    Good district if you are a Mac.

    I worked at Eugene School District 4J as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Worked with some nice people, learned a lot about how to administer OS X systems. Lots of work to do at different schools across district kept things interesting. Fairly relaxed work environment, there is usually not high stress and pressure that other employers might have in similar positions.

    Cons

    Due to budget cuts very limited resources. Technical staff was spread very thin amongst the school district. Resource management procedures need improvement. Eugene is a nice town, traffic is usually a non-factor, but the weather can get depressing during the school year when the rain doesn't stop for weeks.

    I worked at Eugene School District 4J full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Casual dress, people really do care about education.

    Cons

    Not enough people to do what is needed and when you are found capable can easily be taken advantage of. Anybody who has really been borderline has been moved to the district office into a cush job--that's not right.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hope the new Super is changing some of these things.

    I have been working at Eugene School District 4J

    Pros

    Good health/retirement benefits. Most jobs low-stress. Schools will be around forever. Union employees are protected from unfair/unreasonable labor practices.

    Cons

    Reduced funding means cutbacks and more work for remaining staff. Growing state and federal mandates mean more complex, stressful work - for same pay and uncompensated overtime (for professionals and management). Not much room for advancement, or opportunities to develop professionally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sooner or later, someone is going to have to say enough is enough - you can't expect a shrinking number of staff to do more and more work.

    I have been working at Eugene School District 4J

    Pros

    The benefits are very good. I enjoy the hours, working with students and teachers and the vacations. I like being on a "school" schedule.

    Cons

    The beauracracy can be really frustrating. The ridiculous amount of time and paper work to accomplish the simpleist task is mind-numbing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As a government entity I don't know if the beauracracy can be lessened but it definitely increases employee dissatisfaction a lot.
