Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook

I worked at New London Public Schools as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Hires new interns quite often
Pay is fine for entry-level

Cons

Unorganized IT department
Overly political environment
Unprofessional Management
Extremely high turnover and low rate of job satisfaction from most employees dealt with
IT management constantly throwing fits of rage at the drop of a hat, and physically breaking items, screaming, and a hostile work environment

Advice to Management

Try a new career path, perhaps IT is not for you
