    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    They overall have pretty good benefits and the pension is very decent.

    Cons

    There is no appreciation for anything done. Nothing is ever good enough either. Give them a finger, they'll take your whole arm and still not be satisfied.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what the teachers are saying and respect them as professionals and employees! Follow their advice, they're not out to steer you or the children wrong!
