No opinion of CEO

I worked at New York City Department of Education as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Real audit work to inexperienced college students.

Cons

Auditing was very repetitive, though I guess that's what auditing is like in general. Regular employees seems to not like management very much.

    I have been working at New York City Department of Education full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    With so many schools of varying sizes and focuses in New York City, it may be easier to find a good match for prospective employees.

    Cons

    Bureaucratic and budget issues can force education of our children to take a back seat. There are so many changes happening at once, that it is necessary to have a very organized and communicative administration who is willing to train all educators to implement the Common Core.

    I worked at New York City Department of Education as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The Department of Education has great name recognition and prestige attached to it. I got to meet some amazing people and see the amazing work that the Department of Education does.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, my supervisor was cold and treated me harshly. She didn't want to get to know me and barely spoke to me unless she wanted something to get done. The internal system is full of catchphrases and jargon that you are supposed to pick up. Internally inefficient.

    Advice to Management

    Better internship program and make sure that the people who request interns actually will treat them with respect and cordiality.
