    I worked at Manatee County School District full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Most of the school staff leadership are good to work with. Time off and holidays.

    Cons

    Network management Vince Hoaglin program unreliable. Unprofessional leadership, no organization to what needs to be done. Poor leadership skills for our department. It's a sad place to work with this kind of department leadership in place. Cannot manage money and we the tax payer pay for these mistakes.

    Advice to Management

    Replace the Vince Hoaglin program with new leadership for a great team to lead. Ineffective management in network services.

    I worked at Manatee County School District full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are many needed teachers to serve. They are needy but do not want to hear it; Students want someone who wants to teach the teachers how to teach.

    Cons

    The staff, the principal, and the members of the academic team do not know who they should follow. As a specialist in school improvement, the teachers would come to the specialists but not do what they said they would do out of fear of the union and the teachersl

    Advice to Management

    Get up out of your offices and spend time with the teachers. Let them know you are there out there with them to make a difference in what they can do and what they must do.

    Pros

    Some kind coworkers, some students/families appreciate you, summers/holidays automatically off, paid twice a month, decent health ins

    Cons

    Pay cuts, powerless union, ignorant/inexperienced principals/assistant principals, horrible student discipline

    Advice to Management

    Seriously consider if you would be able to be a teacher in the conditions you are asking teachers to teach in... multiple preps, no support with discipline

    Pros

    There was a lot of time off- holidays, winter break etc.

    Cons

    wages were cut due to mismanagement of funding, benefit costs increased. Management overall was not good. Had to work extra hours I was not paid for just to get the job done. Kept being made promises that were not kept by those above me.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house and get new management.
