    Pros

    Great connection with the students

    Cons

    too strict
    working with previous after-school programs this has been the worse experience ever management is horrible love my direct supervisor but everyone else seems to believe that the THINK Together way is the ONLY way.
    No room for freedom and creativity
    Do not allow you to be a true leader just a simple soldier to do everything the THINK way

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create an environment in which your team can grow as leaders and have more than just the love for the kids as a reason to return.
    Create real opportunities to grow beyond Lead PL.
    Provide extra compensation for Lead PLs more work for the same amount of money does not show your appreciation at all.

    Pros

    You are constantly reminded why you work for such and low salary and put in so many hours. At the end of the day, you dont do this job for anything but the kids.
    I have nothing good to say about this company...

    Cons

    Salary:
    After being with THINK Together for over 5 years the highest raise I've received is $300... annually. Many people have a conception that the lack of raises or pay increases is due to a limitation on funding allocations by the state or funders. When in fact a site coordinators salary is not considered to be part of salary allocations, but part of program operations.

    You don't get paid what your worth.

    Supervisors:
    The Quality Assurance Coaches all seem to be given a pedestal upon being hired. You are constantly watched, looked down on and spoken down to by the QACs regardless if they are your direct supervisor or not.

    General Manager:
    At the end of the day, they are only looking out for the companies name and reputation. You will be tossed around and thrown under a bus when it come between you or a school relationship.

    Monthly Awards:
    All BS, it seems the majority of people rewarded in this company are those you put on a happy face but are in fact awful at their job. It is extremely difficult to sit back and watch many people receive awards who are highly undeserving and who I know I've probably done more of their job for them then they've done themselves.

    Favoritism:
    As long as you kiss enough rear end you will pretty much et away with murder.

    I could name current employees who have broken policies with no reproductions, including;
    Having sexual relations with their employees for an extended period of time,
    Sexual harassment against women including crude comments and inappropriate touching,
    Targeting specific employees for termination,
    Ill-lawful and forceful termination,
    Part-time employees being ASKED to work off the clock,
    Part-time and salary employees forced to spend money out of their own pocket for program supplies,
    Supervisors creating a hostile work environment for those who work below them...

    Appreciation:
    You wont get any! You will always know what you've done wrong but will rarely be recognized when you do something right. If you accept a position with them, just know, your only doing it for the kids.

    It is so sad to see a company with such a great mission have so many people with such poor morals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring Sue Cornell Back!
    She is the best thing that ever happened to THINK Together and in my opinion, the company went down the drain when she left.

    Stop playing favorites and actually listen to your site coordinators. We aren't complaining if it's the truth..don't take the QACs word for it, do a TRUE investigation.

    People don't say anything due to fear of retaliation... say what you want, but we all know it happens. Why would I go to HR and let them know I'm being harassed by my supervisor if I know all they will do is give them a slap on the hand and I will still have to work under them...??????? The company creates enough of a hostile work environment as it is, the last thing anyone would want to do is make it worse for themselves.

    THINK Together does not condone sexual harassment or harassment of any kind in the workplace, nor do we ever make program leaders work off the clock. THINK Together is committed to providing a work ... More
