    I have been working at Noble Network of Charter Schools full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great learning environment, awesome kids, always challenging, and full of ambitious, young instructors.

    Cons

    Lack of employee retention due to high stress and perhaps to over-accountability and too much structure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find ways to make the work environment not only conducive to learning, but also to keeping high-quality instructors happy (i.e. creating more work-life balance across the network)!

    Pros

    Superb culture. Discipline issues are minimal or non-existent. Teaching is actually going on! Certain campuses have you engaged full throttle, with a Powerpoint and the expectation for you to teach the lesson in the teacher's absence. Other campuses have busy work for the students or pertinent videos/movies for them to watch.
    Most of the principals are VERY welcoming and will learn your name quickly if you are there frequently. I only encountered one principal in Englewood, who would barely acknowledge your presence or barely speak to you when spoken to.
    The number of students going off to college at many of the campuses are 100%.

    Cons

    Multiple people might contact you daily. The system needs to be centralized. Currently it is not. There is no way for one campus to be aware that you are working at another campus.

    Pros

    One of the most progressive, successful charter school networks in the country. Great school culture where everyone works hard and succeeds.

    Cons

    We put in a lot of work for our students' success - that comes with any teaching position.

    Pros

    My favorite thing about Noble is the high level of collaboration, not just within my school, but amongst all the campuses. Every quarter, you get to come together with all the other campuses to share strategies and brainstorm together. You really feel like you are a part of a team with a common mission to get more Chicago students to graduate from college.

    Cons

    I honestly can't think of any cons. I have loved my time at Noble. Yes, you put in A LOT of work, but it is all worth it.

    Professional, Inspiring, and Life-Changing

    I have been working at Noble Network of Charter Schools full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I've never worked with more hard-working, inspiring, and mission-driven people in my career. One of the Noble's greatest strengths is its culture and passion for students; this inspires and motivates me everyday when I come to "work." I feel completely supported and positively challenged; Noble is a place were I know that I can become a better professional and a better person. I'm proud to be Noble.

    Cons

    I think one area that can challenge new/prospective employees is understanding the culture. Many people feel aligned to the mission, but it does take time (like any job) to fully understand the unique, special Noble culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep inspiring, keep leading.
