Approves of CEO

I have been working at Atlanta Public Schools full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

The work schedule allows for work, life, balance. Great vacation benefits and good pay as well. New supt. is trying to address many issues across the organization.

Cons

APS needs to work on several things in the culture before they will retain quality talent. Many talented individuals come to the organization, but many of them leave due to the culture of the organization.

Advice to Management

Respect and treat your people across the organization as an asset.

    I have been working at Atlanta Public Schools full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you can get in at one of the good schools, it's not 100% horrible, but there are even downsides to those schools.

    Cons

    Central office corruption, standardized test cheating scandal, furlough days, frozen step increases, student discipline problems, work you to the bone while pay has decreased four years in a row. Teaching is not something I'd recommend anymore though...not here, not anywhere. The demands are becoming nearly impossible. It's just not worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Stop destroying the few good schools you have.
