    I have been working at Playworks full-time

    Pros

    Playworks philosophy of healthy community, healthy play, inclusion, and respect is apart of every day culture. There is not a day that I dread going into work. We celebrate each other's gifts, accomplishments, and passions. We have secret handshakes, eat lunch together everyday, and we simply believe in one another. It is a unique and beautiful work environment where we are all working toward a common goal: to create opportunities for safe and meaningful play for every kid.

    Cons

    I will update my review when I think of one =)
