I have been working at Lincoln Public Schools - Lincoln, NE full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

LPS is a student focused district that has a long tradition of meeting the learning needs and more of those students. This is often done in very collaborative and innovative ways. People are often encouraged to use their strengths when it comes to students. There are many gifted and dedicated teachers within the district as well as administrators who really care about what happens with students.

Cons

Education in general is a fast paced, changing environment and all individuals involved in the process must learn to adapt or become stressed when their parameters are stretched. This is not a job for people who like things the same way day after day.

    I have been working at Lincoln Public Schools - Lincoln, NE as a contractor (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good schedule if you need flexibility due to children's school days. Nice to not go to work if school is cancelled due to snow.

    Cons

    Not much room for advancement. They do not seem to promote from within. Salary schedule discouraging - for several years you will work at the same wage the new employees start at. After 6 years you will get "longevity" pay per hour of about a quarter....

    Advice to Management

    Post jobs for internal transfer candidates for a week before opening up to the public.
