Currently working as a software engineer in NYC at a big tech company. Got an offer at Disney Streaming Services which I’m super excited about. I was wondering if anyone can speak to the work/life balance, culture, and general experience working there. Thanks :)
Does anyone work in a work culture where your boss views herself as a mother, her employees as children and then refers to your colleagues as “sisters” and “brothers” and hints that everyone can call her “Mama Bear”. Please share thoughts on this.

My client’s site got hacked yesterday. I didn’t see any actual signs of impending attack. But knowing how little we do for cyber security when building a site, I knew we must have been vulnerable in some way. I’ve tried pushing for more cybersecurity measures in the last year, but being a Jr, I don’t know a lot about it. My manager had brushed it off as something that would be nice to look into if [insert excuses not to here]. Can’t push it off any longer. I’m afraid heads are gonna roll.Advice?

I am a speech therapist (Speech Language Pathologist) going into my third year in a public school. I want to see if there are any other school SLPs in (or around) the same place in their career who are willing to share their salary for the 22-23 school year! Mine will be $62,500
Our district is so lax on the students this year. With tech issues and distance learning days, we’ve gone from accommodating to enabling real quick. No penalties for late work, taking excuses for attendance, lower academic and behavioral standards... We were beginning to make so much progress on transforming our school culture, but this year is erasing that and then some. Is anyone else concerned about how to raise the expectations and students’ self-discipline back to pre-enabling levels?
First week of school resource! Help your students transition back after remote and hybrid learning!
Check out my interview with the teachers union or email me for more information 💕#education
From what I read the country has an epidemic that is growing at an enormously fast pace! It seems administration all around the country thinks they can go ahead and behave as if nobody else matters in a school district! Their hypocrisy is an embarrassment and their self-management BS needs to stop! The unions aren't doing anything about it mine believe my administration before me even! We're greater in number and we need to stop the bullying and harassment directed at teachers and students!
Anyone have success creating a positive school culture without much support from the administration?
I work in the Title IX area, and would love to hear from anyone who is working with students dealing with sexual or other kind of harassment between students, and how to improve that climate.
Anyone work at a school who that puts on plays or uses video of the stunt body or staff acting out what the school values are?
The hostility on my team is rough. We have a yeller. I walked by her room the other day. She was screaming across the room at a student, "you have to be kind to get kindness." Seriously, those were her words in a loud, berating, angry tone. Our admin has asked that we not report these. We are to talk to the teacher. She has yelled at me and other adults. Admin has to know she treats the kids this way too. One teacher has to work with her door closed to not hear the yelling all day.
Maybe it's just me, but I feel like my building, and all of its stakeholders, are not on the same page, and it has created a chaotic school culture. What can I do to help unite an entire school?
If you’re worried about the classroom climate help with this resource. Helps kids transition back with empathy and equity for remote learners!
