    Pros

    A very good group of people who are talented teachers. They are very helpful, flexible and always willing to guide you in the right direction.

    Cons

    It is only part-time so the pay is not like a full time job, and no benefits.

    automatic pay raise with the passing of each year, nice vacation time 10-week summer

    I have been working at New Haven Public Schools full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pretty good benefit package, laid back environment and some supervisors are easy-going. Is a good place for someone at entry level. The work week is 35 hours with an hour lunch break and 2 - 15 minute breaks. Free parking, fitness room and snack machines available to employees.

    Cons

    Heavy workload without comparable compensation. Not a good place to work if one is looking for advancement. Advancement is very difficult and little to no reward for hard workers. Too many employees in an office/work area. Favoritism is given to some clerks/secretaries. Work load is the same as an administrative assistant.

    Advice to Management

    Support staff (secretaries/clerks) should be paid based on their experience and knowledge as well as appreciated more

    Pros

    One of the best things about working for the Board of Ed in New Haven are the people I work with and the students I coach.

    Cons

    Sometimes it takes a long time to get things done but not often.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people in the schools
