    Pros

    Very supportive environment, excellent clinical staff of supervisors, licensed and pre-licensed mental health professionals working in a progressive system. Internship is paid, and includes weekly group and individual supervision. Academic staff in schools have been great partners to bring mental health to students who might not otherwise have access.

    Cons

    School starts early, work is not full time to be living wage, but much better than having to pay like other internships.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, thank you for the opportunity to learn top notch clinical practice and help students with preventative mental health.


  2. A great place to work with supportive administration and teachers who care about their students.

    Pros

    Great students and supportive parents. Other teachers are all friendly and easy to work with. Job is stable and the administration always expresses their gratitude for your work as a teacher.

    Cons

    Putting up with the teacher's union and all its political propaganda. There's not a lot of room for growth.

    Advice to Management

    You're doing a good job supporting the teachers and allowing them to have autonomy in the classroom.

    Pros

    Staff members are wonderful people.

    Cons

    With all the budget cuts the teacher have had to give up a lot of training time so less work for subs.
    They don't take into account the cultural needs of students.

    Advice to Management

    The fall break was set up to cover the Jewish High Holidays since teachers weren't following the memos sent by principals. The break wasn't meant to be two days off just for fun.

    Pros

    The students are a joy to work with.

    Cons

    The politics of education are huge here and unfortunately it gets in the way of its potential for achieving educational excellence.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees - we really are here for the students - definitely not for the salary - and NO benefits.

    Pros

    Great benefits package. Overall, students and parents care about learning. Teachers are given independence in determining how to manage their classrooms. There is a strong sense of teamwork and collaboration among the teachers.

    Cons

    It's a union job. It doesn't foster innovation and hard work, because teachers are advanced based on seniority. I'm leaving the teaching profession, because I want to be in a job that allows more opportunity for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Offer some kind of incentive for innovation. If teachers feel that they are not rewarded for exceptional work, most of them will not go the extra mile to accomplish something great.
