    Great Company, they take care of you and push work/life/balance

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsReally an amazing place to work. I really believe that the company is a good place. It has great benefits which include educational. They work with you to ensure you are not overly stressed but efficient in your job.

    ConsI don't know that I've seen many cons other than training. It is difficult to get training approved for IT certifications unless it is videos or books.

    Advice to Senior ManagementChange the core values of the company back to what they were in 2013 and don't touch them, they are the foundation of the company.

    Great place to grow and learn

    Marketing Manager (Current Employee)
    Arlington, VA

    ProsUniquely driven by both market AND mission, Rosetta Stone has enabled me to grow as a business person while preserving the passion for global education that brought me here in the first place. Especially with the company's 2013 acquisition spree, opportunities to develop new skills are currently expanding faster than we've seen in a long time.

    ConsWe have employee discounts, but they are limited to only a few per year.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to practice what you preach - we love hearing about our leaders' personal stories of language learning success.

    Great company to work for

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsI work for the company for almost 4 years. It feels so fulfilling to work for the company which has a product you really believe in! And I am just glad that Rosetta (with my little help) can unite so many people throughout the world by language learning. Great benefits, a lot of paid vacation time.

    Consnot enough communication between departments of RS

    Advice to Senior ManagementGreat communication with direct management, but almost no communication with senior management.

    This is a forward-thinking company, teeming with opportunity.

    Recruiting Professional (Current Employee)
    Arlington, VA

    ProsThere's a couple big draws working for Rosetta Stone. For starters, from a compensation standpoint, benefits packages are robust. As far as day-to-day, looking around the company, there's a lot of job satisfaction from fellow employees. Looking up the ladder, there's clearly diversity built into the hiring practices and there seems to be a lot of opportunity for growth. Most importantly, the company's vision is in sync across the board and the future here looks bright.

    ConsIt's a big company at about 1,200 expanding across the U.S. and worldwide. Depending on personal taste, that can be tough.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on the strong, in-house talent and continue to develop internally. We have a strong roster.

    Great place to work!

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat work environment. People are very friendly and full of energy. There is a very nice cafeteria in the building.
