    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Ministry of Education Trinidad and Tobago (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexibility in job
    being able to grow and learn with well rounded and educated collagues

    Cons

    Ministry (SSSD) has numerous hard workers, but the management seemed to not understand how to properly tie these arms together. There was (and im guessing still is) a high turnover rate, employees were always demotivated to do much needed work and finally, decisions being made were never relayed to those who they may affect. It seemed that you were always being caught off guard. Never made me or others feel secure.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to school and study leadership, management skills, and proper change management techniques.

    Nothing else to do witha BA degree.

    Rotate security personnel to prevent security staff from setting up fiefdoms and molesting boys and girls. Issue immediate and heavy penalties for students who disregard others' right to a learning environment.
