    Pros

    TASB is a great place to work. When management talks about a work/life balance, they mean it. It isn't just lip service. This company actually cares about it's employees. They have great benefits and every single person I've interacted with has been professional, courteous and just all around nice.

    Cons

    There is very little to complain about. Things can move a bit slowly at times but I think that is the nature of a not for profit.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    Pros

    Good benefits
    nice people
    Christmas holiday company wide

    Cons

    Won't just let you do your job, always forcing staff to do extracurricular activities and staff must participate or it counts negatively against them at review time regardless of how well you do your actual job.

    Advice to Management

    Let workers do their job

    Pros

    Great benefits, day care onsite. Jim Crow is awesome- a great leader. Good employees. Good location. Good hours. TASB is a great benefit to school districts in Texas.

    Cons

    Micromanagement. Remote working is only available to some, it should be a available to all employees. No room for advancement. Hard to be innovative when you have old managers that don't want to change.

    Advice to Management

    Make managers/supervisors train on how to be a good manager and lead their employees.

    I worked at Texas Association of School Boards full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits! Great potential if the managers get out of the way.

    Cons

    VERY BAD MANAGEMENT! Upper management gets paid stiff salaries and bonuses while the hard working employees are overworked and under paid. They need to CLEAN HOUSE of upper management. They've all been there way too long.

    Advice to Management

    Be a leader. Promote your employees. Get out of the way and listen to their ideas and concerns. Old fogies that aren't willing to be innovative and listen to change need to retire. Sacrifice your hefty annual bonuses and reward the hard working staff under you. Just retire please. Oh wait... then TASB will have no leadership because they haven't LEAD any employees to success. They hinder them from success. Go "TASB ONE"!

    Pros

    Starting pay can be good. Low level job holders can have long careers there.

    Cons

    Upper management finds ways to not pay bonus even if numbers have been met.

    Advice to Management

    The ED Jim Crow need to fully understand what those directly under him are doing to employees. Creating lies and finding ways to eliminate good people, even though they have had excellent results and reviews for years.

    Pros

    I consider myself extremely lucky to work at TASB. It is a wonderful organization with a great mission and fun, friendly people. The organization values its staff, is committed to excellence in service and adheres to the highest ethical standards. The organization's values mirror my own. It is a joy to work here.

    Cons

    Like every organization there are some challenges. Change is hard and we are going through a lot of it. People stay a long time so there is some "we've always done it that way." But the cons pale in comparison to how great it is.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focused on serving members and taking care of staff. The rest will take care of itself.

    Invest resources in change management efforts, the organization has a lot going on and employees need to feel continuous support as they adjust and take on new things. The recent advocacy trainings for employees have been fantastic!
