I have been working at Green Dot Public Schools full-time
Pros – Once you've been there a while then your job is very secure.
Most employees genuinely believe in the mission.
Green Dot is doing innovative work in the field of teacher effectiveness.
Cons – It takes at least a year to win the respect of managers.
Numerous promotions from within mean that Green Dot personnel don't really have an idea of how the real world is.
When Green Dot has an employee who just doesn't get the work done, instead of managing them better or letting them go, they simply persist in the job, forever. You can spend a great deal of time working around these folks.
Advice to Senior Management – Try to listen to your employees. Increase review frequency and make feedback ok, starting with yourselves.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

I worked at Green Dot Public Schools full-time for more than 5 years
Pros – The students are great and the communities that are served by Green Dot are vibrant and rich places. The growth and achievement of the young people you get to know is inspirational!
Cons – A lot of nepotism goes on here. Sisters, brothers, friends, and fiancees will get promoted when other highly qualified people get overlooked. Worse of all, some of the best teachers and leaders will leave and/or get removed simply to open up a new position for someone who is "in" the circle.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

I worked at Green Dot Public Schools
Pros – The bonds i made between co-workers are ever lasting. Skill in communications influencing my abilities to reason with others easily.
Cons – Unreasonable pay for the amount of work being done. Some workers choice to come to work late without any consequences.
