    Pros

    Teaching students who otherwise would not attend school is the most rewarding part of working for AMIkids. Watching them grow, both educationally and personally, is worth every moment.

    Cons

    School is year round, with no breaks other than Federal Holidays. Teachers make less than the county they work in, and work more hours. There is little incentive to keep teachers at schools.

    Advice to Management

    AMIkids leaders would benefit from offering more incentives to their staff. Whether it be half a day off for employee of the month, to a simple "great job today!"

    I worked at AMIkids full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great opportunity to change lives of lower SES adolescent males.

    Cons

    Non-profit organization means that the legal side looks at money more than employees and youths. VERY HIGH employee turnover rate due to family's dealt with.

    Advice to Management

    Manage care for dedicated employees who care about making a difference with interest in money.
