    I have been working at Chicago Public Schools full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Solid employment. Wonderful community of professionals and development. Excellent benefits. Security once tenured. Holiday vacations. Decent work-life balance once you get the hang of it.

    Cons

    Mayor appointed board of education. Principals are typically insane people who cannot be trusted. Constant turnover of staff and leadership. Underfunded and underresourced. It can be a struggle to survive the first 2-5 years.

    Advice to Management

    Fight back against standardized testing. It has poisoned the well. Do the best you can to support and retain talented teachers.
