    I worked at May Institute full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    My supervisor was great, spent a lot of time and effort supporting me and my ideas. There are a lot of talented clinical staff working with the students.

    Cons

    Difficult to implement ideas because of red tape. Very loud environment, rapid turn over of staff, kids don't come to class because of behaviors so you end up getting put into ratio in classrooms too much. Very distracting, and was asked to do a lot of things that were not on my list of expected responsibilities.

    Advice to Management

    Better wages, improve voice for staff at all levels of company, more clearly defined roles.

    Pros

    Great co-workers to work with; working on improving how the HR department is handled.

    Cons

    The company culture is unclear. Communication is unclear. You hear one thing from upper management, and something else from direct supervisor. Non competitive pay and benefits. A lot of unhappy employees within the corporate office.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees issues and concerns regarding changes within the company. You want it to be a work place of choice, then you need to address employee concerns without them feeling that if they speak up, it will be held against them.
