    I worked at National Association of Child Care Resource & Referral Agencies full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The association is focused on quality child care for all children. Very talented team of mostly women who work their butts off to push the quality child care agenda forward. Executive Management has changed hands several times and weathered the fall-out that comes with change.

    Cons

    Executive Management was never able to communicate the vision of the association after leadership changed hands. Consequently, many excellent staff left for other opportunities or became disgusted and quit. The association lacks focus. There is absolutely no diversity at the executive leadership level where company policy is developed and implemented.

    Advice to Management

    Promote women and minorities at the executive level. Professionally develop women into leadership roles and hire more minorities. Be bold and fair.

    Pros

    CCR&R's are a great way to help invest in children and families. Making a difference is a great motivator.

    Cons

    Not the best pay and can be political at times

    I worked at National Association of Child Care Resource & Referral Agencies full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The only pros was speaking with the families on the phone.

    Cons

    Too many to name. I got this job through a staffing company and foolishly took the job. Biggest mistake of my life. First off, everyone who works there is fairly young, meaning that they have very high turn over. I was only there for about 3 months and 3 people quit randomly. The amount of work that you do is insane! Training was a joke.


  5. "High turnover rate, but decent place to work if you can stick it out"

    Pros

    Good benefits package, including health insurance, transit reimbursement, and retirement savings contributions. Ideas are generally encouraged and proper praise given to those that deserve it.

    Cons

    Some departments are funded by government grant, which can lead to times of panic when funding may be lost and layoffs need to occur. Power-hungry management occasionally makes questionable decisions for no discernible reason but to prove their upper hand.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring technical people without input from other technical people. Treat ALL employees with respect, not just favorites. It is inappropriate to strongly encourage employees to join your organization as a member and pay dues.
