    I have been working at K12 full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    K12 has lots of areas for employees growth and professional development. Additionally, there are so many different divisions within K12, that the opportunities are countless.

    Cons

    K12 has experienced a significant number of changes in the past couple of years. They are not necessarily bad changes, but there have been many key executive changes. Change is never easy.

    Current Employee - Site Director for Learning Center in Phoenix, AZ
    Current Employee - Site Director for Learning Center in Phoenix, AZ

    I have been working at K12 full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I am a Site Director and have been here a year. They will create a new position if you convince them that it is worth while. If you have a positive attitude about k12, they will love you and listen to you.

    Cons

    They are working on this by asking employees, but perhaps a bit more training with the tech stuff would be in order.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to listen to the people who work here who truly care about this school.

    I have been working at K12 full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work hours, creative co-workers, positive attitudes, and the knowledge that you're creating a product that has real value.

    Cons

    Some political aspects to advancement (it's occasionally who you know and how friendly you are with those folks that determines your success vs. quality of work). Most of the company directors hold their positions simply due to time in service vs. actual management/leadership skills or talent.
