I have been working at Perfect Playground

Pros

The only pro is a flexibility of work hours.

Cons

Loads of paperwork that is required in order to get paid is enormous. They pay once a month but before it happens, each Speech Language Pathologist working in school setting has to fill out dozens of pages of session notes, updates, billing forms, etc and print tons of pages. So, if one has about 20 students in the workload, one has to hand in over 120 pages of paperwork and this is required every month! The time is taken away from the therapy. The pay is low. While they take a very generous cut out of the hourly rate that is paid to them by the Board of Education, they still make us do all the paperwork. And the paperwork is just getting worse and worse. At some point I will have to leave the company as I can not bear the amount of paperwork that is required.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reduce the paperwork, you are making it impossible for us to enjoy our work. Also, offer at least some health benefits for people of the contract.

    I worked at Perfect Playground as a contractor

    Pros

    1. They make sure that the ever changing NYS DOE regulations are met.
    2. Pay is actually competitive with other other agencies.
    3. They have holiday parties.

    Cons

    1. They can be pushy about taking on more contract work and to take on work at places that I would prefer not to work at.
    2. They have meetings about things that could be conveyed via email.
    3. The meetings may be located in Manhattan or Staten Island which is not always easy for employees to attend.
    4. Only payed for face to face with the client. No pay for the huge amount of paperwork that needs to be done. I have since worked with other agencies that do pay for paperwork time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Only have meetings when information can not be conveyed with email.
    2. If you must have a meeting allow for others to attend electronically.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule and that is about it.

    Cons

    Too much paperwork, little time for actual therapy, little pay

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Since you are taking over 30% cut from the hourly rate paid by the board of education, at least do not steal our personal time that we have to send on outrageous amounts of paperwork
