Pros

Becoming a teacher trains you to do many things: Manage people, organize time, assess performance, communicate goals, motivate people who don' want to be. Obviously, a good place to go if you are seeking stability.

Cons

Increasingly more difficult to design your own way. They tell you what you need to do, how you need to do it, when you must accomplish it, and what the results need to be. Let me use my own creativity to accomplish the goals. Allow me to use the ideas and skilIs I learned while getting my credential as opposed to force feeding me your way, with your materials that often don't suit the population I'm teaching.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Weed out the self-absorbed, incompetent principals the same way you target ineffective teachers. Too many relish the opportunity to make the work lives of others difficult. Too many make a show of their power because they can. Not enough take the view point that they are there to serve the teachers so that the teachers can better serve the students.
