    I have been working at STAR Education full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working for STAR and with STAR is a real treat. Their programs help improve the lives of children all over Los Angeles. The office atmosphere is very laid back and everyone is very friendly. All of the employees are helpful and engaging! I have learned tons about managing people and organizing events working for STAR.

    Cons

    The parking at the offices is very limited and you must own a car to work for them as the schools are all over Los Angeles.

    Advice to Management

    Please buy more parking space!

    I have been working at STAR Education full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Every day is a new challenge. I invite the variety problem solving skills necessary to preform my job. I have learned a lot about myself, and what I am capable of because I work with a dedicated and diverse team of people who are willing to hold each other accountable, and tow the line.

    Cons

    Sometimes life is stressful, but it is always rewarding. However, the incentives for employees to stick around for the long term are not very enticing. There is a high turn over rate among the instructors that work for STAR, but not everyone is committed to education and being an youth mentor.

    Advice to Management

    Expectations are difficult to fill when you don't have the tools necessary to complete the task.
