Working for the City of Baltimore

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Baltimore, MD

ProsIt's great being a 10 month employee - summers off. My school in particular has a great staff and people who care about their jobs, are responsible and willing to get the job done.

ConsHeadquarters - you come across several departments within the HQ - everything from HR to support offices like the office of Special Education Services. My routine experience is that you can get many different responses for the same question or concern you may have. Staff can be slow at resolving concerns and there have been times when paperwork gets lost or misplaced.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe consistant

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
