Company Culture

Overall staff is very positive and friendly. Easy to get to know your co-workers.

Support from management

Training has gotten better over the last few years. They really take feedback and try to improve.

Teamwork

It's all about teamwork here, with new plans in place every year to make teamwork more productive and effective.

Freedom to work independently

Teamwork and structure is big, but that doesn't mean you lose freedom to work independently. You have to know how to balance and be prepared so that your coach/supervisor doesn't have to watch over everything you do.

Internal Communication

There have been times when decisions from upper management were not clearly communicated down to the teachers, which did cause some confusion and difficulty. It is an area acknowledged and they are seeking to do better.

Office / Work Environment

SUPER clean environment. Colorful walls. Materials are always stocked. Teachers also get a stipend to buy materials. We can also request more materials.

Environmental Friendliness

Not sure.

Work-Life Balance

This is where you learn a lot about your organization and prioritizing skills. There are weekly deadlines you must meet in addition to regularly producing graded data. If you're not organized, this is where your work-life balance can tank. If you know how to organize and how to prioritize, you can still have your life.

Company Image

Equitas gets in the news for its accomplishments, but it also shows up now and again for LAUSD and charter school issues. And there are some negative reviews left by former employees, which is not unexpected.

Challenging Work

Depends on your role, your experience, and your growth mindset (vs. fixed mindset).

Inclusive / Diverse

Stronger male presence in the middle schools. Lots of diversity in terms of nationality.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Continue taking in feedback and making changes to help teachers. We need to do better on teacher retention.

What I like about the company

Staff; Summer PD; Access to materials; Clean environment

What I dislike about the company

Long work hour; no overtime for year-long staff; wish pay was higher
