  • Create new positions for teacher mentors who are there specifically to aid the teacher in being effective and efficient. Other teachers as mentors do not count. They already have enough of their own responsibilities and can't help as much as needed. It should be a position specifically designed to be at the aid of every teacher. One mentor could have a handful of teachers though.

What I like about the company

Felt very supported by my administrators at the school, as well as other teachers. Fun and safe environment. The school I worked at was great at trusting it's employees and their expertise rather than creating more demands than necessary on them.

What I dislike about the company

The education system in general makes it extremely hard for teachers who are in their first couple of years. The demands are insurmountable and that leaves little room to practice your own creativity and independence in teaching. You're forced to follow everyone else's lesson plans to survive. It is also hard to fully meet the needs of every students like you would want to, or attempt some of the ideas that education is pushing. You're too busy trying to complete what's already in front of you, so transitioning to a new method is virtually impossible.

  • I am not sure what I would change. They have added a lot of wellness programs, so I think just more things to get employees healthy.

What I like about the company

They were very supportive during a time that I was struggling with family issues.

What I dislike about the company

I think parking could be better.

  • The lower level employees need a salary increase. For the work I do and knowledge that I have about technology I should be compensated better.

What I like about the company

Great insurance offered for employees and family. Good people to work with and the schedule is awesome.

What I dislike about the company

The building is very old and not well insulated. It is very cold in the winter and we can't adjust the heat level.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Be less afraid of lawsuits and allow supervision to effectively supervise and make positive change. Stop canceling employee raises while continuing to give managers raises. Improve promotion process to be more fair and logical, less biased. Remember that you have shift workers (10, 12, and 24 hr employees) and make holiday pay equal to hours worked. More health/well-being incentives would be great and make them work with shift workers schedules.

What I like about the company

I have been with the County for 15 years. There is job stability.

What I dislike about the company

Morale and support of employees have always been lacking.

  • I will make sure that employees got the cost of living raise every year. Going 2 to 3 years without a raise is tough.

What I like about the company

Your paycheck is there every two weeks on time. Time off is always approved. The on-site fitness and health facilities are great.

What I dislike about the company

The new retirement plan. And class and pay study. People are not being paid for the work that they do.
