    I have been working at Noble Street Charter Schools full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    This company is full of passionate people, and offers consistent training opportunities including quarterly network wide sessions. There is a chance for real social impact working at this company and therefore the job satisfaction is weighted with something intangible; helping others.

    Cons

    This company has consistently with work/life balance, despite professing a desire to see employees attain it the obligations and time required make it difficult to raise a family or stay involved in clubs or groups outside of the company. Professional development sessions not always useful and are occassionally just soapboxes for upper management to prostelytize. Because each campus has its own principal and culture internal politics between schools is problematic with some schools bickering about differences in culture or pedagogy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let go of the traditional school model, take chances with how classrooms look and what learning looks like in the 21st century. Continue to find ways to take stress out of the teachers' jobs.

    I have been working at Noble Street Charter Schools

    Pros

    Small school environment
    Great school culture
    Students are focused on college prepatory work
    Some opportunities to make a little extra cash

    Cons

    Low-- horrible pay
    Poor people management and treatment if you are support staff by a certain manager
    Poor job structure and guidelines for reviews

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of management that treats coworkers poorly
    Listen to support staff as well as teachers
    Allow for more of a dialogue with support staff and top management
    Put someone in charge of internal operations if the principal is going to be the hiring manager
    Focus on long-term internal campus goals that align with network goals (no clear campus goals)
