    Pros

    Supportive supervisors and co-workers and access to professional growth and development; thorough (paid) training before starting the job, paid holidays and sick leave, well funded centers with fully stocked supplies, time given for prep work, job opportunities within the company are regularly posted and upward mobility is possible, Supervisors try their best to match your experience and interests with job openings

    Cons

    Tiring at times, but that's the nature of the job.

    Advice to Management

    Access to continued development and training opportunities counts for so much, please continue to offer these to employees. Consistently supportive supervisors and clear communication with staff made my experience here a memorable one.

    I worked at Child Development full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    This is a great starter job. The company provides a lot of training as a professional, taught me management and leadership skills, and to take initiative. I have always felt listened to when there was concern or if I wanted to explore a project. If you show compassion for what you do, you will be recognized (just not in monetary gains).

    Cons

    Out of the three years there, I did not receive a raise. I was only able to get a higher income in advancing from Assistant Site Supervisor to Site Supervisor, and another based on cost of living. Also, in the recent times, there has been a lot of turn over because of new management, which has started to lead to micro-managing.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management would be to invest more in it's employees, and finding alternatives to micro managing the supervisors. There is too much paper work that is required for supervisors to do that it takes away from them actually leading and running a center and planning events at the center.
