    I worked at Girls Preparatory School full-time

    Pros

    GPS is set on beautiful grounds and the spirit and mission of the school are just as uplifting. If you keep your gaze fixed on expanding opportunities for girls education, you will enjoy your time as an employee.

    Cons

    Along with time-honored traditions are pervasive attitudes about the good old days of GPS. This holds GPS back from being all that it could be. The current Head of School has some pretty groundbreaking ideas to advance the school’s mission. The challenge will continue to be a matter of the community being willing to embrace change for the better.

    Advice to Management

    Consider a 4 day work week in the summer months.

  3. "Great place to work"

    Pros

    Family atmosphere, great co-workers, free lunch, lots of time off. Beautiful campus and gorgeous views. Laidback environment with very friendly people.

    Cons

    HR facilities are lacking. Performance reviews non-existent for staff employees. Not much room for moving up once you get there.

    Advice to Management

    Make employees accountable for their work. Standardize on performance reviews and communicate with employees that clearly show that they want to rise to the occasion and move up in the organization.
