Portland Public Schools Reviews
What is it like working at Portland Public Schools?
"Refreshing to work in public employment. Uplifting to see focus on students as a product rather than the bottom line."
Software Engineer in Portland:
Pros: Everyone REALLY is focused on providing value and a better environment for the students. This is so different from corporate jobs as very few people here focus on career so much as the value they can bring to students.
Cons: Politics muddies effective work for long term planning. Every new voted in/appointed group has a different vision and this changes direction every few years. Decisions sometimes are based on political position rather than understanding of the possible role of IT. There is a lot of old thinking that IT is a cost of business rather than an essential facilitator is saving money.
