    I worked at Los Angeles USD part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This is a great school because of the culture. It feels like everyone is invested in making it great and their is vibrant energy all around. As a TA I worked with a couple teachers helping in whatever they needed.

    Cons

    As a part-time employee you're not getting paid a ton for your time and you don't receive any benefits, like health insurance.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes there is a perception that wealthy, contributing parents have too much influence over the school.

    I worked at Los Angeles USD full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits. There are some very good schools that employ teachers that are doing an excellent job.

    Cons

    No discipline policy at most schools .
    Administration has been trained in Nazi Germany. The evaluations are meaningless and lengthy . A lot of the curriculum has been dumbed down to support a world that wants to make sure that illiteracy rules .

    Advice to Management

    Get back to basics . The students need discipline and the teachers can't be responsible for everything. Teachers are unhappy and unsupported . Wake up before it's too late .

    I have been working at Los Angeles USD full-time

    Pros

    It is a very large district and as such, has multiple school sites in various cities of Los Angeles county to select from.

    Cons

    Lack of raises, lack of sensitivity from some higher level administrators

    Advice to Management

    Need sensitivity training and compliment employees more

    I have been working at Los Angeles USD part-time

    Pros

    Great pay and a fair share of great schools. If you are a good substitute teacher the only way you will receive lots of calls is networking and proving yourself.

    Cons

    So large that you are treated as just as another body. When you are a new employee there is not much help or resources available to guide you.

    Advice to Management

    Orientation needs to be more extensive and informative. A list of schools in your calling area along with phone numbers would be helpful. Staff in the substitute unit are pretty rude.

    I worked at Los Angeles USD full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Despite all the anti-public school propaganda, some of the finest teachers I've ever known work for LAUSD -- they are earnest men and women trying to do the most good for the most people.

    Cons

    Whatever selectors there are for success at LAUSD, they seem to favor a type of ego-driven, politically-fueled, money-hungry tyrant (and those who benefit from them) for the top positions. The closer you get to the top at LAUSD, the shadier it seems to get.

    Advice to Management

    Your biggest asset is the teachers working for you. I promise you that.
