Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at The Goddard School full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Other teachers were supportive.
Team based environment.

Cons

Management at the franchise in Peters Township, PA.
$500 fee to leave your position without giving a 4 week notice.
Contract during the school year with a 2 month of wages penalty if you break your contract.

Advice to Management

Goddard corporate needs to look into how individual franchises are being run, especially ones with high employee turnover. There's a reason why people don't want to work for you.
