Not a place you can grow and develop
Teacher (Former Employee) –  ILJune 29, 2014
This place is the worst of the worst. You will work hard for very little compensation. There are no annual raises. There's always an excuse given as to why this can't happen. Senior management is nonexistent, and very rarely communicates with its employee's. There is no insentive to stay, and they don't attempt to even think of one. You'll receive the daily "thanks for all you do" email, but that's about it. This is definitely a place you want to avoid. The classrooms lack resources and the company will do little to assist you with your teaching needs. They're more concerned about scoring big contracts with school districts versus actually helping the population they serve. You'll be made promises that won't be kept, so don't get your hopes up here.
Pros
helping kids who need it.
Cons
everything

Are you ready to work hard for your students?
Math Teacher (Former Employee) –  Savannah, GAMay 15, 2014
I worked at the Ombudsman Accelerated Program as an 8th grade math teacher for a short time. I was with the students from 7:15 am until 3:00 pm with only a 30 minute lunch break.
There is no planning time allotted during the school day. Most of a teacher's planning and grading is done on their own time. The program uses a computer base curriculum but teachers have to supplement lessons and CRCT review.
All subject area teachers are expected to help with Math and Reading programs and review for all CRCT reviews.
Pros
place to make a difference
Cons
be prepared to work hard for little compensation

Be Prepared
Director (Current Employee) –  AZApril 14, 2014
Have your eyes open when you take the job. There are many moving parts and expectations of you. You can do a lot of good here but take it slow and shore up your gains before you move on.
Pros
great kids that need you. great co-workers.
Cons
it is difficult to get all the toys you need for the classroom. nature of the beast.

Lead Payroll Specialist (Former Employee) –  Corporate offices of ESA,Inc - Nashville TNJuly 26, 2013
Working for ESA,Inc was a wonderful company to work for. I started with the company almost from the beginning. The company hired its first employee in fall of 1999 and I was hired in October 2001 at that time it was still just a fledgling company. I worked in the corporate offices of the company and co-workers were a great plus in company.
Pros
great co-workers wonderful environment and opportunities for advancement
