    Pros

    The purpose of caring for the wellbeing of children is what keeps you going.

    Cons

    Expect frequent reorganizations, low employee morale, limited opportunities to advance, almost nonexistent professional development.

    Rethink the strategy of selecting managers by getting employee feedback instead of placing friends of management in these positions. Also, work on setting priorities for teams.
