    I have been working at Learning Care Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    In the industry for the right reasons- children and families. Even though they are a larger company, things still feel small and personable. The corporate level isn't above or out of reach to the field employees. They are for profit but truly invest back into their schools. They are constantly making improvements and advancements to be a leader in the field of early childhood education.

    Cons

    Salary and the bonus structure for directors isn't competitive enough or in line with all that they do in that position.

    Advice to Management

    Promote more from within and encourage that.

    Pros

    Working at Learning Care Group is great! We celebrate success in many ways. I've worked for a couple different companies in the past but none that recognize the accomplishments of their employees as much as LCG. I truly feel that Support Central (Corporate) cares about the children, the employees and the schools. Everyone is very friendly and always willing to help. It's amazing how many times I hear people say they've worked here for over 10, 20, even 30 years. One of my favorite aspects is the collaboration between departments and the opportunity to work on projects. This is a growing company and it’s exciting to be a part of trying new things. I highly recommend LCG.

    Cons

    I hope someday to have a match on our 401K. Also, which I think is true with any company, communication could be better. I hope to someday have an app where we can communicate with all employees.

    Pros

    Learning Care Group has friendly, supportive staff in every department. Upper management takes the time to get to know employees. Awesome culture!

    Cons

    The cons of Learning Care Group are: No 401K Match, comparatively low compensation to other companies in the area, not much time off around the holidays, and PTO - cannot carry over or cash out.

    Advice to Management

    401K Match

    I have been working at Learning Care Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Learning Care Group has a great culture, provides flexible hours, and is a fun environment to work in. LCG created the iCare Foundation which helps employees of all brands when they are in need, and allows employees to have dress down days because of it. Their highest priority is focused on employee experience, which includes newer technologies, fun activities, and ease of day to day work.

    Cons

    Does not currently have a defined work from home policy.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working on building a better employee experience at both the corporate and brands. The initiatives that the company focuses on are great for our company and the future. Keep it up!

    Pros

    Growth opportunities are great at Director level or lower positions.
    Tries to create fun work culture
    Benefits are ok if you must take them

    Cons

    No matching 401 k
    No room for advancement and promotion opportunities are filled with hand picked candidates so internal application process is a joke

    Advice to Management

    There are many good people already in your staff ranks. Take the time to get to know them and allow them to grow in the company.

    Pros

    My pros aren’t many, except that I love the kids I get to work with.

    Cons

    -Poor pay.
    -The center I work in has low staff so we work ridiculous hours on top of the poor pay.
    -This is a very corporate ran center.
    -Don’t believe the hype of competitive pay or room for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Offer more money.

    ""Corporate" Care Group"

    I have been working at Learning Care Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It is easy to form long-lasting friendships with coworkers. The company allows "dress-down days" and themed weeks to keep things fun and interesting. Obviously, teaching children has its own rewards as well.

    Cons

    Learning Care Group is incredibly corporate. Everything revolves around paperwork and documenting every single detail. The love and compassion for children is easily lost in the process. The pay is quite frankly depressing, with very little room to grow or opportunity for significant raises. Incredible, hardworking, dedicated coworkers have had to threaten to quit numerous times just to receive the pay they deserved. Everyone's hours are constantly cut to accommodate management's favorite employees. Budgets are extremely low, there never seem to be enough supplies for the whole school. I was only a part of one school within the Learning Care Group, but from conversation with other employees from other schools, these issues span company-wide.

    Advice to Management

    Please put the "care" back in LCG.
