Nasty people. Favoritism. Take care of yourself.
The work environment and culture is unstable if you go against the principal or her minions your job is at stake. The environment is unstable and very one-sided you cannot trust anyone you work with. The turnover rate is out of control unfortunately the majority of the employees are Hispanic and a large portion of the teachers cannot even speak English.
My fellow teachers were back stabbing meanies who actually complained about me to the assistant principal about the fast that I didn't eat lunch with them ..it was because I had too much to.do during lunch. I packed my stiff up.and walked out on a planning day and sang in joy all the way home!!!
There is favoritism. How you are treated depends on how well you are liked by administration and the friends of administration. Because administration changes so often in one year, there is no job stability for teachers; when new administration is brought in, they usually want their own set of teachers. Professionalism is not maintained by administration, which leaves some teachers vulnerable and unprotected. The environment is high-stress due to situations which either are not handled or are handled improperly.
It is an extremely toxic environment, depending upon how the school is lead. When administration is unwilling to serve as effective leaders, the environment is similar to that of large ultra-competitive corporations. When you're not useful to them anymore, they get rid of you.
High teacher turnover due to how they are treated and the unrealistic workload on top of being underpaid
Typical corporate but more of a wanna be corporate. Not very professional in how they do things and not willing to spend any money on trying to be corporate and professional in what they do. Everything is expected to be homegrown and created at no cost. Very cheap company.

Cut throat environment. Corporate office is not focused on academic success. High turnover throughout the schools managed by CSUSA. No stability to launch sucess, especially at the schools in the Indy area. One high school has had 5 principals in 4 years.

Bad. Teachers hate it there and that impacts the students. Teachers themselves are great. Real troopers because they are there for the kids.
