    I have been working at Fairfax County Public Schools

    Pros

    Yet, like waiting on tables...you eventually move on to something better.

    Cons

    Conundrum: When applying for position FCPS states --Supports FCPS mission to "inspire, enable, and empower students to meet high academic standards, lead ethical lives, and demonstrate responsible citizenship."
    Yet, how come you ask teachers to do many unethical things like focusing on everything but creating inspiring lessons? You have teachers so busy with minutia and "data entry" that only the most seasoned teachers know the difference.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember where you came from. Have some integrity and backbone.

    I worked at Fairfax County Public Schools

    Pros

    Every employee and teacher that I encountered were professional and interested in the well being of the children.

    Cons

    The only challenge would have to have been the bureaucracy of such a large employer but there is no way around that one.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat all employees well and the children will respond well too.
