Company Culture

The last couple of years I was there, there appeared to be a cloud walking into the school that staff could feel made a depressing environment.

Support from management

The biggest problem in management is the Headmaster who has been allowed to make all decisions without anyone able to disagree with him He is a dictator.

Teamwork

The majority work well together without much support of management.

Internal Communication

Very little communication until after decisions were made.

Gender Equality

Employees that African American or prefer a certain sexual preference are treated much better.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Not really an age issue there but if a teacher, etc. did something that may have just been a mistake, their contract was not renewed, even if they were a very popular teacher with the parents.

Office / Work Environment

Conditions were good if you have the right supervisor.

Company Image

Lot of discussions behind closed doors of employee treatment.

Job Security

Everyone that I knew was always in fear of losing their job and looking for a different job.

Challenging Work

I loved the job and most of the people. But management always said we were one big family. That wasn't the case.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I think the climate will change once the Headmaster leaves.

What I like about the company

I really enjoyed working with some of my fellow employees.

What I dislike about the company

Employees were not treated equally.
