    Pros

    Some school sites have excellent staffs that are innovative and supportive. Many teachers do an amazing job with very little.

    Cons

    District level leadership does not communicate well with employees. The district is behind where other districts should be in terms of technology and innovation.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate and listen to employees. Really listen to all your stakeholders and recognize the talent the district contains. Use it rather than outsource issues.

    Pros

    Love the children. All the children I worked with were respectful and genuinely wanted to learn. Some of the faculty were wonderful to work with, and were great at communicating assignments as well as expectations.

    Cons

    Teacher would make me do their lesson plans, until administration found out. Teacher would frequently leave me alone with children despite the fact that is illegal. Completely rude staff,No help from administration when reporting these issues. Extremely low pay for work required. Frequently harassed by the principal

    Advice to Management

    Support the aides.

    Pros

    Easy flowing. Good hours 7-2:30. Self taught and easily managed. Learn great query writing, data creating and time management skills. Great if you're computer savvy and like to work alone and try new things. Not directly overseen so must take initiative to learn better, faster ways to do things. Yearly pay increases. 401K matching. Great vacation & PN hours. Off summers and all holidays. Great if you have school aged children.

    Cons

    No growth potential on school site. Low pay after 10 month proration. Skills are best fit for jobs like IT, data analyst, etc. Waste of skills if staying for a lifetime.

    Advice to Management

    More training at beginning level. Better pay due to job duties and importance on campus.
