Support from management

Lack of support especially when it came to any issues with the parents.

Workplace Safety

There are many cases of mold and poor air quality/air-conditioning

What I like about the company

You were there at the liking of the school owner, there was very little recourse if there was any kind of a conflict with parents it administration.

What I dislike about the company

The pay was low and the benefits weren't very good, you could do much better at another private school are even more at a public school.

Company Culture

The company definitely does not contribute to a work climate of fairness and trust

Support from management

The employer absolutely does not involve employees in decision-making, and in fact, will make decisions and expect it to be carried out without discussion

Teamwork

The employees were lovely and work well together

Attitude towards older colleagues

Long term workers are not valued and appreciated, and are often let go so that they may bring in younger, cheaper workers

Overall compensation for your work

Wages are extremely low, benefits are getting a little better

Office / Work Environment

A/C never seems to work properly, always hot or freezing.

Work-Life Balance

It is expected that employees show up for most school functions and they do keep track.

Company Image

The image does not reflect reality. The company is very, very good with their marketing, but morale with workers is very low, and talk amongst employees is almost never positive about employer

Job Security

Your job is never safe at this school. The turnover rate is horrendous. As many as 10 firings in a year during one of the years I worked there. They average 3-4 firings a year and will tell the employee that they "aren't Sagemont material."

Handicapped Accessibility

There is two elevators for the disabled.

Workplace Safety

Working conditions comply, but there is no training to ensure an accident-free workplace

Suggestions for improvement

  • Let teachers have more say over their curriculum and the ways they teach it. There is too much nitpicking, and there is way too much power for the parents and students to dictate what happens in the classroom. Parents and students have too much power and the administration does not support the teachers if there are parents that complain too much or loudly.
