    Pros

    The kids are the best, the people I have met and work with each day are amazing, the administration is supportive and has a great philosophy and commitment to families & education, the facility is clean and well kept, and resources are abundant - I can't believe I actually get paid too!

    Cons

    brrrrr...the cold upstate NY weather!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open more! Thank you for listening to what the employees want and being reasonable and saying yes when you can!

    Pros

    Semi-flexible work schedule, great kids

    Cons

    No raises, horrible pay, made to feel easily replaceable, stupid rules, cant keep employees therefore there is never enough people to cover breaks and bathroom breaks, usually have to stay past scheduled time due to no coverage with no OT or compensation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need a new director! One who is actually IN the office and not always on the phone! One who follows the same rules other employees have to follow (ex. clothes, phone policy...)

    Pros

    hours are school hours so they are nice.

    Cons

    Its a who you know company, if your related or in with the owners and mangers great you can be a total looser and move right up. If your a good worker and care about the kids, don't complain about the inept workers the cant do there jobs because the managers will fire you! After all, they are friends of theirs.

    The benefits are not for the anyone except upper management those that do the work don't matter. The management tells its worker right up front " you can be replaced very easy".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your totally incapable of treating people fairly, sell the company and don't afflict any more employees with your unfair ways and methods. There is no hope for you, as you are whats wrong with this country.

    Pros

    Wonderful staff, children and families to work with on a daily basis. Staff is hard working, and dedicated. This is not just a job to me this is my second home, a place where I look forward to being! Leaders are always flexible and willing to offer guidance whenever needed.

    Cons

    The turnover rate can be tough, but you will see this at any job and rate of pay is a turn off for most which can be difficult.

    Dead end job with no appreciation for hard workers.

    Pros

    Nice co-workers and kids. Several locations to choose from. The Baldwinsville location is great, but the building issues and parking situations leave a lot to be desired.

    Cons

    Horrible pay, no training, no expectations laid out, poor management style, too much work for no recognition, poor moral throughout. This is "just a job" until you can find something/anything that's better. It grew to be extremely hard to want to go to work every day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train managers to manage. Plan ahead for staffing and schedule changes. Treat employees with respect and fairness. Recognize good workers. Provide annual reviews and pay increases. Fix the problems in the building, like the recurring raw sewage smell, bug infestations, roof leaks, etc.
