    Pros

    Great benefits, schedule, health insurance, 410k for retirement

    Cons

    Minimum support for teacher, more demand toward teachers to work, less interest in protecting staff health went kids got respiratory infection

    Advice to Management

    The company should be more interested in conserving employees, and to encourage parents to take their kids to the doctor

    Pros

    Overall, this isn't a bad company to work for. The benefits are outstanding, although, they have gone up a significant amount this year, making them almost unaffordable. The families are great, and so is my staff. My school runs like a well oiled machine, and I'm very proud of what we have in place.

    Cons

    No room for advancement without a degree. Curriculum is extremely confusing. Executive directors are extremely demanding, and always needing something RIGHT NOW, even if you're not at work (sometimes when you're on vacation!)

    Advice to Management

    Allow staff to be promoted without degrees, if they have all the licensing credentials needed. You will loose great employees by leaving them at a dead end in their position.

    Pros

    I love working with the children and families.

    Cons

    E.D. in PA2 is totally incompetent. In the past, she has torn down items hanging in our school that are required to meet state certifications, but she doesn't like how they make the school look. She doesn't add any value - cannot help solve problems with accounting, payroll, HR, etc; if I have a problem, she tells me to ask another principal (who are all busy and rarely have time to do their own job, much less do hers too). She harps on paying O.T. even when she knows we are short-staffed (over state rations frequently), because so many staff are out sick or on leave. She keeps saying "we will get you staffed" but she doesn't do anything to help.

    Advice to Management

    Take a hard look at E.D. level positions and either determine who needs to be replaced, who needs re-trained for their position, or eliminate these positions entirely.

    Pros

    Great curriculum and wonderful teachers.

    Cons

    Upper management is detached from reality and has no idea what really happens in their schools. Upper management can be abusive at times. I worked over 50 hours a week and it wasn't enough. Its all about numbers and marketing. If you can't fill your school your are harassed. Upper management also expects you to put your job over your family.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your principals with respect. It is not OK to harrass employees. HR and corporate need to survey schools to check on the ED's. Watch out for unethical practices on the school level.

    Small class size and friendly coworkers.

    Cons

    Worst teaching experience I’ve ever had; education is not valued. It’s all about marketing and selling. Incredibly high turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Look at revamping your business model.
