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 8 years)

    Pros

    Good health benefits, summers and holidays off, tenure

    Cons

    Tons of paperwork, too much accountability and not enough time to actually teach, lots of structure and little place for creativity. Every few years they change the curriculum and there is little to no training when this occurs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let us determine what our students need, trust our judgment and let us do our job. We went into the teaching profession because we care about our kids, but with all the extra paperwork, our time to prepare quality lessons is compromised. It also cuts down on the 1-1 time with the students.

    Pros

    The pension and retirement plans.

    Cons

    Large bureaucracy, silly rules, micromanaging bosses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep teaching human and stop trying to reduce the profession and students to numbers and figures. I am a big fan of data, but don't forget the difference between producing productive citizens and producing widgets.
