    I worked at New York City Department of Education full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    You can shape a vision for a school and build capacity in staff. You can impact hundreds of children's lives in this role. NYCDOE offers a great salary and great benefits. There are lots of programs for you to rise as a teacher to a leader through leadership pathways.

    Cons

    NYCDOE is so big and sprawling. Your "support" team is really a gigantic system that doesn't really care about you because there are thousands of other employees. You are just a cog in the wheel.

    Advice to Management

    Let principals give 360 feedback on superintendents and superintendent's teams. They are being rated by people that don't actually work with them.
