Mastery is filled with great people who really love what they do, the children they teach, and the community they serve.
Administrative Assistant - Attendance Manager (Former Employee), Philadelphia, PADecember 4, 2013
Pros: close to home, helped the community, rewarding
Cons: not much money in education on the entry level, regardless of how hard you work or how much you love what you do
No two days are the same when you work with children. Being surrounded with great people who is in the profession for the love of education and the belief that every child, no matter his/her economic status, deserves a quality education was one of the best experiences of my life!

The hardest part about being the Admin Assist at any school is that you're – more... pulled in a million different directions constantly. You must be able to wear MANY hats! There were mornings when I was answering the phones, answering the doors, replying to emails, drying tears, applying band-aids, and logging late students all at the same time! But it was worth it! Knowing that helped improved the life of a child on any level makes the job rewarding. – less

Fast paced and student centered
Assistant Principal of School Culture (Former Employee), Philadelphia, PASeptember 20, 2013
Mastery is committed to ensuring their students prepare for and continue on to higher education. A typical day at work would involve providing services to students, parents and staff. The hardest part of the job was seeing a student give up and not return to school. The most enjoyable part of the job was helping to inspire hope in a student and encouraging – more... those who were already self motivated. – less

They expect a lot and remind you that your expendable.
Teacher (Current Employee), PhiladelphiaJanuary 27, 2013
Pros: school calendar: summers and holidays off
Cons: work/life balance is poor.
In my experience they use the company values of 'one team' and 'grit' to mean work your butt off even if it's not in your area of expertise and do it with little resources.

Good idea, but just not for everybody.
Specials Teacher (Current Employee), Philadelphia, PAJune 4, 2012
Pros: great pay
Cons: long hours, tough kids, low moral, poor work/life balance.
I work at one of their many campuses and it was almost depressing at times. The moral there was very low. The kids are a tough bunch but once you reach them they are GREAT! The co-workers were very supportive but a lot of the ones who were the most supportive left during the course of the school year.
It's a very demanding job so being organized and – more... not minding to have a slightly unbalanced work/life balance you can be very successful.
The class sizes are VERY large here and at times overwhelming.
The administration will expect you to always be flexible even if it means to teach a class you're not comfortable with.
I can't imagine how doing stuff like that would make anyone say this is a great place however, I know for a fact that this attitude does not speak for every campus. – less
