I worked at Ombudsman Educational Services

Pros

Lessons are computer based making it efficient to teach several grades at the same session.

Cons

Lack of teacher computers made it difficult to complete work. Lack of privacy made it difficult to have confidential conversations with staff, students, and guardians.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat your teachers as if they matter.

    Pros

    Your able to help kids turn their

    Cons

    Teachers, social workers, and whoever else thats not in management are paid as if they don't have life expenses. Pay is very, very, low but to top it off you can work there for 5 years and still never receive a par increase. The senior management from operations managers on up treat employees as if they don't matter. They're too concerned about getting another district contract and big pay out and then never reimbursing the staff who's in the trenches with the students on a daily basis. They're philosophy is that the students matter, but if you as an employee bring anything to their attention that would better help the students then they pretend as if it can't happen. Most of their centers are in disarray and are poorly run, i.e., students with their feet kicked up on the desk, listening to ipods, cussing and swearing, at fellow students and staff, and students walking around with hats on. The operations managers who are over these centers do a poor job of managing them and covering their butts as to make it look like everything is under control. If don't believe me then visit one of these centers for yourself. I would definitely suggest this to all "district partners" as they call them. You rarely receive any kudos, or positive feedback from senior management, but they are quick to ask you questions about your ideas and take them and claim them as their own ideas. Overall the work environment is not welcoming and not acknowledging of its hardworking employees. I wouldn't recommend this place to my worst enemy, okay on second thought maybe I would.
