no motivational process
Lawyer (Former Employee) –  Worcester, MAAugust 24, 2016
Typical bureaucracy, there was no motivation or review process. There was no advancement. There was also no guidance or training. This was a place where careers go to die.

Horrible City
Marketing manager (Former Employee) –  Main libraryJuly 31, 2015
If you have integrity do not sell your soul. The City human resources will not be on your side if you need help. The library administration is terrible and will belittle you. Everyone is lazy.

Great place to work
Aerospace Science Instructor (Current Employee) –  Worcester, MAFebruary 13, 2014
Typical day at work consist of teaching grades 9-12 leadership education and aerospace science. I have learned that as a teacher I get as much education as I give. The students educate a teacher in ways that are wonderful. The management is supportive, helpful and knowledgeable. My co-workers are the greatest and are there for you when you need them. The hardest part of the job is staying up with all the changes in the education system and the teacher evaluation system. The most enjoyable part of the job is the students.
Pros
the ability to stay young with the students
Cons
student confrontations and student discipline
