I have been working at Ombudsman Educational Services full-time

Pros

Good work/life balance. You don't have to take anything home when you leave at the end of the day.

Cons

Extremely low play, far less than the local public school system, results in high turnover. Low student motivation due to nature of business. Also, teachers may also have to perform janitorial duties.

Advice to Management

Offer competitive salaries.

    Pros

    You really do get to make a difference in your student's lives. Some of these students need this type of environment and set up to complete their schooling.

    Cons

    Lack of communication and quick turnarounds. You never know when someone will leave or be replaced by someone new. They have the center staff do all of the cleaning. Working with computers that are over 5 years old that break down and haven't been replaced for months is an issue. It is also sad when they tell you to have the students keep working on computers that have lost all sound when at least 1/3 of the students work involves watching videos or listening to a reading program that they have to do and don't get credit for doing. At your interview you may be told that you won't have to take any work home and this is a lie. Unless you have the most well behaved students there is no way you will have time to grade, and control the students, and answer questions, and move students forward in their programs, and deal with IT issues, and speak with parents, and do other in-house paperwork that needs to get done.

    Advice to Management

    Improve communication. Offer better training. Replace old technology in a timely manner. Don't allow IT to close a ticket until they have confirmation that the issue is resolved or their solution worked. I have put in tickets that were closed and then got a stern response saying that I should not have submitted a new ticket, but no one responded when I commented on the closed ticket for over 2 weeks.
