    Pros

    Global kids Inc. is a fun filled organization with great pay and benefits for full time staff. The employees are very diverse and are full of life.

    There could be more structure in the organization and they should thoroughly inform staff of what their responsibilities are in their position. Part- time staff is laid off during the summer season.

    Pros

    It is a small organization that fosters a friendly environment and provides valuable support for the students it works with.

    Cons

    Because it is a small organization, it is hard to advance through the ranks. You are more likely to get a change in title than in salary.

    Advice to Management

    Create more opportunities for employees past and present to develop professionally in the form of conferences, seminars, and support with graduate education expenses.
