    Pros

    Love the way the company is heading towards with curriculum for the children. Great for the children but not for employees

    Cons

    To much work for low pay. Management has a group of girls always in the office. Scheduling her friends off early and letting them do what they want. No set schedule for time out. Run.!! I left and never came back

    Advice to Management

    Do surprise visits on management, make sure they're not hiring their friends.
