I have been working at West Des Moines Community Schools full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Great co-workers, good benefits.

Cons

No opportunity for professional growth. There is no career--just jobs. Budget constraints for FY2015 and FY2016 will make workloads heavy hamper morale.

Advice to Management

The professional development opportunities are pointless if the experience and learning don't lead to promotions or additional responsibility.

    I worked at West Des Moines Community Schools (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    High quality of teachers, newer technology, most students motivated to learn.

    Cons

    Public school district...hands tied by bureaucracy sometimes...not able to always get rid of under-performing teachers. Sometimes it is "who you know" rather than "what you know".

    Pros

    Wonderful benefits package, time off, and breaks during the school year.

    Cons

    Very little pay for the hazards of the job, too much negativity, incessant gossiping by teachers and staff. Very little real leadership from the teachers.

    Advice to Management

    Get a handle on the gossip and back stabbing and reprimand the teachers for allowing it to continue in their classrooms.
