    I worked at Catapult Learning part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Students you work with and pay is decent for part time work.

    Cons

    Company is poorly managed, high turnover, people in supervisory positions are not accessible and not qualified to have the jobs they are in, there is no full time work, no benefits, and supervisors do not listen when you talk to them.

    Advice to Management

    Offer full time work and benefits to employees and then you wouldn't have such a high turnover rate!

    I worked at Catapult Learning full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The hugs and smiles of the kids you work with

    Cons

    Not enough staff to deescalate situations, 1 teacher per 3-5 students with emotional disabilities who tend to fly off the handle and become abusive not only to the students but staff as well. If you aren't a part of the clique then you are a moving target. If you question whether the job is right for you or not, you get called by HR and are informed that you work for an "at will company". There are teachers and 1:1 aids dating, gossip about other employees, teachers that are not Pro-Act trained and yet stand there expect you to deescalate a crisis situation when they are the trigger! The director and upper management staff are by no means professional. They offer no support, no professional development to staff, nothing! They are not out to help these students, they are out for the money!

    Advice to Management

    Sit down with staff and create that open door! Make your staff feel comfortable so that they will discuss the problems going on within. Take a long, hard look at your directors and their personal relationships with their staff! Take a good long hard look at your 1:1 aids and teachers of the opposite sex!

    Pros

    Decent Pay, flexible hours great view

    Turbulent environment, people not very friendly, management needs to be more supportive
