The children and parents are challenging.

I love working for my company as they embrace the ever- changing society.

Company Culture

The team that I last worked with was amazing! My coworkers were such hard workers.

Support from management

The team that I last worked with was amazing! My coworkers were such hard workers.

Teamwork

We were expected to work as a team on everything we did.

Freedom to work independently

Our employers trusted most workers to work independently but some workers very very much under a microscope.

Internal Communication

We had weekly staff meetings and newsletters that informed us of upcoming expectations.

Gender Equality

We had a very diverse workforce, with the majority being women.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Older employees were very valued and looked up to for advice and support.

Career Development

There are ample opportunities to advance, if desired.

Overall compensation for your work

Compensation was average.

Office / Work Environment

Our building was very well maintained. Temp was appropriate and technology was up to date.

Environmental Friendliness

Recycling was encouraged.

Work-Life Balance

Work life balance was poor, in my opinion. We were expected to work late, at home, and on the weekends.

Company Image

Our company is considered the second best in the state.

Job Security

My position was very stable.

Handicapped Accessibility

All facilities are handicap accessible. An elevator was provided to get downstairs.

Workplace Safety

Plenty of training to maintain safely. Doors locked once closed & badges were needed to open them. Visitors had to be buzzed in.

Challenging Work

Our work was very challenging. Having children on differing academic levels in the same classroom was very difficult.

Inclusive / Diverse

Our workplace valued diversity greatly.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I can't think of anything that needs improvement other than more support from the public.

What I like about the company

My company was a fun place to work. The people that worked there were very supportive of each other and would help out in any way possible.

What I dislike about the company

The work hours were long and having to work at home was also a negative.
