Pros

Some great people and, depending on the department, smart, competent people that have a desire to do good things for children

Cons

Too political and bogged down in upper management's slow decisions make effective change. Too much fear in the masses to make effective change

    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.
