    Pros

    good security with great benefits. Positive working conditions. Many paid holidays and great feeling working with young people.and interesting challenges.

    Teaching young people requires stamina and demandin planning skills. Preparing lesson plans that will reach every learning level. Most important is getting along with other teachers and adhering to administrative rules. Teamwork is the key word.

    Advice to Management

    Flexibility and empathy are very important traits. Firm but fair is peramount in management. The attitude determans altitude , will permeate from the top down to the entry level positions.

    Pros

    Stable job, decent benefits. Many great people to work with. The team I worked with before leaving were great people.

    Cons

    Salary ranges seem low. No growth potential. Only way to move up is to transfer positions within ASU and if you do, your pay increase is limited to 10% of your current salary. Also have to pay for parking out of your pay check.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees proper salary and give periodic bonuses/raises to keep them there. Also, let the employees park for free.
