    I have been working at Baltimore County Public Schools full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The benefits are amazing compared to any company I've ever worked for. Constantly busy and days go by extremely fast. Paid time off, including sick, holiday, snow, and personal days. Unused time carries over.

    Cons

    I had no prior experience working for a school system and there is not much training available other than on the job and picking it up as I go along. It would be nice to have more formal training for people in my position to assure consistency across the school system.

    Advice to Management

    Provide training for new employees.
