    I have been working at Goodstart Early Learning full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - If you find a good team, its fantastic. - Great if management likes you. - Moderately flexible hours, especially if part-time.

    Cons

    - No career advancement for my position, even though I have put in hard work and proved myself. - If you get a bad team, it will make your life living hell, even outside of work.
