I have been working at Rocketship Education full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

-awesome kids
-mission driven company
-most of your coworkers are awesome, innovative people who genuinely want to create change in a community
-really excellent benefits packages, even for hourly employees

Cons

-really high turnover in teachers since most are hired from Teach for America
-things are CONSTANTLY changing
-hourly employees are not well compensated for what they are expected to do
-many problems that occur are embedded in the model of Rocketship, and sometimes it feels like you're either with them, or not...trying to address critical problems to management is difficult because it is often taken as "Anti-Rocketship" culture

Advice to Management

-allow a safe space for employees to address their issues
-if possible, double the outdoor space of each site (or consider building on larger sites when opening new schools). this would seriously solve so many unnecessary issues.

    Pros

    The kids and parents were delightful! Everyone was very hard working and cared about the kids. The teachers, for the most part, were also good.

    Cons

    No room for creativity - you must operate within the box. Leadership staff need more training. Differentiated instruction, especially for ELL and special needs children, needs to happen much more effectively.

    Advice to Management

    You should talk to your teachers and parents more often. There are many concerns that are not being addressed.
