I have been working at Ombudsman Educational Services full-time

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 ManagementAdvice

Offer competitive salaries.

    I have been working at Ombudsman Educational Services full-time (more than 3 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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

    Ability to directly impact kids educational future

    Cons

    Constant changing of policies and curriculum.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In order to hire and most importantly keep good staff members you have to be competitive in the market that you are in. If not then you have constant turnover and the progress of the center and most importantly the kids will not happen.
