    I have been working at Compton Unified School District full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The best reason to work here is there are not many layoffs and the family atmosphere. Benefits are good. Work keeps you very busy . I was able to learn the essential core of my job and value all my experiences . This job is an investment in understanding the teacher child relationship.

    Cons

    The children need alote of attention and love. When the economy was good. the was alote of training and other perks. Now with this recession we could use an intervention . Our training was up to standard and that was great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees they are the eyes and ears of the cooperation.

    I have been working at Compton Unified School District full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    GOOD relationships can be built; both working & personal.

    Cons

    BAD leadership, corrupt officials, low salaries, crime infested neighborhood. Rethink going here or KNOW you're setting yourself up to deal with some challenges you won't see elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get off your high horses and LISTEN to the people in the trenches. Just because you have a whole bunch of acronyms behind your name means NOTHING when dealing with the human factor. Its relationships of collaboration & respect that propel the organization forward towards the overall goals. So blinded by the 'formalities' of titles to see that support staff is important.

    I have been working at Compton Unified School District full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I had phenomenal colleagues. The kids are great. I taught at one of the better schools, though organization was a major issue in this district.

    Cons

    The IT department is sub-par. I knew more than them about computers and networking. Also, the district is behind in the times. They don't utilize technology and everything moves at a snail's pace.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have systems in place and stick to them. It was very difficult, especially with discipline, for things to get done.
