If you do not fit into their mould of yes sir no sir don't apply
Educator (Former Employee) –  Queensland19 April 2017
this company only looks after their upper management, They do not like to spend money on centres that are not in their special selection.

Their HR team are very unprofessional. They will sell your centre without telling you.

were good to work for before they decided to get too big too fast and then crapped themselves at the mess they got into and then had to be saved by Anchorage....whom if you researched are even less to be desired to work for.
Pros
if you suck up and not say anything and become a yes person then this is the company for you
Cons
do not care if you put in 12 hr days. No PD. Strips budgets to a minium

Head office
Finance Manager (Former Employee) –  Brisbane QLD4 February 2019
Working in the head office was a ok place to work.

The IT structure failing almost daily added to increased stress levels
and the IT department representative showed little knowledge or care.

the company has many other benefits, although I am not sure these benefits are fed down to the child care centre staff.

Workload required staff to work over 12 additional hours a week to manage and meet management expectations. Understaffing is an issue in some departments.

The company only recently brought in a mental health program following my recommendation, however, little implementation has occurred.

Staff and colleagues are quick to stab you in the back when things go wrong.

only stayed as long as i did because they overpay the staff

A very disappointing experience
Teacher (Former Employee) –  Brisbane QLD31 December 2018
Started working at Affinity due to the wonderful philosophy of the manager. After the manager changed, so did the culture at the centre. High staff turnover and occupancy halved. Profit was their primary concern rather than the education and care of the children. HR need to listen to the concerns of staff on the floor rather than managers who can talk the talk
Pros
The vision of Affinity Educatin Group is inspiring
Cons
Their vision is not possible when profit comes first
