    The RU - Pros and Cons

    Pros

    The University has a great medical insurance plan, with he choice of two options: The Rockefeller University Choice Plan or The Rockefeller University Managed Care Plan. The University has great center that provides developmentally appropriate early childhood education for the youngest members of the Rockefeller community, beginning at age 3 months. The teachers at the center patient, caring, and personable. As a full-time employee, if you're attending school in your field of study, the University will reimburse 85% of the total tuition charges, registration, books, and necessary supplies.

    Cons

    As a teacher at the center you will not get the support needed from administration. As a teacher at the center you'll start to feel undervalued but what teacher doesn't feel undervalued. The philosophy and culture has changed. As a result, if you have an opinion or thoughts on how things can change it will be ignored.

    Pros

    School philosophy of using the Developmental approach to teaching. Children are loved and cared for at this center.

    Cons

    Long-time teaching staff tends to be obstinate, preferring the easy way out - often recycle curriculum ideas; are not open to new techniques nor to subordinate's ideas. This place has great potential, directors are experienced teachers but unfortunately do not have a business background and therefore do not have management know-how. There is inefficiency in all areas especially with the hiring of inept, lazy workers. It would be wonderful if directors would recognize hard workers and hire from within instead of giving priority to the inexperienced and clueless.
