    I have been working at Garden Grove USD full-time

    Pros

    The pay is top tier. Many teachers, admins, and support staff are nice and smart.

    Cons

    The superintendent is stuck up, fake and has ADD and board members have pie-in-the-sky ideals but no clue. District admins are micromanagers. Incompetent people are strongly protected and the merit system is a joke. Emotionally draining place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Hire and keep smart and talented people and trust them to know what they're doing. Get rid of lazy, good for nothing employees instead of protecting them.
