I have been working at Nobel Learning Communities full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Co-workers are great because we can all relate to each other especially with our hatred of corporate and our immediate supervisors, our frustration with the lack of communication and appreciation, and how after all that, we can all barely afford to pay our bills.

Cons

Very low pay, poor communication, no appreciation, daycare for staff is too expensive

Advice to Management

Try to show your employees you care about them and not just money. If you invest in and appreciate your staff they will work harder to up enrollment and represent the company well. It is especially sad that a main reason a lot of great teachers leave is that they become pregnant and cannot afford to pay for childcare with what they make there. That is plain disgraceful considering the nature of the business.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The kids are fun to work with. It's always great to help young children learn and grow as they develop new skills and knowledge.

    Cons

    Communication between staff and principal is awful. No one cares what the other person is doing, unless they are doing something of inconvenience for them. Staff is very negative about each other, students, and parents. People know what the minimum requirements are (not much) and skate by on doing hardly anything.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more competent, qualified teachers. Teachers should be able to speak clear English if that is the primary language being taught and focus more on communication between staff members since the same person is not with the children all day long.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    One pro is that I received very good professional development from ONE supervisor I worked under who is no longer there. 2nd, made good friends.

    Cons

    No opportunities for career advancement. Favoritism is commonplace by principals, which is really unprofessional and based on personality match, not on merit. Raises were frozen for 4 (four) years! Pay is equivalent to catholic school teacher pay -- but with horrible benefits. 3 days of sick pay per year. No personal days. Expected to work evenings for marketing/curriculum purposes (about 1 per month). Watch kids in morning AND recess. High insurance costs. No pension added to your salary. 401K that you pay into from your already very poor salary. Information sharing from principal to staff is very poor. (If you happen to be near the office, you may get the message.) CEO continues to get bonuses. Teachers work hard and are not paid to reflect credit for their work of trying to create a strong reputation for Nobel. After all , the CEO is NOT building the reputation! All of this leads to extremely low morale at school -- which leads to gossip and comraderie built on criticizing the school. It's emotional survival. Do not take a job here if you can. Or if you must, get out asap. Which is what most do and why turnover is extremely high with Nobel/Chesterbrook.

    Advice to Management

    Try making decisions with integrity and ethical behavior.
