    Pros

    Working with Manchester school district is so fulfilling and everyone in the district is very professional. Whenever I needed assistance I was treated with the up most respect.

    Cons

    The only downsides to working with Manchester school district I would have to say is I would have liked to be working every single day rather than, sometimes only four days a week.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to the management at Manchester school district would have to be keeping up the great work with communicating with their employees and giving everyone the same respect that everyone deserves.

    Pros

    The salary is good. The school I have worked at are good. Most teachers have been there a long time.

    Cons

    They lay a lot of people of in the spring because they do not know their budget until June. The teachers contract says that teachers have to know in April or May if their contracts are going to be renewed. They have to call people back after the budget is approved and that is usually late in the season.

    I have been working at Manchester School District full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent teaching staff, at most schools, that care about their students. Teachers must be certified and meet state Highly Qualified Teacher status.

    Cons

    The Mayor of Manchester and the School Board do not have backgrounds in education. They try to run the district like a business with no concern about the staff or students. Subsequently, the schools are underfunded. They lack current texts and supplies. Salary increases and health benefits are falling by the wayside. moral of the staff is at an all-time low. The Mayor, School Board, and Aldermen care only about their political futures and they cater the slum lords and business owners only.

    Advice to Management

    One of the best ways to increase your tax base is to insure a good school system by working with the schools, NOT against them. Everyone is tired of the lip service. Time to respect the students and staff of the Manchester School District!

    Pros

    great people to work with at Manchester School District. great place to start a career, not the best to end it there

    Cons

    not always enough work. Too many people work here and wonder if some people have the right qualifications for working there

    Advice to Management

    Recruit people from Southern New Hampshire University that have Master's Degrees in a range of fields. It seems that once people are in the positions they never leave when they should
