    Former Employee - Office Manager in Bridgeview, IL

    I worked at Fraser full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    After learning the business, I was trusted to do my Office Manager job in m own way. The office was 5 minutes from my home. The three owners/brothers were like additional big brothers to me. I felt like I was contributing and loved that they could depend on me.

    Cons

    Lack of business caused them to have to cut my hours to part time. This was not feasible for me so I had to leave.

    I worked at Fraser

    Pros

    the kids and families
    flexibility in schedule
    not micromanaged

    Cons

    pay
    the way they treat their employees
    upper management/supervisors
    their priorities are screwed up

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    start looking at the turn over rate and treat your employees like you care what they have to say and listen....there is turnover for a reason

    I have been working at Fraser full-time

    Pros

    Amazing families and kids. Coworkers are great, easy to work with, encouraging, supportive. Great place to develop/hone your clinical skills.

    Cons

    Clinician caseloads keep growing larger, making practitioners burnt out, stressed, and unable to be the best clinician they can. Supervisors want to be helpful, but are overloaded as well and often don't listen to feedback from those actually working with clients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to make more money by overloading your clinicians' caseloads. You are losing people left and right, and for the people that are still there, morale is low and they feel taken advantage of.

    I worked at Fraser full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Co-workers to vent to. Amazing children and families.

    Cons

    Terrible management who treats their employees with little respect. Limited cultural competency in the upper management who do not put client needs ahead of billing and money. Zero flexibility in scheduling and very few advancement opportunities. Overall incompetent in running a large non-profit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the employees who are making suggestions for how the company could be run better--they are the ones doing all of the work.

    Former Employee - Teacher, Preschool in Richfield, MN

    I worked at Fraser full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fabulous co-teachers, families and children; Pay raises each year; Grants from Target and other local businesses

    Cons

    Had to demand breaks that were required by law several times; Minimal flexibility in scheduling; Hard to obtain time off for medical needs; Volunteers who were not qualified or helpful; High-stress environment; Building falling apart; Mold, rodents, bugs; Cleanliness of facilities; Toys were accrued through donations and were not necessarily in working condition; Ratios of students with special needs to students with typical needs were too high for the support the classrooms received

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put the children and staff first. In order for there to be success and happiness within the school, the teachers and children need to feel valued and safe. Providing enough support to the teachers will help you retain employees instead of experiencing the high rate of turnover and uncertainty of staffing in your classrooms.
