      Pros

      Room for movement and career opportunities are plenty. There are many opportunities to change your work and take on new challenges.

      Cons

      There is no money available for managers to show appreciation to the employees. School councils give money for food sometimes but all other forms of appreciation come out of the pockets of Principals and Assistant Principals. Gifts of appreciation for staff are paid for by staff. The Board gives gifts of years of service... but this does not make a difference in the day to day. There is also alot of "who you know" in hiring practices. There are processes in place from HR, but people find work arounds. The culture is one where this is accepted and normal. Cronyism doesn't go away because you have to interview 3 people, it goes away when leadership makes a commitment to the values of merit over who you know hiring practices. .. when hiring is based on who you know.. you can guarantee marginalized people will be left out and a lack of diversity in the system will be perpetuated.

      Underfunded, large class sizes, long hours of overtime you're not paid for, extra curricular involvement with no pay. Wage really isn't adequate for the job.
