    Pros

    They are very flexible with needing time off or being late to work. There is a lot of overtime if you need it.

    Cons

    The outtings may be all day so I would plan ahead just in case. Emergancy visits also can be all day.

    I worked at Jawonio (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The children, location, parking availability, some of the consumers and co workers

    Cons

    They don't care about their employees only about making a profit! You can work hard for many years there and still be set up to fail so they can fire you. Low pay, no support, limited time off and if you take your vested time you're made to feel guilty about it, poor training for support staff, the list goes on and on........

    Advice to Management

    Treat your hard, long time workers with more gratitude and respect! Instead of what your employee can't do tell them what they do well and they'll want to work harder. Provide the support needed and be open to change.

    Pros

    Super low expectations so you won't stress yourself out. If you need a job, anyone can get a job here.

    Cons

    Management can't do performance reviews. I worked under a senior manager who is clueless on how to do a fair objective performance review. Spend less time gossiping in your fellow managers office and spend more time learning how to manage. It's not bad enough that apparently no one here has received a raise in 5 years but we can't even get a fair review and HR is so incompetent that they are useless in the process.

    Advice to Management

    Since you're real good at employing lazy supervisors, how about training them? Train your managers how to manage and be fair and objective, not biased. Get rid of the ones not doing their job even if they are your "pals". Enough with the cronyism.

    Pros

    People (most) are very friendly and kind.
    The work is very rewarding because you are helping others who are very needy.
    The young children can often be very cute, funny and great fun to work with.
    I laugh almost every day at something cute or funny that a child does or says.
    The benefits are okay, but could be better.
    You get 12 sick days and 4 personal days / year, which is a nice amount of days.

    Cons

    Pay is very low and there is little chance for growth or advancement. However some people have been known to transfer to other departments.
    The work (while rewarding) is demanding physically, intellectually and emotionally.
    Teaching assistants are reviewed by their cooperating teachers rather than the principal. Since cooperating teachers do not have supervisory certification, they should not be doing the reviews.
    Clients can be verbally and physically abusive and one needs to know how to handle these situations calmly and effectively.
    Working with young children is not always "fun".
    The health insurance benefits could be better. The dental and eye is not expensive but not very comprehensive, either. And the medical insurance co pays are very high. The salary is make is not enough to afford co pays for on going treatments - like physical therapy.
    While you get a nice amount of sick days, they accumulate 1 per month. If you get sick and need to take several days, you end up taking days without pay because you have not accumulated enough days yet.

    Advice to Management

    Only management should be able to write reviews and rate the employees, not other employees.
    Make sick days available all at once.

    I worked at Jawonio full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Being part of a company that works to help those in need. Nice health benefits and PTO.

    Cons

    Terrible upper management. Not sure how some of them made it to the top. No room for growth. No raises. Low salary.

    Advice to Management

    Reward those who actually work hard. Get rid of deadweight upper management and replace them with fresh brains.
