    I worked at Nobel Learning Communities full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fun boss, friendly work environment, year round employment.

    Cons

    The principal was not able to treat the employees fairly. I was hired as a Teacher's Assistant but never assisted the teachers in the classroom. I ended my employment with them as Camp Director and technically as an Administrative Assistant but was never given an official title change or raise. Very hard to move up in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Take a management course.

    I worked at Nobel Learning Communities full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great relationship with the teachers I managed.

    Cons

    There is no growth opportunities, field and corporate office disconnected. There is a lot of turnover over worked and given very small raises 2.5% and under. The benefits are not that great.

    Advice to Management

    You have many that have been in position for over ten years that are corrupt and give your Principal's very little support and not job advancement. You love to have people do the job with giving them the title or the pay. Invest in your schools and keep them modern.

    Pros

    Strong curriculum based program fosters a great learning environment where strong ECE professionals can flourish.

    Upper management can have disconnect with field management. Initiatives are rolled out with little regard to increased workload and decreased productivity.

    Advice to Management

    More support needs to be provided to field management.

    Pros

    The management was pretty good and relatively supportive. Unfortunately, I cannot think of any other pro other than the management.

    Cons

    The pay was very low in general. The company needs to look at their pay scale and employees may want to stay a while if they do.

    Advice to Management

    Increase compensation and employees will want to stay

    Pros

    A small paycheck is coming, every two weeks They're still open which is shocking to say the least! The bathrooms are clean....they have electricity

    Cons

    EVERYTHING! Your first week of working here you'll want to jump out of a window if you're a good worker. If you're a slacker, you'll thrive here!

    Advice to Management

    Step down! Hire upper management that won't give up on staff that do their jobs, take interest in what people are saying, do your own job and stop blaming your problems on staff that come to work. Don't be passive aggressive and blame good employees for the shortcomings that you have. Do your job yet again. If you want to gossip, don't be surprised when it gets around. Stop telling everybody everything. Hold staff accountable to a real schedule and don't let them run it. Hire staff that will come to work. Make the executive director hear problems that are persistent. Stop putting teachers over ratio. Stop overloading teachers in rooms that are over ratio for age. Stop giving teachers any schedule they make you give them. Just stop!
