    I have been working at Atlanta Public Schools full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The work schedule allows for work, life, balance. Great vacation benefits and good pay as well. New supt. is trying to address many issues across the organization.

    Cons

    APS needs to work on several things in the culture before they will retain quality talent. Many talented individuals come to the organization, but many of them leave due to the culture of the organization.

    Respect and treat your people across the organization as an asset.
