    I worked at STAR Education part-time

    Pros

    It's nice because you get to design your own classes. It's a good experience to have under your belt if you want to get into education.

    Cons

    Negative atmosphere. Not compensated well. Borders on creepy and cult-like. They have required "volunteer" hours that you need to do, so that's interesting. They don't respect your time. This is especially bad for part-time employee who have other commitments.

    I worked at STAR Education full-time

    Pros

    Working with kids. I've been a teacher for many years, and the students that are part of the program are great. Wonderful students.

    Cons

    CEO is crazy and terrible at her job, she will fire anyone for any reason. You are completely expendable here - they don't care about keeping the employees happy. They will give you cake instead of a raise.

    Advice to Management

    Change the CEO. This company will continue to be under-performing as long as there is an incompetent CEO. This family may not be any good at running a business.
