    I worked at Kennedy Child Study Center full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Working with a great teacher staff

    Cons

    No advancements whatsoever. Very Disturbing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Bronx board director should have an excellent relationship with his or her staff. Also teachers shouldn't have their salaries docked before deciding if he or she can work during the summer time. I have known for a fact that minority teachers are under paid compared to caucasion teachers.

    Pros

    The best part of working here was the time off. You need those days off in order to maintain your sanity.

    Cons

    Upper management (a.k.a the 6th floor) is dishonest and engages in shady business practices - often hiring friends and family members who lack the required experience and New York State certifications for classroom and leadership positions.

    Compensation needs to be re-evaluated. Staff is paid far less than they would be at other schools.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time to get to know your employees, compensate fairly and consider qualified internal employees for promotions instead of hiring unqualified friends for management positions. They are not "beneath you." They work hard often in understaffed classrooms, get paid little, and still manage to make this a great place for the kids who attend the school.
