    I have been working at Austin ISD full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    They have great time off policies - 2 paid weeks off for Christmas, a week for spring break, all the standard holidays off plus a week of sick, a week of personal leave and 2 weeks vacation.

    Cons

    The HR department is unwilling or unable to come up with a way to offer reasonable compensation. They use some archaic metric to determine what your starting salary is and then, with the exception of across the board pay increases, there is where you will forever remain. No realistic evaluation of skills upon hire. No merit increases. This results in high turnover in some departments, and little opportunity to attract qualified, quality replacements.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do some research out there and see what kind of money will need to be spent in order to attract and retain even mediocre employees (You aren't even in the low end of the ballpark). Elsewise the turnover will remain high, and the available candidate pool will remain very small.
