  2. "Assistant teacher"

    Pros

    There are no pros to working at this school. It is poorly managed, and treats the teachers with no respect. The director is a very nasty and abusive lady. This school is not nurturing or loving. I would never send my children there.

    Cons

    Lots of turnover, lack of stability. Too much drama between management and staff. Communication is very poor. Uncollaborative organization.

    Advice to Management

    Start to have some gratitude to the teachers who work so hard. The school is not monastery

    I worked at Trinity Wall Street full-time

    Pros

    Job security - Due to such as frequent turnover in employees, they desperately need teachers to meet the child/teacher ratio. This means your job is secure for as long as you need a steady pay check.

    Benefits - Good medical, dental, and vision care

    Cons

    Management - They constantly criticize teachers and offer absolutely no support or advice for problems that arise in such a chaotic setting. They turn simple issues into stressful political games, leaving most teachers with a low sense of motivation. They can also be very gossipy, leading employees to feel paranoid about how others feel about them.

    Class Dynamics - Management willingly accepts students with obvious behavioral/cognitive disabilities and assigns them to teachers with no experience in special needs education. This often leads to an incredibly chaotic, depressing, and sometimes scary classroom environment. The liability of mixing these students together leads to an unbearable stress level that persuades many teachers to quit with little to no notice.

    Parents - The majority of parents are rude, ignorant, and treat teachers like their daytime babysitters. Most parents will blame teachers for their child's behavioral issues, refusing to accept responsibility of their child's actions. This creates a road block for progress when dealing with the students. Again, this creates a lack of motivation in teachers. Why try to instill discipline in the students when they go home every night and get everything they want? It is terribly sad.

    Advice to Management

    If you treat your employees with respect and compassion, you will get better work out them. Make them feel like they are part of a team. This will lead to happier teachers, happier students, and a better work/life balance.

    I worked at Trinity Wall Street full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits, easy hours, summer Fridays, free food, nice offices

    Cons

    Way too many differing opinions on what Trinity should be; an organizational mess; office politics; not a place to gain hard skills that are relevant outside the church; lots of turnover

    Advice to Management

    Don't let perfection be the enemy of the good

    I worked at Trinity Wall Street part-time

    Pros

    Friendly environment and most employees are kind. The overall mission is great, in wanting to provide services all over the world. The properties owned by Trinity are beautiful.

    Cons

    Where do I begin. Management (especially Sr. Management) needs major improvement. Too much blame game happening and they don't provide a culture for real growth. There have been employees there for decades who are resistant to change. There is a real problem with management who are not LEADERS.

    Advice to Management

    Cultivate an environment for growth and change. Stop focusing so much on the employees, focus more on senior leaders and management so that real change could occur!!! Work your way down and you will see how employees follow. Lead by example. BUILD LEADERS FIRST.

    I worked at Trinity Wall Street full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits, kind people, employee trainings, lots of free food, easy work, good work life balance, steady job

    Cons

    Culture is old school, not mission driven, too much ego to work around; little room for career growth since people stay forever (for the benefits)

    Advice to Management

    Focus more in all you can do to make the world a better place instead of focusing in ego and drama

    I have been working at Trinity Wall Street full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I like working for an organization that helps people and has a mission I believe in. The pay is good and the benefits are great. The work-life balance is amazing. It's difficult to be promoted but not impossible. The organization is well-funded so you don't have to worry about fundraising and budget cuts due to funding.

    Cons

    Each department has different culture/standards. Some employees stay 25+ years and/or their entire career has been at Trinity so there isn't always lot of fresh thinking/best practices. There has been inconsistency with hiring - I work with some incredibly talented and intelligent people and some who are incompetent. There is a lot of gossip and complaining about some staff members not "practicing what they preach."

    A lot of hierarchy, which can be viewed as a pro or a con.

    You can get a lot of great experience here, but it may not all be relevant if you leave the Episcopal world for another job.

    Advice to Management

    Set standards across all departments and let people go who aren't performing. Be more rigorous when hiring. Find a way for departments to be more integrated.
