    I worked at THINK Together part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Wonderful experience, hands-on learning to adapt with kids with all types of needs.
    -Nice to see and evaluate different schools. You get to lead at most part and be creative to an extent of the programs taught.
    -The S.E.S program (in my opinion) was the best compared to the after school program.
    -Great for self-starters.
    -Great part-time in the afternoon.

    Cons

    -No room for advancement.
    -Your work goes unnoticed and unappreciated towards your growth in the company or any other positions for that matter.
    -You're just another worker at another "job", even if you wanted it to be a career, you're treated as a worker at McDonald's.
    -A lot asked of you on your job. More than what the pay is. And sometimes you "have" to take your work home even when your manager says you can't (You can't finish the amount of work they give you to do with the restricted time frame you have to clock in and out. You cannot work more than the allotted time given, no exception). This is with all different managements I've worked under.
    -Limited resources to improve.
    -Limited management and training

    Advice to Management

    Advice to HR and Upper management:

    Train your SCs (Site Coordinators) better. There are a ton of Program Leaders that does the job of what an SC is suppose to do, while SCs delegate important non-PL tasks. This isn't towards one SC, but many SC's I've worked and "spied" on like a "mystery shopper". SCs can delegate tasks when needed, but not give their workload to PLs and when it's time for review the SCs does not even know how to do their corrections and attendance, etc.

    Been working with the company since it's first bloom, and worked at many sites. Some sites have it nailed down, and many others just does not compare to the basics. Many GREAT leaders are turned down in job positions just to be favored by non-great leaders because of connection.

    KNOW who is valuable, and who IS committed. Don't just give positions to someone you favor because they're funny and you communicate well with. Their job ethics and how well they do it is better than your great companionship you have gained with them over the years. Doing this will cause less turn-overs and less of finding new employees to repeat the cycle...
