I have been working at Los Angeles USD full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Not working for a corporation, doing a social good, some union protection against overly abusive supervisors, good work/life balance and benefits.

Cons

Massive institution that sometimes doesn't know what the other hand is doing. Lots of paperwork. Mostly good people but some idiots who definitely should not be employed there (or anywhere) and you have to deal with them. Can be political.

Advice to Management

Get your act together. Streamline. Come up with one set of rules and stick to them.

    I have been working at Los Angeles USD part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    large number of potential work sites.

    Cons

    teaching credentials required for positions that should require business credentials.

    Advice to Management

    expand perception that business professionals also need to have education credentials to satisfy business positions with the district. we should not need a teaching credential for a management position in lieu of or in addition to an MBA for example.


  2. "Huge bureaucratic monster"

    I have been working at Los Angeles USD full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    1) Great place to work with kids.
    2) All benefits are taken care of.
    3) My school culture was great when I taught there.

    Cons

    1) As title says, very difficult to get an answer sometimes.
    2) Way too many offices. I'm not sure what all of them do.
    3) A "us vs. district" mentality at school sites.

    Advice to Management

    I really think LAUSD needs to just break up into smaller districts in order for students, teachers, and families to be better served.
