Pros

Baltimore City Schools provides nice professional development opportunities and benefits that anyone would love. The organization also allows a lot of internal movement; ideally, you could change careers pretty easy due to the several opportunities available.

Cons

As it is with many government environments, Baltimore City Schools suffers from its fair share of the "bureaucratic red tape," making it difficult for bright ideas to be established district-wide. The majority of employees may be considered too old to adapt to change or new technology, making progress even more difficult. Also, job security at mid senior level positions and upwards may not be the best right now.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management may want to invest in standardizing systems and structures throughout the organization. In addition to that, they may also want to ensure that staff are adequately trained and supported before the option of dismissal is considered.

    I have been working at Baltimore City Public School System full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    It'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.

    Cons

    Headquarters - 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 ManagementAdvice

    Be consistant
