Tech work itself is great; the internal politics are horrible
Technical Support Specialist (Current Employee) – Lewiston, ME – April 12, 2018
Working for the I/T Department of Lewiston Public Schools is great when all one is required to deal with is the technology part of the occupation (fixing laptop and desktop computers, installing ceiling-mounted projectors, wiring charging cabinets, getting computer carts ready for deployment, doing help desk tickets, assisting students with hardware and software issues, etc.), but dealing with administrators is a nightmare. When one approaches I/T management for help with legitimate work concerns, little to nothing is ever addressed or done about them. It takes five to six requests for supplies or official documentation to be drawn up before anything is accomplished. It is very frustrating, and often times stressful, to the point where one's anger and resentment can lead to a negative workplace attitude.
Excellent pay, benefits, time off, and retirement package
Administrators and management personnel are lacking in their abilities to lead
