Scandalous at best

Teacher (Former Employee) Atlanta, GA

ProsSalary, fellow teachers, and students.

ConsToo many chiefs - who seem to have been offered a job just after wondering onto the reservation.

Advice to Senior ManagementWhat management? There's an abundance of micro-management but little to no true leaders. My only advice would be for them to think about why they initially chose a career in education, and if the answer isn't in some way student-centered, I would then advise them to resign.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Your experience depends largely on what school you work for, schools in more affluent areas tend to be less stressful.
