    Pros

    ABCD, Inc. has the best benefits in the Human Service sector. Your skills do not have to match perfectly to be considered for most positions in the agency. The agency offers considerable professional development opportunities for early childhood teachers and teacher assistants. Employees are friendly and management is very approachable.

    Cons

    The agency is wasting money by guaranteeing yearly salary increases for everyone regardless of performance. Some supervisors could use more training in providing effective supervision. Consequences for poor performance appear to be non-existent in some departments. Opportunities for external applicants to be considered for management positions are very few.

    Advice to Management

    Please consider a tiered salary increase scale based on job performance. Management needs to have better expectations of all employees.
