    Pros

    The benefits are good and the CEO is a very nice man. He is kind and hard working.

    Cons

    The field operations are a mess. The COO is out of touch with what goes on a daily basis in the field. All that matters to her is self-preservation and self-image building. All that the COO does every day is play mind games with staff. The growth rate of the company is taking a nose-dive by the day under her leadership. Everyone knows the reality but no one dares to speak up due to fear of being black-listed and terminated by her.

    Pros

    The Goddard School meets high standards of excellence. Every classroom plans age appropriate activities. School is NAEYC accredited.

    Cons

    The Goddard School does not pay their teachers well at all. Lead teachers with a college degree still make less than $10 an hour.
