Working here is a roller-coaster ride.

I have been working at National Children's Center

ProsWe do important work with individuals with developmental disabilities. The people who work here are, by and large, very committed to their work. It's a labor of love. If senior management has faith in you they will allow you a lot of freedom to do your job.

ConsThere are a lot of employees who are there simply because they've been there for years, not because they're good at what they do. There is not enough honesty and direct communication from senior management - too much is hidden behind closed doors. Senior management seems to either tell you what they think you want to hear or shades the truth.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe open and honest. Don't hide behind your office doors and act like you are wizards because the staff think you are cooking up ways to fire them. Be aware that talented staff members are leaving because they don't trust you. Recognize the talent that exists within the organization and nurture it. Care more about your highly-skilled employees and compensate them fairly.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Leadership is opaque and unfocused

ProsGreat place to work closely with people with developmental disabilities. You can make a difference here.

ConsLeadership is scattered in their focus. Everything happens behind closed doors and is sprung on the staff. Many direct care and lower paying positions have been eliminated in favor of higher paying leadership positions. Leadership has little contact or relationship with the staff or the people the agency serves.

Advice to Senior ManagementPay attention to the people who work for you. Pay attention to the people you serve. Leadership needs to get their hands dirty and get into the buildings and work.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
