Doesn't Recommend
No opinion of CEO

Pros

Wonderful benefits package, time off, and breaks during the school year.

Cons

Very little pay for the hazards of the job, too much negativity, incessant gossiping by teachers and staff. Very little real leadership from the teachers.

Advice to Management

Get a handle on the gossip and back stabbing and reprimand the teachers for allowing it to continue in their classrooms.

    I worked at West Des Moines Community Schools (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I loved my coworkers and the children. They also paid very well and you've got to love state retirement benefits.

    Cons

    Out of touch management and spoiled parents. Some very early morning hours and outdated policies.

    Advice to Management

    Start listening to your employees more and telling spoiled parents to teach their kids how to function on a basic level

    Pros

    Most people are very energized about their jobs and want to do their best in educating students. This is a high achieving School District.

    Cons

    The benefits are good but the salary levels are lower than in the private sector. Have to decide cost benefits of that looking at the whole package.

    Advice to Management

    Need to evaluate all employees and get rid of non- performing staff.
