    I have been working at New Haven Public Schools full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    automatic pay raise with the passing of each year, nice vacation time 10-week summer

    Cons

    Be wary of what part of town you are in. Administration can be unrealistic and blame the teacher when their is no help to address behavior issues.

    I have been working at New Haven Public Schools full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pretty good benefit package, laid back environment and some supervisors are easy-going. Is a good place for someone at entry level. The work week is 35 hours with an hour lunch break and 2 - 15 minute breaks. Free parking, fitness room and snack machines available to employees.

    Cons

    Heavy workload without comparable compensation. Not a good place to work if one is looking for advancement. Advancement is very difficult and little to no reward for hard workers. Too many employees in an office/work area. Favoritism is given to some clerks/secretaries. Work load is the same as an administrative assistant.

    Advice to Management

    Support staff (secretaries/clerks) should be paid based on their experience and knowledge as well as appreciated more

    I have been working at New Haven Public Schools part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    One of the best things about working for the Board of Ed in New Haven are the people I work with and the students I coach.

    Cons

    Sometimes it takes a long time to get things done but not often.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people in the schools
