    Pros

    The staff members are friendly and the location for Commuting is in a good location

    Cons

    The company is disorganised and does not implement suggestions given by staff. Directors take credit for ideas the management and staff share with them

    Advice to Management

    Directors and up need to be realistic about staffing and quit forcing managers and supervisors to work 75 hous + per week....even during off season.

    I have been working at K12 full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Smart people abound. Fascinating business model. Great opportunities for professional growth.

    Cons

    Patchwork of a thousand technologies that don't work well together. Lack of accountability for some. Work/life balance can be wildly unbalanced depending on department/position.

    Advice to Management

    Act like the big company you are.
