Suggestions for improvement

  • Schools and their administration need to be more accountable to implementing basic systems and procedures to ensure safe environments that will help students succeed.

What I like about the company

Working with colleagues, students, families to help educate the future.

What I dislike about the company

The political atmosphere. The lack of structure in regards to systems and procedures. Lower expectations for administration in the inner city.

  • Make the district smaller so that personnelle issues would be handled in a timely manner.

What I like about the company

I was warmly welcomed to the job site on my first day. Have had issues with getting correct pay checks. Over all, it is a good place to work.

What I dislike about the company

Too big for individual assistance. Paychecks were incorrect. I was not notified on a timely basis that I was given the position.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Communication needs to be better starting with upper management. Collaboration needs to improve in order for all teams to be able to properly and efficiently do their jobs

What I like about the company

I have a great team I work with. We learn from each other and we try to work in ways that we can complement each other as well. We try to work with other teams in order to provide the best service to our students.

What I dislike about the company

Upper management doesn’t always facilitate for teams to collaborate with one another. Communication can be a problem.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Online time card reporting, automobile allowance, too much paperwork for a tech position

What I like about the company

After being there for a short amount of time I have promoted 3 times, but only because I have the credentials and experience. I am not micromanaged but it's because of the supervisor I have. The benefits are ok. The pay is compatible. People are nice at times.

What I dislike about the company

Hiring family members or friends that aren't qualified for the job, keeping unqualified workers and expecting others to carry them for a very long time, favouritism, mismanagement of funds,

  • They could allow more decisions to be made at the work sites, rather than at headquarters. It should probably be broken up into pieces at different locations. However, that would take a vote by the people in the city.

What I like about the company

I like the actual job, where I can work with students to try to help them reach their potential. I appreciate the willingness to build leaders within the company.

Suggestions for improvement

  • It would help if management would come into the classrooms and talk to the teachers and see if the curriculum and policies they put into place actually work.

What I like about the company

Even though management at my location is not the best, my colleagues that I work with are. We work together and help each other and work as a team.

Company Culture

I had the most amazing principals. When I was hired, the principal was very courteous, approachable, friendly. He made time to talk with every one and politely listen to our requests.
Same school, a new principal. He was a very correct gentleman. He would give encouragement to everyone. I found myself so happy because he was very supportive of my efforts and I I continued my plans that I had when the other principal was there.

Support from management

Every school has a particular culture and I made great progress with my students on a school site where I worked most of my time.

Teamwork

My school supported each other. It wasn't sometimes my work and I took the initiative to help when needed. I found the same response with my coworkers and supervisors.

Freedom to work independently

Sometimes I thought that some people took advantage of my help, but I didn't mind because I truly enjoyed my work and I was learning a lot. It was in my best interest. I was committed to the success of my students and I found the same enthusiasm all around campus. It was invigorating.

Internal Communication

We had a box with all pertinent information. Assam lies, weekly meeting where everyone was invited and allowed to participate.

Gender Equality

They do. Elementary education has more females because we are nurturers.

Attitude towards older colleagues

There was great respect for the older and retired teachers that would come back to work as substitutes.
They were welcome and receive with great enthusiasm.

Career Development

LAUSD has an internal program that made possible for a lot of teacher assistants to accomplish their goal to be the head teacher one day.

Overall compensation for your work

It has a fairly good compensation. The benefits are great for someone that can stay with the company until retirement age.

Office / Work Environment

It was an old school, but things worked properly.

Environmental Friendliness

A lot of fundraisers to support very diverse causes. Attention given to drug prevention.

Work-Life Balance

Workers can decided, but they get dissuaded to leave on school hours.
I worked with special education students and I felt compelled to be there even though some times I should had stayed home with my own sick child.

Company Image

Generally speaking. People get attached to the company through their school site. I can say that in the school that I served the most years I always felt connected with the whole district and identified with its mission.

Job Security

I never thought I could loose my position. When a new principal arrived she published my removal.

Handicapped Accessibility

Yes, they do.

Workplace Safety

They do provide training on all health and safety training.

Challenging Work

I never felt better. School is the place to work. Helping someone to read or understand a concept it a great feeling.

Inclusive / Diverse

Different races, ages and abilities on school staff and students. Great support for Jewish personal, Armenians too.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I don't have idea. Very demoralizing when this happens

What I like about the company

Opportunity of continuous education, great support network. Involvement with the community and the betterment of society through the effort of hundred of employees.

What I dislike about the company

If you get bump around a lot, you loose your focus on the task at hand. You get consumed thinking about constantly loosing your position.
