A change in senior management last year moved the company backward not forward

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Learning Tree full-time for more than 10 years

ProsFriendly and challenging work environment with good compensation and employee benefits. Good opportunities for growth and advancement. Employees committed to creating a quality product and staying on the leading edge of technology.

ConsIt was a great place to work until the change of senior management last year. Their lack of communication, planning, and the removal of some employee benefits has negatively affected employee morale.

Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your employees as professionals and a valuable asset. Need to improve on communication with employees.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

The office lacked energy.

Editor/Proofreader (Former Employee)
El Segundo, CA

I worked at Learning Tree as a contractor for less than a year

ProsMy contract lasted only for a few months, so I wasn't that concerned about how they treat employees. Great snacks offered in the lunch room!

ConsManagement was not interested in hearing ideas on improving the product. I understand I was a mere freelancer, but sometimes an outsider can see things clearer than the regular employees who just keep at it because "that's the way we've always done it." The office was so quiet that it felt uncomfortable and dull.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe open to new ideas.

Learning Tree Sales Dept

Account Manager (Former Employee)
Reston, VA

I worked at Learning Tree

ProsCompetitive base pay, good commission structure that even comes with a ramp up guarantee your first 3 months there. Good benefits, education reimbursement, health club reimbursement, good incentive programs / sales contests. Management is flexible with time off and the company provides a decent amount of paid time off. Everyone is held to the same effort metrics.

ConsVery micro-managed and highly monitored. Sales territories are a not equal. A majority of Learning Tree's business is done in the greater DC and New York area so representatives that have territories in those areas have a sizable advantage. There's almost unfair pressue put on you to have exemplary sales numbers when you're covering a territory region where Learning Tree doesn't hold the same strong reptutation they have in their key business regions (Washington D.C. / New York)

Advice to Senior ManagementThe company runs multiple online surveys to guage employee needs yet it seemed like nothing was ever addressed. If you're not open to an employee's suggestion don't agree with them to placate their inquiry or suggestion. As another review mentioned, they could be more tactful with employees being let go as well.

They have a lot of benefits for employees, but they're a very bureaucratic organization, and they're tanking financially

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Learning Tree full-time

ProsGood benefits, good salary, good work/life balance

ConsVery bureaucratic, too much focus on outdated modes of marketing, new management appears not to care about employees

Advice to Senior ManagementCommunicate more with lower level employees

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Marketing still in the 80's

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Learning Tree

Prosgenerous competitive salary
good benefits/health insurance, 401K match, time off
free Learning Tree courses and education support
nice office facilities

ConsThe marketing department is held back by upper management involved in any and all decisions. Little progress is made in any area because upper management cannot let the professionals they hired do their jobs.

Advice to Senior ManagementManagement should let everyone do the jobs they were hired for and stop micro-managing their employees. And if you are going to close an office or cutback staff do it in a professional manner.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
