Negative Outlook

I have been working at The Montessori School full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Best program in Chattanooga for children. One of the most rewarding ways to teach children.

Cons

When the person at the very top is constantly negative and telling every employee what they are doing wrong and never encouraging her staff and helping them work as a team it can really wear down on an individual.

Advice to Management

I understand you need to get your point across but there are nicer ways to do it. There is no reason your staff members are constantly on their toes and throwing other people under the bus because they are so terrified of getting into trouble.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at The Montessori School full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Being able to be a part of an unconventional educational experience, seeing children reach milestones, and summers off!

    Cons

    The cons of this job far outweigh the pros. Constant negativity from management is an understatement. Some incidents border on harassment. I have to wonder if the parents really know what goes on behind closed doors with staff, if they would continue to send their children to an establishment that is a complete farce. I have never been more bogged down by a job. The final push out of the teaching profession entirely. Extremely unprofessional behavior by staff and management.

    Advice to Management

    Look deep into the reason 6-8 employees turn over each year. That's a good start.
