Rewarding but challenging
Afterschool Director (Current Employee) – Madison, WI – February 4, 2018
This will likely be both the most rewarding and most difficult job you'll ever have. The hours can be long, there is no shortage of problems to solve, and procedures and rules constantly change.
I started out loving my job and ended up being so ready to leave because of poor infrastructure, a ridiculous workload for the level of compensation, and very stressful work conditions.
MSCR is a great stepping stone to other opportunities, but most directors do not stick around for a long time because they end up feeling underappreciated and burnt out.
meaningful work, lots of opportunity for autonomy and creativity, excellent benefits
poor leadership, lack of appreciation by superiors, unreasonable workload
