Great job for young people looking to make a difference or go into education.

ProsHealth insurance was offered for part time teachers, which is a great gig if you are in college. Great information and structure for employees and clear tracks to advancement. New sites or those in transition can be challenging, but a part of the job of creating community.

ConsCan really be challenging if the school you are working at is not on board, but that is not usually the fault of CS.

Advice to Senior ManagementOffer more quantitative feedback/statistics about job performance.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
