    I have been working at UNO Charter Schools full-time

    Pros

    Great teachers and students! The teachers want to do right within their schools. The teachers have the skills; they just need support.

    Cons

    Support is inconsistent and the turnover within the network speaks for itself. There's a lack of clear vision within the network and this causes a trickle down affect.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your community of educators through actions that support and uplift your teachers, as opposed to micromanaging the network like a poorly managed business.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at UNO Charter Schools full-time

    Pros

    There are many parents that are quite involved so student behavior is really excellent. The salary is very good.

    Cons

    There are extreme and many changes throughout the school year that require the workers to be more than flexible. There is not enough transparency with how future plans are discussed. Although I received wonderful evaluations, I was transferred to a different school into a different job title and then laid off at the end of the year because my job title was phased out.

    Advice to Management

    Please give more clear information with plenty of time for the worker to make other plans.

    Pros

    Students are well-behaved, it is unionized, good benefits and decent compensation

    Cons

    Management is inexperienced, classrooms lack technology and resources, weekly meetings are useless, MTs are unqualified and laughable, hours are long, expectations are quite demanding and little support is offered. Administration does not have students' best interest in mind when making decisions. This place feels like a big corporation.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your teachers and do what you can to make their lives easier, not harder. They are the backbone of your institution.
