Pros

The location of the school is great. You are right next to downtown Pasadena and their wonderful resturants and places to shop.

Cons

There is no room for advancement. They would tell people that they are being promoted and give them new job titles but people were forced to keep the same pay. The school was bought by the The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. TCS has just recently fired many employees and Pacific oaks has fired many of their employees also. Many new people were hired but are not qualified for their job. They run the school like telemarketing business not like a place school

Advice to Management

Try to bring up employee moral. Many people are not happy with their pay or benefits but there is other ways to make employees happy. Bring back the company parties to help bring moral and hire people who are capable of during their job.

    Pros

    In hopes that new blood can keep this great institution afloat, bring it back to the incredible history of many years gone by.

    Cons

    Unfortunately for the past 14+ yrs this incredible school has gone through some tragic transitions. The past admin dragged it through the mud. The future of this once great institution feels very unstable.

    Advice to Management

    Look back at 1990 when this school was shining, rich and busy with students trying to enroll. Bring back this foundation, this vision, this incredible model for early education that was known throughout the country.


  2. One of the best job opportunities and professional growth path of my career
