    Current Employee - Ed Tech III

    I have been working at Spurwink Services full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Able to make a difference in a kid's life. The paid time off is adequate and the day ends at 3:00 pm. The culture is laid back and the staff work well together under extremely stressful conditions.

    Cons

    The wages are lower than average, adequate health insurance is out of reach unless you are willing to pay very high insurance premiums. Upper management seems unconcerned about wage and/or benefit increases.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Annual wage increase and better health care options.

    Doesn't Recommend

  2.  

    Easy burnout/emotionally mental exhaustion
