a great place to experience a wide range of topics it was always perceived as a stepping stone. It was very difficult to give input to senior leadership. Change like in any place is tough to accomplish.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more open minded. Show your appreciation to the employees. It is not the money that keeps them around it is truly the children who make the difference.

    Pros

    -The children are absolutely amazing and inspirational
    -Co-workers form tight-knit teams and do what is best for the kids

    Cons

    -This school is ran by people who DO NOT value their employees- frequently tell them they are replaceable and that their opinions and the job that they do does not matter
    -NO PAY RAISES- claim "the budget" is why...however employees who have been there for 10+ years make the same as new employees...you will not get cost of living increases so really you are getting a pay cut every year.
    -Benefits are TERRIBLE....almost like not having a benefit plan at all

    ADVICE: Find a district job where you will be respected...compensated..and have much better benefits!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your teachers, TAs and clinicians are the most valuable part of your agency... show some appreciation and respect for all that they do for those kids... the environment you have created is toxic and morale as a whole is dismal.

    Great teamwork, doing good things for children.

    Children can be difficult, but that is to be expected. Not much room so substantial growth.
