I have been working at Children's Home + Aid as a contractor (More than 3 years)

Pros

This company does good work. It helps bring programming to kids who are less fortunate. You get to network with other schools and share talents and ideas.

Cons

Most instructors hired to do programming do so as contractor. As such, one only gets paid once a month and have to take care of their own taxes.

Advice to Management

It would be great of you could offer the availability of being hired to your contractors.

    I have been working at Children's Home + Aid full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Some flexibility in adjusting schedule as needed

    Cons

    Management doesn't care about staff anymore. They hired a ton of executive level people but never enough front line staff. They manipulate lower levels to get the most money possible with no concern for the level of stress this can place on workers. Pay is lower than most any other agency. No room to advance in many areas.

    Advice to Management

    GET OVER YOURSELVES AND PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR FRONT LINE STAFF!!! Give up some of those $300K salaries to hire people in areas that staff are needed.
