    I worked at Coweta County School System full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great support from co-workers. Good benefits.

    Cons

    The pay was very low. The salary is impossible to live on.

    Advice to Management

    Include paraprofessionals in meetings to hear their input. Even if they're not certified teachers, they have great ideas and valuable information.

    I have been working at Coweta County School System full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great System. Takes care of employees, especially those on the lower end of the salary scale. Great Benefits, were better before Obamacare but still very good. Added furlough days back to teacher contracts. Covered the increase in health costs for classified employees even though they were not required to.

    Cons

    It can be more about who you know sometimes when attaining promotions, but all systems have that.

    Advice to Management

    More opportunities to non-coaching candidates please.
