Must work any hours required (40+), management is not supportive, school culture is poor, employees have exceedingly low morale based on the way they
Certified School Psychologist (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – September 22, 2016
The changing environment and educational reforms make education an undesirable field. There is no respect for advanced degrees. Work conditions are poor. Management/administration is not supportive. No room for growth. Threats and harassment are not uncommon.
Consultant (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – November 17, 2016
Job was a lot of fun when the Board of Education was in downtown Atlanta. Once they moved to North Fulton County, the commute time tripled to an hour in the morning and ninety minutes in the evening. If it rained, the commute would easily add another 30 minutes to the commute.

Paraprofessional (Former Employee) – Roswell, GA – January 26, 2017
The is a great place to work. This offers a challenge to be creative, patience and caring. You do have to deal with many different attitudes. There are different age groups to work with if you do not have the patience to work with kids with difficult attitudes.
It's a great sense of satisfaction when you can contribute to the growth of a child
It's can be very difficult dealing with unruly children and their parents

School Technology Specialist (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – April 1, 2015
In 1997, I happened to interview with an incredible principal for a brand new school that was being put together by this visionary leader. The next 4 years working for him were simply amazing. This combined with an incredible superintendent made the Fulton County Schools one of the premiere systems in the southeast. Unfortunately, through several changes in leadership and a power hungry school board, the school system seems to have lost its way. I have seen many of my best colleagues leave the profession or migrate to other systems.
The overall morale of the employees has to be at an all time low. I would be shocked if anyone could show me otherwise.
Lots of money being spent on facilities.
No raises or step increases in years for teachers.

Teacher of the Gifted (TAG) (Former Employee) – Sandy Springs, GA – August 29, 2013
I enjoyed working with my students, especially when we were involved in deep discussions and overcoming significant learning challenges. The management was not what I hoped for at first, but with new leadership things got much better. I felt appreciated for the work I did, but I did seek that kind of autonomy that I had enjoyed earlier in my teaching career. I like to do things the way I wish although I realize that my way may not always coincide with the wishes of the management. In those moments, of course, I found my work distasteful, but overall my experience was smooth with few problems. Without question, my students were the most enjoyable part of my job in the Fulton County Schools.
Good working conditions, excellent 8th grade TAG students
