Suggestions for improvement

  • Create a more harmonious environment with more job security. If things improve, more people would remain.

What I like about the company

The administration of both of the schools where I work would often harass me to the point where I can contact the Office of Civil Rights.

What I dislike about the company

The unions are very weak, often leaving employees to their own devices. Principals are often bullying and make the schools where they are in charge in a worse situation. Students with behavior issues do not receive the assistance they need. School employees are often stressed, burned out and fearful of the jobs.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Make sure the people chosen/hired to run the company have experience in the work they are in charge of running/leading.

What I like about the company

I have met like minded people who supported me when needed. I have had the opportunity to see in my 29 years experience with this company the many positive results and impact I have had on many of my clients.

What I dislike about the company

Not being compensated fairly/equally in comparison to other companies doing the same job. Not admitting accountability for decisions/actions taken at the top that have caused negative results and subsequently passing down the blame to those under them.
