NSW Department of Education Employee Review

Poor culture and CEO

The hardest part is the focus by the CEO on supporting people because they are liked rather than capable. The culture has deteriorated significantly over the past year.

Same location

Workplace amenities ergonomically friendly

The building was recently refitted and desks are ergonomically friendly. This is important because majority of the employees are older than in other organisations.

The place to be if you are a teacher.

Schools can be very different. Overwhelmingly the staff are friendly and collaboration is the order of the day. There is a tendency to lose this collaboration as you move into executive positions but again this is a culture that comes down from the top. If the Principal is collaborative, the school is pleasant. As Principals change so does the culture of the workplace. It's a lottery, some times you win.

Pros

Collegiate atmosphere, make lifelong friends. Watch students mature and become adults.

Cons

High degree of administration and reporting which actually detracts from teaching.

Live to work not work to live

The job becomes your life and your family suffers. Your relationship is seriously affected especially in a real small town. Good for single person with no life.

Cons

Long hours
