I have been working at Hillsborough County Public Schools full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

8th largest district in the US; many opportunities for growth and advancement

Cons

sometimes a little top-heavy; often will interpret rules more conservatively than the state, cause more work in the trenches

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Saying "You'll have to do more with less," or "work smarter, not harder," disrespects those that have put in the extra time and effort to make sure students get what they need.

    Current Employee - Elementary Teacher in Tampa, FL

    I have been working at Hillsborough County Public Schools full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The classroom teacher is a great place to start your career in education. Be sure to network and apply for jobs internally to get out of the classroom.

    Cons

    Behaviors of students have deteriorated. You need to be a behavior management specialist at most schools. The teacher is no longer imparting knowledge to students. Students are grouped and "teach" themselves. The job is very stressful due to lack of planning time, meetings, student behavior issues, assessments and an abundance of administrative duties.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember when you were in the classroom.

    Former Employee - Secretary III in Tampa, FL

    I worked at Hillsborough County Public Schools full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    A lot of time off during summer and throughout the year

    Cons

    Low salary, no professional growth, poor benefits

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Even though the organization is a non-profit to improve its development and ensure future success it should be managed as a business. The policies and procedures should be revised based on business model.
