    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA

    I worked at Los Angeles USD full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Low stress if all you want is a paycheck and do not rock the boat (go with the flow without questions.)

    Job preservation has been given priority (be it presure from unions and/or non-unionized employees...)

    Cons

    Highly political, management heavy, budget issues have resulted in very low morale.
    New employee benefits (pension and such) more stringent that for those already there 20+ years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not allow politics to overrule sound judgement.
