    I worked at Archdiocese of Washington part-time

    Pros

    I worked at Archdiocese of Washington full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Too few to mention, but digging deep; the parishes have good intentions. However, the leadership at the headquarters destroys nearly all of the goodwill.

    Cons

    Too many bullies behaving badly and management participates. Many leave the organization crying or with health problems caused by stress.

    Advice to Management

    Do the job your paid to do, and demonstrate integrity, transparency, engagement. Clean house.

    Pros

    You feel as though you are in a safer teaching environment where the students are disciplined. Number one pro is prayer is in school daily.

    Cons

    Pay isn't much for support staff, i.e. Secretarial, teachers aids, etc, plus a lot of the support staff only received one raise in 9 years, a small one.

    Advice to Management

    They need to raise the salary and be vigilant about giving annual raises to support staff. The love of being at a catholic school does not pay the bills, raises and good pay does.


  10. "Teacher"

    I have been working at Archdiocese of Washington full-time

    Pros

    Most teachers are great - Very dedicated to education.
    Students are respectful. Being able to teach Catholic values is very helpful.

    Cons

    Stuck in a mentality of doing things "the way they've always been done."
    School leadership is hit or miss-depends on the school.
    Parents at some schools are very entitled.

    Advice to Management

    Look towards growing the CSO
