Disapproves of CEO

I worked at May Institute full-time (More than 5 years)

High turn over rate. No raises unless promoted.

Advice to Management

Focus more on good staff, most of the people who work there past 5 years just last longer.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at May Institute full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Experience Earned leave Benefits Staff that sticks together to get through the day

    Cons

    Pay doesn't equal the workload No vacation breaks such as winter, spring break Management doesn't understand the work that takes place in the classroom Difficult work environment - children can be aggressive and staff are routinely injured Frequent turn-over (2-3 months)

    Advice to Management

    Acknowledge the needs of your staff - raise the pay and listen to staff concerns. Don't keep accepting new students when the current students aren't properly staffed. This adds to staff stress and there's enough of that as is.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at May Institute full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Tons of opportunities for training and development - Excellent clinical leadership - Accessibility of management on all levels - Benefits - Incentives for longevity - Opportunity for advancement across the agency, not just your primary program - Opportunity to work in multiple programs simultaneously - Improved communication from the top down

    Cons

    - Salary (however, over time, salaries increase as benefit costs decrease - just need to wait it out) - Reduction in tuition reimbursement - Mileage reimbursement

    Advice to Management

    - Continue to keep open lines of communication with all levels of staff. I am happy to see people in higher positions are more approachable in the past 2 years than ever before.
