    I have been working at Right At School full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    + The company is mission driven
    + Creativity is supported and encouraged
    + Managers and leaders of the organization genuinely care for their staff and it shows
    + flexibility with hours/wfh when applicable
    + the company is filled with really smart, kind and humble people. You'll make friends for live.
    + while the company is growing it is not becoming a hierarchical environment
    + like that the CEO is so accessible. He literally sets up time to speak with employees through out a calendar year and not just in the central office
    + the company provides transparency
    + the company has made positive investments that direct impact the Right At School team

    Cons

    - It's fast past which I enjoy but may not be for everyone.

    Pros

    Great support from the WHOLE team, not just your direct supervisor.

    There is a real emphasis on maintaining a healthy work/life balance.

    The program we deliver is researched and TOP NOTCH, it's so easy to work somewhere when you have an amazing service to offer that really makes a difference.

    Top executives are available and not out of reach.

    You get to play with kids in a fun and engaging way! AND GET PAID!

    Cons

    The after school schedule can be awkward to navigate.

    Advice to Management

    Brace your selves as you continue to grow, work ahead of the demand.

    Pros

    The leadership team is amazing !. Leadership cares about your personal and career growth. You can always reach out to anyone for assistance when need be. The program curriculum is amazing for kids. The structure and curriculum helps prepare students not only in school but also in life as they get older.

    Cons

    It's a start up company so depending on your job title you will have a lot of responsibilities.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work !!

    I worked at Right At School part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The pay can be decent if you have some experience and education.

    Cons

    Lack of organization, resources, and adequate training. Unclear and unfair disiplinary system. Rigid in their transfer policy--they rather lose you as a worker than move you to a program/team you are better suited for, that wants and needs to have you there.

    Advice to Management

    Area managers need to get way better at training, preparing, and supplying program managers and educator teams. The level of expection is high, while the resources needed to reach those expections are low or nonexistent. Maybe allow for transfers when employee conflicts arise, rather than force hostle work environments. Protect new employees from the runoff of past employee conflicts that have nothing to do with them. And last but not least, when someone quits, give them an exit interview and get very specific feedback, especially when they ask for one!! You're growing too fast to be losing good workers to poor management.

    Great after school hours, can go to school while employed due to flexibility, awesome working with kids

    Cons

    Program manager would say one thing while reporting a different thing, had to follow their script otherwise you were doing terrible.

    Advice to Management

    Have educator be able to grade program manager as well. Overall, be honest. Don’t say something and then do another.
