    I have been working at Minneapolis Schools full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    He benefits are super affordable. This, in part, makes up for the small salaries and inconsistent pay for hourly employees.

    Cons

    Inconsistent pay for hourly workers. Budget cuts. Disorganization. HR is difficult to work with. Low yearly pay. It's easy to burn out.

    Former Employee - Special Education Assistant in Minneapolis, MN

    I worked at Minneapolis Schools full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    good benefits, decent coworkers, kids are amazing

    Cons

    the administration and the district did not do anything when it came down to keeping students safe. they took months to even make changes to moving a child from the school because he was extremely violent and we did not have a one on one that could work with him.

    Advice to Management

    do better. keep your students safe

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Minneapolis Schools for more than a year

    Pros

    -The kids students and families are great! -The benefits are OK -There are a variety of schools and locations to work. -Very diverse student population.

    Cons

    -No tuition assistance program for college. I think the local fast food and package delivery company puts us to shame. I would like my children's teachers to have access to higher education- makes sense to me. -Staff development is just ridiculous and irrelevant to our job. -Way too many staff being paid to do nothing. -Work is primarily school year only, so you get to spend the summer trying to temp. No one wants to train and hire someone that's going to leave them in two months. -Disturbed supervisors are moved around rather than hounded out of the district.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the bloat, force the bad people out, invest in the people you have, get a more diverse staff and find a servant leader that does more than hide at the main offices.
