    Former Employee - Res Life Mentor 

    I worked at East Baton Rouge Parish School System part-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Working with the kids; programming; team oriented (kind of); work-life balance

    Cons

    Poor executive leadership. Owner of the school does not know her employees and treats them like they are replaceable tools. Other leadership seems afraid and timid of her so they do not confront her practices. Poor lunch/dinner options for the students.

    Advice to Management

    Get to know your employees. Stop calling your students "at-risk." Stop parading them around to your rich friends for money at the school. treat them like they are human

    Pros

    The students you serve makes the job pleasant.

    Cons

    The nepotism is at an all time high within this district. It's all about who you're married to and related to in order to get a job that you do not qualify for and is not competent to preform the job.

    Advice to Management

    Just fire everyone and start all over from top down!
