What I like about the company

Working with children and seeing their growth is very rewarding for me and my co workers

It could be made easier to work with NCS and DFS if you work for both.

Company Culture

Very low morale. Would never recommend anyone takes a job here.

Support from management

Management is controlling and abusive. Creates a very hostile work environment for employees.

Teamwork

Within colleagues, teamwork is great. When management gets involved, no goals are reached.

Freedom to work independently

Management looks over your shoulder at every email you sent. There is no opportunity for independent work or growith.

Internal Communication

Tasks are dictated out by managers with no input from supervisors. When tasks are assigned, information is left out and kept secret. Employees have no input on goals.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Management would often say that older employees need to be fired because they can't do their jobs anymore. Management made fun of the disabilities of an employee.

Career Development

Management prevents training of employees even when the training is completely necessary.

Overall compensation for your work

The stress levels of this organization are unnecessary and not worth the compensation. I felt undercompensated with my educational background and work experience.

Office / Work Environment

The power frequently goes out in many of the offices because of poor wiring. Ceilings leak when it rains and snows.

Environmental Friendliness

Refuse to pay for recycling. Some employees who care about recycling will collect plastic and paper to take home and recycle.

Work-Life Balance

Managers will email late at night (2 or 3 am) and expect an answer within two hours. Unreasonable expectations.

Company Image

No. I wish I never accepted a job from them.

Job Security

No, jobs are fairly stable as long as you are not brought in as a temporary employee. Temporary employees are often "let go" without any notice.

Challenging Work

The work produced is often changed by upper management into something that no employee could be proud of. Oftentimes, management would remove any research-based information rendering products useless and harmful.

Inclusive / Diverse

No, any ideas brought to management are written off.
