    I have been working at Ravenscroft School full-time

    Pros

    I've bounced around to a lot of places before finally settling here. Everyone goes out of their way to be incredibly welcoming and inclusive. They are incredible about maintaining a work life balance.

    Cons

    It is a very flat organization, so there is very little room for upward mobility. The culture of the school is steeped in tradition, which is great, once you figure out what is going on and why.

    Advice to Management

    Do not assume everyone knows what is going on all the time. Surprises as far as events or technology do not go over well.
