    I have been working at Mobile County Public School System

    Pros

    This is a nice place to work. No problems with staff or boss. Have to get use to the students

    Cons

    The pay is not that great. The traffic is congested when school is starting up in the mornings and in the afternoon

    Advice to Management

    Evaluate the employees and consider them for incentive pay raises or some type of benefits because the Administrative Assistants are very important to the school system.

    I worked at Mobile County Public School System full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Grow the minds of impressionable children.

    Cons

    Working with students who don't care about their education who purposefully and actively interfere with the learning process of others.

    Advice to Management

    In failing schools under adverse conditions, do not let go of teachers who are improving. Many of the issues these teachers are facing are caused by poor management processes.

    I worked at Mobile County Public School System

    Pros

    Great benefits and working hours. I would only recommend to friends who love children.

    Cons

    Only getting paid once a month and the bad behavior of the children, especially in middle and high school. Plus the principals are afraid of parents and seldom back up or support the teachers.

    Advice to Management

    Support the teachers!!!

    I have been working at Mobile County Public School System full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Benefits are excellent, retirement is decent, and my particular facility was clean and inviting.

    Cons

    Curriculum department is largely incompetent as a whole, where elementary education is concerned. People in those positions are out-of-touch with teaching today, and are therefore, not qualified to lead a corps of teachers.

    Advice to Management

    The superintendent needs power over the school board, as is the case with most school systems. Our school board is incompetent and only hires superintendents who will allow them to puppeteer.
