Pros

Good work/life balance. You don't have to take anything home when you leave at the end of the day.

Cons

Extremely low play, far less than the local public school system, results in high turnover. Low student motivation due to nature of business. Also, teachers may also have to perform janitorial duties.

Advice to Management

Offer competitive salaries.

    Pros

    No work at home, working with a population of students that need a helping hand. Great concept and ideas for education, BUT... (see cons)

    Cons

    ...This company is all about profits. It is hard to believe the people outside of the center staff care about these students. If they did, they would try to keep their best teachers and not promote yes men and women. They don't care about their employs at all. I worked there 4 years with no raise, while making 15K less than a first year teacher in the sponsoring district. The benefits are a joke, cost twice as much as the sponsoring district and are leaps and bounds worse. This company rewards incompetence and punishes those who actually care and are good at their jobs.

    Company loves data mining, and having everything recorded in multiple places. This is a complete waste of time for stuff who should be helping students, but are busy placing grades and other numbers in several locations, in different programs.

    Advice to Management

    Center staff is normally on the same page and work well together when they have a director who has a clue.

    Try taking care of your employees, giving them the support they need, and you'll be amazed they you are able to retain staff and improve the company culture.

    Pros

    Great co-workers and students who really need you.

    Cons

    Poor to non-existent technology in a technology school. No resources to speak of and most extras in the classroom are out of pocket.

    Advice to Management

    Start spending some money on your employees and provide resources to your centers.
