Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Montgomery County Public Schools (Maryland) full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Wonderful place for people who need job security. You can work there for 30 years without having to go through a single evaluation.

Cons

The is too much patronage and the decision making is horrible. You may wonder how the rank so high. Too much money is being used to teach student to the test.
