    Former Employee - Extended Daycare Employee in Richmond, TX

    I worked at Fort Bend ISD

    Pros

    As a college student, working as an Extended Daycare employee was perfect for me. Decent pay, great work environment, and fun to work with kids.

    Cons

    This was not exactly a career since the pay is hourly and you only get so many hours a day, but like I said great for college kids or high schoolers over 18.

    Disappointing - principals look the other way if a teacher is their friend. Lack of morals.

    I worked at Fort Bend ISD full-time

    Pros

    There are some great people working their, but sadly, if you are trying to do the right thing, you are in a minority.

    Cons

    The district does not rotate their staff - some of their teachers and principals have been doing the same job for over 20 years. If you are in tight with an administrator, you can pretty much get away with anything - including coming in late everyday with a hangover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move employees around - to different schools at least every three years and tell principals that they have a 20 min. lunch just like everyone else. There are some admins that take a 1.5 hour lunch every day. And the admins put on a show when they know someone from the district is coming in.

    Current Employee - Special Education Teacher in Sugar Land, TX

    I have been working at Fort Bend ISD full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Worked with a close knit faculty and under many great administrators; encouraging of making time for self and family

    Cons

    Usual pitfalls of working in education - too much paperwork, lack of responsibility in the kids and parents; over emphasis on testing and assessments

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A new superintendent this school year (2013-14) seems to be having a positive effect on employees.
