I have been working at Seattle Public Schools full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Many individual departments are full of capable and dedicated team members that make coming to work a joy.

Cons

The central office can be a volatile place because of budget cuts and school staff that don't appreciate the work of the central office employees. Promotions are promised and then don't materialize because of budgetary reasons.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please keep your promises of promotion or don't offer them in the first place. Also find a way to get more money from the state!
