    Pros

    Great teachers (co-workers) who put in 100% all the time.
    Respectful students who work hard.
    Teaching resources are decent considering the low-budget.

    Cons

    Horrible administrations (principals, vp, etc..) that break rules to suit their fancy.
    Teachers that get paid to do nothing is really frustrating to witness and not be able to do anything about it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more transparent and less secretive. Realize how much teachers actually do and how much administrators play around and get paid three times as much.

    Current Employee - Teacher's Aid in Provo, UT

    Pros

    Talented teachers and multi-cultural children in classrooms. Fantastic co-workers and a positive environment. The students are bright and well behaved with lots of promise.

    Cons

    It seems that opportunities of advancement and higher positions are awarded not based on years completed at the school or educational background, but friendship with certain individual or their families. Also, certain people always get summer school positions, while others never seem to. Our schools are small communities and this dampens relationships.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make hiring decisions fairly and with full oversight. Do not have friends/acquaintances/former teachers conducting hiring interviews.
