Educator

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Little Rock, AR

I worked at Little Rock School District full-time for more than 5 years

ProsFriendly staff environment of community, hours of work align with life and work balance , opportunity to influence, educate, and support many children and families in the community. Good work-life balance.

ConsMicromanaged that interfered with quality, creative educating environment and relationships with the children. Behavior issues and lack of administrative and parental support created too many interruptions that had an effect on learning. Chaos of yelling in cafeteria harmful to children. Creating a sense of fear nd dread.

Advice to Senior ManagementCreate an more inviting environment in the cafeteria,; possibly add soothing. Classical musiic as well as common areas/courtyards for teachers and students.

– I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Good benefits, stable employment, but little room for growth outside of clerical work without teacher's certification

Secretary (Current Employee)
Little Rock, AR

I have been working at Little Rock School District

ProsGreat health benefits, stable job industry, great vacation and holiday time off, good pension plan, doesn't require highly specialized knowledge

ConsConstant change in upper management, no professional development for clerical, pay is based upon service time only rather than performance, little recognition, no advancement without teacher's certificate, easy to become stagnated, efficiency is not rewarded

Advice to Senior ManagementIn order to retain talented and efficient employees, develop professional development, formal recognition, and paths of advancement for non-certified staff.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Depends on the Principals

Middle School Science Teacher (Current Employee)

I have been working at Little Rock School District

ProsCo-workers are very supportive. Many professional development opportunities.

ConsIf anything goes wrong, everyone will blame the teacher. No matter if you have alerted Principals and parents regarding the situation. Principals can make your life HXXL - be careful when selecting a school. Teachers have tons of extra paperwork, meetings, and parent calls to make so you will spend min. 3 hours every night grading and prepping for the next day - and more time on the weekends.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of Principals who don't support their teachers.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
