    I have been working at Los Angeles County Office of Education full-time (More than a year)

    - Make a positive impact on the community.

    I have been working at Los Angeles County Office of Education full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Definitely the pros are the people there you will never find a worksite where you can find lifelong friends because you don't promote through favoritism you have to test for everything so it's not a cut-throat type of job

    Cons

    It's education. We all know that the field that is taking the worst from budget cuts as education so although I've been there for going on 22 years I don't make much I don't make much more than when I started

    Advice to Management

    Stand up for your employees there's a lot of politics there they do need a little bit more education when it comes to always having to be politically correct instead of doing the right thing
