      I have been working at Kaleidoscope Education Solutions full-time

      Pros

      *Wawa is at a walkable distance.

      Cons

      This is not a place to make a career. The guy who manages the company has literally no clue as to what his employees do most of the days. There is no agenda, no goal or a plan for the week. Most days are dictated by how the boss feels and what he wants to work on but it has nothing do with a structure. Three people manage the guy to keep the office running the way it should. They micromanage to a point where you...

      I worked at Kaleidoscope Education Solutions full-time

      Pros

      None, besides receiving a paycheck every 2 weeks.

      Cons

      It wasn't a pleasant experience to begin with. You're spending two weeks at most training with the Delta T Group's (parent company) corporate trainers. You train on their material which is mostly irrelevant for KES. There is no direction , constant micromanagement and a unhealthy corporate culture. This company has their favorites and if you aren't one of them, you'll be on the fast track to the unemployment line. You...

      Pros

      By far, this is the best company I have worked for. The Managing Director of the organization is seasoned and so knowledgeable. He is behind his staff and is always there to answer questions (open door policy). The company is growing tremendously and we have a fantastic reputation in our industry. We have proven ourselves. If you are looking to further your career, management will welcome that and work with you...

      Pros

      This is a growing company with real opportunity to earn a more than great living. It's not easy and not for everyone. Hence some of the negative feedback from former employees who are disgruntled. It's easy to blame management and not accept accountability after not meeting expectations in a position. To be successful in this industry as an employee it requires work, dedication, and a positive attitude. It's unfortunate...

      Cons

      Growing pains for a small company is normal but also means communication could improve from top to bottom.

      Advice to Management

      Conduct background checks on employees the same as you would the contractors. Continue to be open minded in regards to new markets, ideas from recruiters and staffing coordinators, and praise the success. The employees who feel appreciated will always perform at a higher level.

      Pros

      I have been working at Kaleidoscope Education Soulutions for over a year now and have nothing but positive things to say. On a daily bases you are given the opportunity to help thousands of special needs children. Kaleidoscope has a team oriented family atmosphere. The Managing Director will always support his employees and go to bat for you when needed. You certainly get out of it what you put in. I have read...
