    Portsmouth Schools have poor management Teachers afraid to speak up in Portsmouth

    Teacher (Current Employee)

    ProsLocation, on the seacoast and Portsmouth is a fun town.

    ConsTop down management style
    Problems are ignored.
    Favorites are evident.
    No compensation for working hard or doing a good job.
    Communication is poor when questions are asked.
    Teachers are reprimanded if they question authority.
    Priorities are set at the top not allowing employees to voice what should be a priority.
    Daily schedule has some days with no breaks - teaching 6 hours with a 20 minute lunch.
    Kids don't seem to come first.
    No oversight or peer, parent or student review system.
    No evaluation of programs that have been instituted.
    New programs every year with no evaluation of old programs by faculty to see what is working and what isn't.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to employees
    Weed out incompetence
    Hire smarter people
    Force principals to react to teacher requests and acknowledge them.
    More collaboration to point out problems that need fixing.
    Use common sense.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
