The culture of the company is awesome. They celebrate everything. Please are genuinely nice to your face and appear to be very helpful, as long as you aren't their direct coworker.
Some expectations are not realistic. Not all Directors /Principals are leaders. They are good at operations, but when it comes to dealing with staff issues, keeping down drama, and not giving out employee personal information, they fail.
Teamwork is good.
Depending on the department you have room to work freely. At a school, you do not have freedom to work freely, you do not have freedom to do your work at all. Especially if you work at a school where staff is always absent and the Principal is always missing in action.
There are televised bi-weekly board meeting open to the public to learn about everything that's going on in the district, including disciplinary actions to high level executives, which seems to be a lot.
Many men are promoted over women. There are a few men in leadership positions that have a hard time dealing with women in leadership positions. There are a lot of women in leadership positions.
Umgang mit älteren Kollegen
The company is always looking for fresher, younger faces. I worked in a department for almost 20 years and a younger male was promoted over me 4 times in that department. He had only been with us for 2 years.
Karriere / Weiterbildung
They offer free classes for career development, ongoing development and also incentives for taking those classes.
Gehalt / Sozialleistungen
Overworked and underpaid. I'm speaking about the office staff. You have to fight for promotions. Raises are negotiated by a union so don't even think about asking for one.
Hostile environment most of the time. Especially at schools and in HR offices
There's really no pressure to work long hours because they know they must pay you. Any overtime available is usually communicated in advance. They are a family oriented business.
Company portrays fair labor practices and they really try. But if a supervisor doesn't want you there, they know how to legally get you out.
- I don't know where to start without pointing the finger
Free full benefits all all employees. Great prices when adding dependents on vision and dental.
Some grievances are swept under the rug. Management does not inform new employees of their rights and will use that ignorance against them as scare tactics.
