Teacher (Former Employee) Fort Lauderdale, FL

ProsUnion, even though the contract is not what it was, there are still protections.

ConsThe benefits are not good. They are very expensive and quite frankly very difficult to afford if you want benefits for your family. The culture is very political. You have to know someone or work your tail off to get noticed and then you STILL don't get promoted. People are not promoted based on what they know or the experiences they bring to the table.

Advice to Senior ManagementMy advice would be to hire a consultant company to assess the system and see what it needs in order to move towards a workplace that operates in the 21st century. The quality of education in Florida is lacking and it is due in part to hiring and promotion practices. This system is very antiquated and the same people that have not had any experience other than working in Broward Schools all of their adult lives are the ones that get promoted. There is no innovation.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
