    Pros

    good benefits, reimbursement for continuing education, some opportunity to make extra money doing after school programing

    Cons

    top down approach, lots of bureaucracy being forced down your throat.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Walk around the building on a daily basis

    I worked at Stamford Public Schools

    Pros

    Great teachers, nice families, most building administrators are pretty decent folk

    Cons

    The central office administration has NO CLUE what goes down at the building level. They grasp onto trends and products they think are the magic bullet to get test scores up. They pack on more and more requirements and demands without really knowing what our student population is like.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    spend some real time in the school buildings, not just a walk through where everyone pretends they are happy to see you. Give the staff some REAL professional development, not just time killing nonsense.

    I have been working at Stamford Public Schools

    Pros

    It is a very large school system where there are many different schools each with its own personality.

    Cons

    The pay for substitute teachers has not increased in a decade. There is no support from administration if there is a problem.
