I worked at Aspire Public Schools full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Mix of bright, passionate, intelligent people; solid compensation (particularly for cost of living in Oakland); excellent work/life balance

Cons

Disconnect between the Home Office and the rest of the schools (and possibly in between schools); vertical mobility is based on restructuring of teams or when others leave Aspire (often depends on luck as well as identifying opportunities on your own)

Advice to Management

More diversity on the board and senior leadership team; involve more active educators in the process
