"LAUSD is a government company so coming from Yahoo and Disney , it took some time to adjust. They work slow... I work fast. It was hard but I was able to succeed by showing value and then getting my own team, which I molded to my liking. This is not my ideal company but yet, I've been there longer than any other, so the plus side is they are a big company with a lot of challenges... and I love challenges :)"
"After 22 years of teaching I want a career change"
"I’ve been working for LAUSD since January 2019 as a teacher for secondary schools. LAUSD faces challenges in funding and students’ efforts. Despite this, the school overwhelmingly do everything possible to support student achievement and success. I would recommend working at LAUSD for anyone who wants to see students succeed as long as he or she knows the majority of students may not want to succeed themselves."
"I have enjoyed the experience with my company."
"Great workplace and benefits."
"my company is good, we create dashboards to help children and find out where kids are lagging and helps to improve their performances."
"LAUSD is an education management organization. It is the second largest public school district after New York. As lausd.net points out: Second largest in the nation, the Los Angeles Unified School District enrolls more than 600,000 students in kindergarten through 12th grade. The District covers 710 square miles, and includes Los Angeles, as well as all or parts of 31 smaller municipalities, plus several unincorporated sections of Los Angeles County."
"Good place to learn; but lacks overall direction."
"good place to work.. good lifestyle of your workplace environment"
"As a substitute teacher in LAUSD, many of the questions listed below do not apply. I did not check in with a supervisor and worked more in an independent contractor role. The overall compensation for my work was not enough. The workplace environment and lifestyle were many times challenging. As a substitute teacher, you do not have coworkers."
"I've worked with LAUSD for 7 years now. I have found that this company is based on ethical value as well as being able to work with a team. You have to have a lot a patience when it comes to dealing with young children and I believe that this job gave me those skills. I was able to learn about how to learn things quickly and the importance of staying open to new learning. I also learned that the team is the reason why a school will succeed and the best part of the school is the students which you are teaching."
"This is not a progressive company. Employees join this company with the intent of spending a lifetime there. There is very little incentive to be productive and the intimidation rituals are brutal. I would not recommend it."
"A typical state bureaucracy staffed by mostly inept personnel who have been there forever. Due to public perceptions, most employees are afraid to act decisively in their day to day work. Most are afraid they might get into trouble for speaking the truth."
"I've worked at LAUSD/LA's BEST now since 2010 and have always found it to be a great organization to be a part of. The workplace culture is friendly and warm, like family."
"I had a great deal of support and training for this position. The only regret I truly had was that it ended in summer, and the payroll was only once a month."
