Used to be like a family, now it's more like just another heartless corporation.

Pros

Working with mostly great people and feeling like part of a family. Most of the people working at Noble really care about the goal of the network and helping kids. Competitive pay and decent benefits.

Cons

The network expanded to quickly, opening too many schools at once. This not only caused a number of growing pains, but also turned it into a place with more of a "corporate" atmosphere than what it was 5 years ago. Some of the senior management cares less about their employees and the Noble vision than their own careers.

Advice to Management

It's good to be have goals for helping the kids of Chicago, but growing too fast and opening too many schools only causes problems.

  1. They take care of all the basic needs and structure so that teachers can focus on actually teaching.

    Pros

    Great opportunity to teach in a high-need area without entirely sacrificing your sanity. Though the discipline system is strict, the administration supports it 100%, so teachers are well supported.

    Cons

    Though the bonus structure is pretty clear, what's not at all clear is how raises work. The emphasis on ACT scores sometimes comes at the detriment of everything else.

  2. Rewarding but little time for home/family. Lots of hours put in

    Pros

    The families and students are definitely hard working and it is always great seeing the kids succeed with such great opportunities that are given to them.

    Cons

    Always a lot of work and you are expected to put in whatever hours are needed. Work/life balance is very difficult. Unless you are a teacher, profesional growth isnt really encouraged.
