Pros

The staff supporting men and women in leadership roles were excellent. They worked with limited resources to provide the best possible education.

Cons

The creation of a school system rather than a federation of schools made the schools no different from the public schools and therefore irrelevant. School leadership on a local level was reactionary because diocese leadership was inconsistent and very difficult to predict. This created a very stressful and demoralizing working environment. The threat of losing your job every few months does not create innovative and good schools.

Advice to Management

Make a plan, like the school rating plan, and stick to it. Do not force schools and organizations to jump though a myriad of hoops and then change the plan mid-course without explaining why. It is understandable that plans need to change, however expecting schools to do this without an understanding of why the countless hours of extra unpaid work are needed creates bitterness and frustration.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at The Archdiocese of Baltimore part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great people to work with
    Beautiful work setting

    Cons

    Music is traditionally undervalued monetarily in the Catholic Church - it expects a high level of commitment and competency but does not pay a living wage

    Advice to Management

    Value your musicians - the music is one of the 3 main reasons people are attracted to the Liturgy. Please don't take their talent and contributions for granted.
