    I worked at Education Elements full-time

    Pros

    I was lucky to work with many friendly coworkers in an environment where everyone is encouraged to contribute. Like many startups, all employees have the opportunity to try out different roles and "wear multiple hats."

    Cons

    I was not challenged by Education Elements. My skills flattened or regressed during my time here.

    There is no sense of management urgency regarding planning or scheduling product improvements. There are frequent, chaotic fire-drills after the product has broken down. This results in 60-90 hour weeks becoming usual as all teams are running triage to catch up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good product idea, but poor execution. If management focused on fixing the current product before building new features the company would see more growth. There are no people with education or SaaS experience on the board, executive staff, or director level positions. Hiring people with these backgrounds is critical for a SaaS product in the education space.
