No merit based pay, overly focused on educational background being in Education for teachers vs. being a subject matter expert.
Systems Specialist/Computer Technician (Current Employee) – Ashburn, VA – September 3, 2017
Typical public / government salary scale where raises are handed out across the board, based on years of service and pay increases are based on how much education you have not how productive or good you are. So you can earn an online Master's degree in anything and it will count towards a bump in your salary, even if it's unrelated. You can be great at your job, get great evaluations and another person in the same job who is average or even underperforming will get the same step increase as you every year.
Good benefits, obviously summers off if you teach.
