    If you come from the Beltway, unless you take slower alternate routes, you will incur costs for taking the Dulles Toll Road.

    I worked at K12 full-time

    Pros

    If you are new and want to learn a thing or two, this might be the place.

    Cons

    If you are an experienced professional, there are hardly any chances of growth. Way too much politics and way too many meetings for every small little thing. Decision making is paralyzed. Salary and Benefits are not great. 401K contribution is minuscule. The long hours and stress ain't worth it. Plenty of opportunities outside, specially in IT.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to reach your employees below Director level. Talk to them. They are the one's doing the real work. There was no exit interview scheduled for me. I left for a much better opportunity. Industry paying much more and slotting people in right positions. The annual performance reviews are very subjective and don't reflect the work put in.

    Hire managers who do not have a criminal background and stop being prejudice when promoting and hiring blacks in upper management.
