    I have been working at IXL Learning full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Easy, unchallenging work, good medical benefits, free drinks. Hours are not too crazy. The people are generally well-meaning and nice.

    The company isn't going anywhere right now. They play to the traditional classroom, which is good for profits. You won't have to worry about the company going under (but don't expect the profits to pass onto you, either).

    Cons

    Don't expect a challenge working here. This company sets the bar extremely high for who they hire, and then gives their smart, talented employees boring, menial work to fill the day. The CEO is overly involved in every product, every decision, every everything.

    There are no politics if you fit in. If you don't -- that is, if you're not a family-oriented white or Asian straight or mainstream gay person with 1.7 kids who really likes softball -- then you're likely to find yourself on the outside. Treatment in the workplace, in terms of who gets flexible hours, interesting projects, praise, promotions, and a big yearly raise, is different and seems to run right along these characteristics.

    There is essentially no HR knowledge or staff at this company. Know your rights when you work here, because they don't, and they don't care to learn. Most management has no idea what the word "discrimination" means, nor do they seem to think it matters.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Choose one: listen to the ideas of a group of smart, talented employees, or micromanage a group of mediocre employees. Don't pull the bait and switch on employees who can do way better.

    Build a culture that encourages respect for people of all walks of life.
