    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at West Virginia Department of Education as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The Governor's School Internship program pays well and you get to learn a lot about the state government. The department they assign you to usually falls within your interest. The internship pays very well.

    Cons

    Parking is kind of a drag. You have to arrive considerably early so you can catch the shuttle so you will not be late. This is a minor inconvenience however.


  2. "Low pay"

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at West Virginia Department of Education full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Teaching students and interacting with the community around the school. Teaching something new every day. Good working relationship with other employees

    Cons

    Very low pay for advanced degree. No opportunity for advancement unless higher degree is obtained for administration. Lateral movement is the only way. Does not embrace change.

    Advice to Management

    allow staff to work from home when needed. All do anyway, but must take leave
