    I have been working at Nobel Learning Communities full-time (More than a year)

    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!

    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

    Benefits, paid training, the children

    Cons

    They make empty promises. They do not pay well at all. Their main focus is the boards and pictures. They words say "children, it's about the children" but their actions shows it's all about the boards. The work amount and pressure is ridiculous for the pay.

    Advice to Management

    Your employees are not robots.

    Pros

    Great curriculum
    Great guidelines
    Great teachers

    Cons

    Horrible executive Director thinks she is better than her employees.

    Horrible training of administrators
    Horrible backup when problems arise
    Does not follow OJFS rules.

    Does not care about children's safety if it saves a dollar.

    Horrible gossip in upper management
    Loves drama between administration

    Advice to Management

    Gain a different executive director and kids campus director. The Columbus Enchanted Cares are under fire while they are in charge. They are very dishonest, and discriminatory.
