Company Culture

Fairness & trust are words rarely used there.

Support from management

Constant discord between board of directors & employees. Board not in tune with realities of the organization.

Teamwork

Some teachers worked well together but conflict was daily in every department.

Internal Communication

Earnest effort was being made to improve communication but again, between the BOD and employees it was very challenging.

Gender Equality

Again lack of funds proved to be a huge factor in discontent.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Non-stop grievances against co-workers.

Career Development

Due to the type of work mandatory trainings were regular but due to lack of funds teachers were mandated to train on Saturdays without compensation.

Overall compensation for your work

Due to lack of funds wages were low compared to responsibility and education levels causing lack of enthusiasm. Some were overpaid based totally on years worked versus ability.

Office / Work Environment

Severe lack of funds had a big effect but most teachers opened their purses to make things better for the children.

Work-Life Balance

Always trying to make sure enough teachers are available to have two per room. If a teacher couldn't get a day off because another teacher was out they would call in sick.

Company Image

Most employees were malcontent, only arriving because "it's a job".

Job Security

You could lose your job on the whim of a board member who didn't like you.

Workplace Safety

Located in a crime riddled area cars in the parking lot were sometimes vandalized. Board did not see the need for cameras and other security measures.

Challenging Work

For those who truly cared about their work the results were very good.

Inclusive / Diverse

Not at all.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Fire all of the main board members (President, Vice President, Treasurer) and start from scratch, giving the parents an opportunity to participate in who gives directives regarding the folks who work with their children. Also much more fund raising to alleviate the financial burden of depending on DSS and parents not making enough to cover any of the expense of child care.

What I like about the company

I liked seeing the children and working with most of the parents. The ED was great. I felt like I was contributing to families who were struggling to raise children and earn an income.

What I dislike about the company

In general the Board of Directors were ignorant regarding the workings of the Center and the people it serviced. None of them lived in poverty nor anywhere near the inner city the Center serviced. Most of them were narcissitic "do-gooders" who cared more about being able to say they were on the board of an inner city day care than doing anything to address the real issues. The board members who saw this usually left within 6 months or less.

Suggestions for improvement

  • FIRE THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS AND START AGAIN, FOR THE SAKE OF THE CHILDREN THAT NEED THE CARE. THE BOARD IS TOTALLY INCOMPETENT.
