Great owners, but compensation poor for newer employees and no room for growth

Lead Teacher (Current Employee) Sparks, MD

ProsWell known preschool, majority of the parents are nice, pretty clean, management usually gives praise for job well done and notices things teachers do to make their rooms better, nice coworkers, nice owners/managers

ConsThe new employees have late hours, many people are underpaid for the amount of work they complete in comparison to the amount parents pay for tuition, some co-workers are underachievers and are burnt out and they are still highly compensated just because they have been with the school for a number of years. College degrees hold no leverage.

Advice to Senior ManagementCompensate employees who actually do their jobs well and make the workload on teachers manageable. Fire people who have low work ethic even if they have been with the company for a number of years. Stop using substitutes for miscellaneous tasks and put them in the rooms to help teachers to prevent burn out. Hire a cleaning company. The cleaning man does absolutely nothing! He is worthless and they still pay him to do nothing. He doesn't mop, sweep, or vacuum ever! Management makes subs scrub bathrooms, the kitchen, and dishes.
