    I worked at SESI full-time

    Pros

    The kids and teacher are often great. Good pay great benefits. This a good place if you can work as team.

    Cons

    Management doesn't have enough experience to problem solve doesn't listen to staff who work directly with other staff and students. Often lets serious issues go such as reports of prejudice behavior from management toward staff. At the time most of the management team worked for themselves and not for the betterment of the company.
