If you love working with children and care about their eductional outcomes, working at Elwyn SEEDS (early intervention) can be a very rewarding job. The pay is not great, but it is competitive with other employers in this field. Nobody gets into early childhood for the money, since the pay is low anywhere you go (unless of course you're a licensed speech or occupational therapist.) I have never had any problem with taking vacation time when I need to or using my sick days.
As with any company, there are cons. Management does not always seem in touch with the daily struggles that their employees face while on the job. Also, it is common for Elwyn higher-ups to make decisions in a "top down" manner, meaning the people who are actually affected by decisions are not consulted with beforehand to offer feedback, and we are usually the last people to know about any important decisions.
Overall, I would recommend working at Elwyn if you have a passion for early childhood and special education.
Friendly co-workers, rewarding work with children
