    I worked at Birch Family Services full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They hired you knowing that you have no experience in Microsoft and require work done in short time period w/o any help while saying that is ok if you don't have experience or knowledge of working on computer
    This is cons not pros

    Cons

    Fire you w/o any notification ( unjustly )
    Age discrimination w/o admitted,
    Claiming of job performance was poor while 30 years I was doing well under different agency w/o any citation, good job performance that I know well
    They pretend they are so professional but in facts their knowledge is limited and and they act on fear

    Pros

    The hours paid time off.

    Cons

    Working with a miserable set of human beings! You would think working with little ones you would expect to see smiling faces, everyone is mean and rude! I am not even sure if they like children or if they just want a job with benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Screen your workers/future workers properly. Cause it may be too late for the unionize ones to be ousted.
