    Company is okay, but upper management in the daycare is cut-throat

    I worked at Science Center of Iowa full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Co-workers are great and bennies are good

    Cons

    The director and other upper management were a complete nightmare. Weekly staff meetings consisted of the director choosing one employee to completely tear apart. There was nothing constructive about it, it was cruel. The woman is on a power trip and has no idea how to manage people or build a team atmosphere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As long as the head of the daycare is so lacking in people skills, good employees and astute parents will not want to be a part of this program.

    Pros

    The mission of the center itself is a reward

    Cons

    Unstable choice of employer, frequent turnover of senior management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Become financially stable to sustain the experience, and reward employees with what they deserve in compensation.
