I have been working at New York City Department of Education

Pros

You have the opportunity to positively effect the lives of hundreds of students, interact with interesting people, and capable to shape your professional career

Cons

Too much red tape, lack of accountability, it's easy for people with low skills/competency to become senior managers. It's more about who you know than your capability, insight, capacity for high level thought

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More direct ability to rate your supervisor, stop bending to the Charter school movement, devote more resources to schools in poor neighborhoods, do better on the achievement gap, and have a more diversified leadership throughout all facets of the DOE.

    I have been working at New York City Department of Education

    Pros

    Meaningful work that can be progressive and challenging; smart, dedicated, and driven colleagues; solid benefits as a city employee; not an overwhelming bureaucratic vibe despite being the nation's largest local education department.

    Cons

    Huge organization means sometimes getting lost in the system; work sometimes gets watered down by the time it goes through all levels of review; frequent re-organizations and office spin-offs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more confident in the work going on internally and less sensitive to outside criticism. The work being done is actually pretty good although it frequently gets derided and belittled.
