Suggestions for improvement

  • More managers should promote learning and development for their staff, and continue to develop their management and coaching skills.

What I like about the company

I feel like my contribution is valued. I believe we are striving towards a better culture. It is a beautiful campus.

What I dislike about the company

It can be very siloed and there is no one organization culture. We are working towards breaking down those silos. It can just be slow moving.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I think we are moving in the right direction, it’s just staying on course to create a more collaborative workforce. Perhaps more requirements of managers (as opposed to suggestions) for training and staff development.

What I like about the company

It’s a very awesome and diverse place to work. I feel like I’m making a difference. I have a great manager.

What I dislike about the company

It can be siloed, which makes collaboration difficult, but we are actively moving towards better collaboration. There are situations with managers who are very bright in their area of expertise, but aren’t great at managing, coaching, and developing their employees (not my situation, but I know this happens for others).

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would implement a more flexible working program including working from home and flexible hours. I would also provide more opportunities for women to advance.

What I like about the company

My old position allowed me to work from home one day a week which was great. My new position has a strong commitment to professional development.

What I dislike about the company

There is too much decentralization. We need one set of rules and policies instead of each school having their own.
