Good Public Institution

Executive Director (Current Employee)
Charlotte, NC

ProsThis is a very large public entity with lots of opportunities across business sectors. Great salary and benefits packages. Also allows investment in state retirement system.

ConsThe size of the organization and it being public sometimes means that things move slow and there is some bureaucratic stuff to deal with. Much of the experience depends on the specific business unit or supervisor you have.

Advice to Senior ManagementLook outside of education for management positions sometimes.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    High (Former Employee)
    Charlotte, NC

    I worked at Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools full-time for more than 3 years


    Pros: Summers and major holidays off, depending on the age group… Cons: They want you to teach to the test and the kids are not prepared to be competitive in the real world.… Advice to Senior Management: Re-evaluate how you promote principals to central office positions, most of them… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
