    Pros

    Staff was very friendly and very helpful most of the time. Grades were done on the computer and each teacher had their own laptop.

    Cons

    Very little help with school supply money. Parents were relatively uninvolved and many students were very behind their peers academically when entering Kindergarten (didn't know any numbers or ABCs). Teachers were expected to clean and vacuum their own classrooms. Teachers were expected to follow management style teaching to the point where they wanted you to read word for word out of a manual to the students for everyday reading instruction. Very testing focused.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your teachers to teach.

    I worked at Mosaica Education full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The company has a great reputation for making sure that students learn all types of history and bringing it to life through it's Paragon curriculum.

    Cons

    I know that the Mosaica school school that I was at was not the typical Mosaica school. However, there was very little support for the Paragon curriculum, and there was even difficulty locating the curriculum. I believe this was because we were the only school in Chicago and there was no local team present to mold the school in the form of the other Mosaica schools. We also had to share a building with another school, with the same name, that caused some confusion but more scheduling conflicts because we had to share the cafeteria and gymnasium; things that have nothing to do with learning but can pose issues for learning.

    Advice to Management

    Stick with the model you have created, because it works. If you can not fulfill this model, don't open a school. It is a failure for the students and the faculty.

    I worked at Mosaica Education full-time

    Pros

    None. Company presently under receivership by people who aren't forth coming and honest with employees whose likelihood these jobs relied on.

    Cons

    This company is in the shape it is because of poor management and it's bad business practices. Brian G. Is the only exception to that.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of everyone person in a managent position as they're all incompetent at best.

    I worked at Mosaica Education full-time

    Pros

    There was the opportunity to advance as long as the Administration liked you.

    Cons

    There was a high turnover for staff and administration. They did not enforce discipline. There were long mandatory hours that exceeded those of over schools.

    Advice to Management

    Being consistent and caring about the students and staff would help.

    I worked at Mosaica Education full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great regional and local education and management professionals who were truly committed to quality K-12 education and providing highly effective management services.

    Cons

    Senior Executives lost sight of the mission, and though the management team sustained the company and, by extension, local schools; the sins of the seniors created a tsunami that could not save the company.

    Advice to Management

    For their failure to see the inevitable, the people responsible for the demise of this company should keep out of K-12 education management... forever.

    I have been working at Mosaica Education full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Freedom to teach unrestricted, collaborate freely with co-workers on what is best for the students and actually get to implement it. I absolutely loved my co-workers and the faculty as a whole, especially my boss

    Cons

    Pay is less than what high school graduates makes, with no track to really increase it any. Overworked with 12 hour days being the normal but its ok for the company because we are set salary. I was the 4/5th grade teacher, recess monitor, PE teacher, lunch aide, after school coordinator, and coach

    Pros

    Fun coworkers, great students, holiday schedule.

    Cons

    Company focused on squeezing profits instead of increasing student learning.

    Advice to Management

    Consider ways to provide teacher incentives instead of a revolving door.

    Pros

    During the last 5 years of existence under the current TOP leadership, bad business decisions were made. They have now been bought out by Pansophic Learning.

    Cons

    Some schools will not go with the new owners leaving the families wondering what will happen to the school with no educational management team guidance in place.
