    I have been working at Kennedy Krieger Institute full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Kennedy Krieger is committed to its patients and students. The Institute always has the latest and best therapies, teaching methods, and technologies. Kennedy also offers good benefits to its employees.

    Cons

    Kennedy is less concerned with employee satisfaction and well-being. It is not uncommon for staff to feel over-stretched and unsupported from administration. There are high turn-over rates for paraprofessionals and teaching staff because of this.

    Advice to Management

    Keep all employees in the loop with regards to changes in their employment status (hours, wages, etc.). It is unfair to expect good morale when employees are regularly deceived and lied to about important information. Treat all employees with respect and do not diminish their experience because of corporate arrogance.

    Pros

    every child is unique with very different personalities, most of them being silly and uplifting - makes the job much more worth it at the end of the day despite being a tiring job

    Cons

    monetary compensation could be better but the tuition reimbursement helps


  10. It is an experience like none other.

    I have been working at Kennedy Krieger Institute full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    This place is somewhere that I am proud to say that I work. Awesome environment, great experience for future jobs, wonderful co workers, positive place. I love what I do. I love the fact that I am helping out an environment that so many people choose to either neglect or walk all over. I love being an advocate for my kids.

    Cons

    I am here for the benefits of tuition reimbursement and the experience. It is somewhere that I love, but would love more if I got paid what I was worth. I know SO MANY people that are making at LEAST 10 thousand more than me a year, doing the same thing, if not less than what I do.Severely underpaid, and sometimes I hate the "politics" of the job.

    Advice to Management

    Increase our pay! We do so much work for this place! I think we should be getting paid what we deserve. Luckily, we love what we do....we wouldnt be here otherwise


  11. A great learning experience
