    The Epitome of a Government Bureaucracy

    Pros

    Health benefits and holidays. Work on weekends is usually not required.

    Cons

    Chicago Public Schools is a very large bureaucracy, full of red tape and incompetency. Example: they just stopped issuing paper paychecks to employees who also get direct deposit (which is 99% of the employees). Before that, everyone got a voided paper check, whether they wanted it or not. Many facilities are run down. Staff is overworked and underpaid. Recommendation: AVOID

    Pros

    It's good to be part of the teacher's union. And of course, the kids.

    Cons

    Too much unnecessary paperwork/red tape. Too much testing. Weird stuff going on with contract negotiations.
