    Pros

    Knowledge Learning Corporation was a very good company to work for. They were a fair employer. They cared about employees. Cared about children. Had very good benefits. Good pay.

    Cons

    The company was great, but they were bought out by KinderCare and relocated to Portland, Oregon. So, the corporate offices were closed, and I was laid off.

    I worked at Knowledge Learning for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Flexibility to work from home while managing and overseeing programs made an ideal work environment. Employee benefits as it relates to child care were great!

    I worked at Knowledge Learning

    Pros

    I loved everything about working at this place. They quickly recognized my potential and I was able to train in the field of Early Childhood Education. Till this very day, I consider that time to be one of the most enjoyable times in my education career.

    Cons

    There are no cons other than long long hours.

    I have been working at Knowledge Learning full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    tuition reimbursement, top payed compared to other child care centers, people you work within the classroom have the same opinions as you do. the company is world wide so if you want a transfer it seems possible.

    Cons

    you only advance in the company if you the right color, the trainings are a waste of of time. the employees opinions and suggestions are tossed to the side and the parents are in control. Expectations to come to work during state of emergencies is outrageous. Lack of supplies is embarrassing. kids are allowed to come to school sick and contagious.,

    I have been working at Knowledge Learning full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Although working in the corporate offices is distancing from the company's true goals, it is nice knowing that we, through the thousands of teachers and center directors in the field, have the opportunity to positively impact so many children and families. It can be very rewarding work.

    Cons

    Depending on the department, work life at KU can vary quite a lot. The senior management has been talking about working harder to retain talent and help people in their careers, but I have yet to see it.
