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

ProsAll 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.

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

Advice to Senior ManagementInvest more in Home Office staff to reduce the turnover and make people happier.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
