Current Employee - Lead Teacher in Edmond, OK
Current Employee - Lead Teacher in Edmond, OK

I have been working at The Goddard School full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Great ideas and wants to move forward

Cons

Not enough support from ownership, and teachers get away with too much. Being late 100 times a year is apparently no big deal.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop worrying about how much money you make a year and start being more concerned with the progress of the school or you won't have ANY money coming in because everyone will pull their children.

    Current Employee - Corporate Staff in King of Prussia, PA

    I have been working at The Goddard School full-time (more than 5 years)

    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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to the board of directors: Take a closer look and the root of the problem here at Goddard.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
