    Pros

    When you find the right center, the co-workers make for a great team including communication, flexibility, and friendship. Plus, if you love working with young children this is the right place

    Cons

    Management has poor communication skills. Upper management uses bad business ethics to solve problems. Promises for employees to move up to management, but have no guidance, not desire, to help make that happen. No proper training can get the teachers in bigger trouble than it's worth.

    Advice to Management

    Try making sure your directors and area directors aren't "friends" because they have a hard time facing facts to fix situations that improve business. I've noticed an area director attempting to hide bad situations under the rug and keeping the information from their supervisor. Human resources also does the same thing. There are road blocks in the company and makes for a revolving door of employees and families.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Knowledge Universe full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    work life balance was acceptable.

    Cons

    No pay increases. No bonuses 4 of the 6 years. Total lack of direction in spite of a tremendous amount of effort by senior management. They could care less about their employees you are truly just a number.

    Advice to Management

    Shake yourselves! You have deceived your employees and your customers into thinking you are a "Early childhood development" company. Reality is you are an over crowded understaffed daycare provider. Most of your centers are not clean and your facilities are old. Also I can tell by some of the positive reviews your HR folks are doing damage control. Stop it!
