    Pros

    I enjoy working at TES for many reasons:
    1. We’re making a big difference for children and young adults with special needs. Our teachers and therapists provide individualized support to truly allow for great progress.
    2. We have a committed, supportive team. No one has to make a difficult decision alone and finding the perfect solution is always easier when working with our dedicated team members.
    3. We work hard, and play hard. I love that we attend community events and host fun activities outside of work.
    4. We share knowledge. Parents, schools, and staff receive necessary training in order to make the best impact in their role. It’s amazing to see parents in therapy sessions, learning strategies to transfer into their home.
    5. The leadership team listens to our feedback. When I have a concern or suggestion, I feel heard and valued. TES welcomes suggestions, but moreover, solutions.

    Cons

    Because the majority of our team works in the field at multiple locations, we may not see each other on a daily basis. With that said, we get to make wonderful connections with our clients and their staff. I’m glad we have regular trainings and meetings to allow face time with the TES team.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to seek and implement employees' feedback and suggestions. It's great to feel valued and appreciated by the company!

    Cons

    Nothing really to say here.

    I have been working at Total Education Solutions full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    choosing own hours, opportunity to work across different settings therefore you get more experience in the field you wish to go into

    Cons

    i can't think of any cons except for the fact that supervisors take SO long to respond. there's not a lot of interaction between team members and supervisors (which i understand because this job requires everyone to work at different school sites) but i've come to a point where i find it ridiculous that supervisors can't respond to a simple email for DAYS. be considerate and let someone know if you need more time to research, think about it, instead of IGNORING. makes me question if this company is worth growing my career due to lack of upper management support

    Advice to Management

    hire supervisors who actually take on the SUPERVISORY ROLE. don't give this position to people who have the same work title as us, they clearly can't handle the extra responsibility of responding to emails

    I worked at Total Education Solutions full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    TES is a great place to work, especially as a new grad. The supervision is incredibly supportive and you are thoroughly trained. TES recognizes hard work and makes staff feel valued. They respond to emails quickly to answer questions or concerns. You have access to many assessments and therapy materials and they provide paid summer training. I had a very positive experience with TES and recommend them to anyone.

    Cons

    You don't work directly with many people from TES unless they also happen to be placed at your site; however, I still felt like part of a team at TES as well as at my school.

    I have been working at Total Education Solutions full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    This company recognizes hard work and is always looking to grow employees whether they are providers out in the field, or staff within the office.
    They also encourage and support furthering education. They are flexible and work with you in regards to schedules that accommodate your school schedule. There are a select few that have been in management for many years. I feel this is to our advantage as they have seen the changes throughout the years and based on their knowledge and experience, I trust their decisions.
    Lastly, I do not have a family of my own, but I do see children at the office here and there and really feel that this company is family friendly. They respect the work/family balance that so many other companies overlook.

    Cons

    I do feel that there are times when people leave and positions are filled as "band-aids" rather than keeping positions vacant until a qualified individual fills it.
    As many others have stated, I don't feel that salaries are competitive and raises/increases are very few and far between.

    I have been working at Total Education Solutions part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They have offer a very flexible schedule.

    Cons

    You have to fill a lot of paperwork. The pay rate of 17 an hour for tutors has remained on lock. You have to drive a lot to the students homes. You have to turn in your paperwork every month to the main office.
