Current Employee - Technology Representative in Charlotte, NC
Current Employee - Technology Representative in Charlotte, NC

I have been working at Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools full-time (more than an year)

Pros

The work environment is great and there is great team work that goes on here. Everyone is friendly for the most part. No drama just blue collar workers going to a goal.

Cons

The pay isnt where it should be for this type of work. IT people should not be associates with getting Gasoline readouts or inputting labor cards for workers. That should fall under payroll, not the Information Technology department.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Increase pay.

    I worked at Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I had a few very good students.

    Cons

    CMS just doesn't understand that discipline is their biggest problem. If the system worked on just this one issue, test scores would go way up. They just can't seem to hire principals that know how to turn a school around. I had six in 14 years and they all were ineffective.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Deal with the poor discipline and hire principals that will support the teachers.

    I worked at Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    You can make a difference in your student's lives.
    If you have a good administrator, you might have a lot of freedom.

    Cons

    It is a big district with lots of turnover. They don't care much about individual employees.
    There are a lot of micromanaging principals.
    Everything is based on test scores.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make decisions based on what is best for students. Keep working condition reasonable so you don't keep losing the best teachers.
