West Des Moines Community Schools Reviews
Pros – Great co-workers, good benefits.
Cons – No opportunity for professional growth. There is no career--just jobs. Budget constraints for FY2015 and FY2016 will make workloads heavy hamper morale.
Advice to Senior Management – The professional development opportunities are pointless if the experience and learning don't lead to promotions or additional responsibility.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
Pros – High quality of teachers, newer technology, most students motivated to learn.
Cons – Public school district...hands tied by bureaucracy sometimes...not able to always get rid of under-performing teachers. Sometimes it is "who you know" rather than "what you know".
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
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 Senior Management – Get a handle on the gossip and back stabbing and reprimand the teachers for allowing it to continue in their classrooms.
