    Pros

    Nothing great- not anythings positive to say about this company. You own yourself better condition so just pass them by.

    Treat you any old way they want, if you work have they work you harder. Lazy people get special treatment and their owners are spoiled brats....they don't care and they do not listen.

    Get others to run the company and go to work for someone other than mommy ans daddy.

    I worked at Alamance-Burlington School System full-time

    Pros

    It is really all about the kids. They are the ones I spent the most time with and if you keep your focus on what is best for the kids and can back it up then everything is ok.

    State-level: Pay and treat your teachers as professionals. It is that simple.
