    I worked at Woodward Academy (GA) full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Students are the best aspect of the institution. The are diverse on many levels. I have learned a great deal from them through the years about religion, history, and culture.

    Cons

    The administrative hierarchy has grow to a point where input from parents, students and teachers in minimized.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Acknowledge that the diverse community deserves to be asked to be involved in policy making and they should be listened to; their diversity brings a cornucopia of ideas that the homogeneous administration lacks.

    Pros

    Good benefits (healthcare, ed reimbursement, lunch)
    Some very talented teachers here

    Cons

    Dictatorial President treats teachers like a commodity, not like educated professionals
    Micromanager department chair means much time is spent on data clerk activities vs. on teaching and interacting with students
    No room for mobility/advancement unless you are pals with someone at the top.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat teachers as the professionals we are, don't lie to us, and don't treat us like criminals!
