    I have been working at Community Development Institute Head Start (More than a year)

    Pros

    It's not super challenging and there's a decent level of flexibility if you have other obligations. Overall, it was an alright experience.

    Cons

    While you don't come into this line of work for the money, it was still below average. Which means it's a struggle! While management tends to be nice, many I feel lack experience and nearly all lack leadership skills. Many decisions could not be justified when asked, which made working here difficult at times. (which then lead to a compliant, but very apathetic worker).

    Advice to Management

    Make the right decisions and be fair. And then stick with your decisions. Often, there's just too much favoritism going around.


  2. "Nice and friendly colleagues and average-to-low pay"

    Pros

    Other employees are nice, friendly, and working towards a common good cause (nutrition and health education for children from low-income families). Work is fairly straight forward. Up-to-date office technology. Great management staff (no micro managers :))

    Cons

    Pay rate is average-to-low. Generally, work is not extremely challenging.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! CDI Head Start is a great place to work. Consider offering more competitive pay as funding allows.
