I worked at Aspire Public Schools full-time

Pros

Great mission, passionate staff and long-ish hours, but not unreasonable. Fair compensation.

Cons

Didn't feel fully utilized, was a bit bored some of the time.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Nurture all employees -- it is cheaper to nurture existing employees than to train new ones. Make sure you select the right employees, nurture them appropriately and help them to remain challenged.

    I worked at Aspire Public Schools full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    All of the people are really nice. Lots of opportunities to volunteer at the schools and see the students, which makes it a lot easier to appreciate the work done at the Home Office.

    Cons

    Most managers are too busy to support and train their staff. No opportunities to learn or grow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more in Home Office staff to reduce the turnover and make people happier.

    I have been working at Aspire Public Schools full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I love working for Aspire because all of the teammates are focused on the mission and vision. We are preparing students to earn a college degree. As a child of a parent who went to college and one who did not, I have seen first hand how college is a game changer!

    I have been fortunate to work for Aspire for the past twelve years and been given the opportunity to wear several hats.

    Cons

    I don't have anything to complain about! This is a great place to have a career as an educator.
