What are the pros and cons of working in Education?

Bridget Community Manager Aug 17, 2020

Hi everyone! 

I was recently asked by a student from my alma mater about the pros and cons of working in tech. I thought it was a really excellent question - we often advertise the highlights of our industry to young people who are interested, but rarely share the downsides! 

So, I'd love to hear from you - what are some of the pros AND cons of working in Education that you would share with anyone who is considering it for their own career? Or, think of it this way: What do you wish you knew when you started your career path that you know now? 

Can't wait to hear your answers :). Happy Monday!

Pro: You really feel like you are making a difference in peoples lives.

Con: You usually get paid less.

I'm not involved in the educational process, but my mom is a math teacher, so let me comment on this post.

- it's an important and necessary profession
- constant gaining invaluable experience from working with children
- self-improvement and self-development
- participation in various activities
- good pension

- frequent tiredness
- lots of paperwork
- ungrateful children and their parents
