Company Culture

There is no culture. The current administration prefers to give top-down directives rather than building a workplace with consistant expectations, goals and/or communication. If anything, the 'culture'is a reactive one, led by poor leadership. The highly qualified staff are mandated to 'put out fires'rather than assist in building collaborative relationships.

Support from management

Please read above. The current administrator and selected team is ineffective in meeting the needs of their staff. Staff members are seen as replaceable with interchangeable skill sets. Professional development to align staff skill sets is does not exist.

Teamwork

Highly qualified staff who are not trusted to use their skill set. This leads to ineffective team work because the staff feel too paranoid or restricted to take 'risks' that meet student need!

Freedom to work independently

Absolutely not. You are not trusted- as a professional, an individual or collaborative team member. Independence, free thought or respectful disagreement is seen as a weakness or detriment at LASEC.

Internal Communication

The LASEC administrative team relies on a top-down, reactive and directive-driven leadership style. Little input is sought from employees to guide mentorship, systemic change or strategic growth. This impacts employee satisfaction and retention, as the staff feel that they are not trusted to give input or feedback on their own role and/or responsibilities. Further, there is no union to provide feedback for administrative decisions, so employees feel little to no oversight for or advocacy fron their employers.

Work-Life Balance

There is no union. There is no administrative oversight. There is no one to advocate for the staff. Work-Life Balance is NONEXISTENT at LASEC. Even when you are not at work, you feel pressured to be more unavailable. It is ineffective, stress-inducing and omnipresent. This is the WORST feature in working for this company.

Company Image

Client school districts are frustrated with LASEC directives. Little to no support to build relationships with client districts. Employees assignments are quickly and frequently changed with little regard for client relationships or trust.

Job Security

Staff feel disposable.

Workplace Safety

My experience here resulted in years of workplace bullying and intimidation.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Leadership needs to change. Current administrator bullies and belittles staff members.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Employee job responsibilities should be defined more. Everyone in the company should know the job responsibilities of each position.

What I like about the company

Everyone at my job are always willing to work together. I have learned a lot about school business management that will help me with my career. My supervisor empowers me to make decisions and she also gives me assignments that will help me in my career.

What I dislike about the company

I disapprove of the long meetings in which turns into grievance sessions.
