    I have been working at Eduventures full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Energetic and bustling downtown location. Free cereal if you're in to that sort of thing. Good operational on-boarding process.

    Cons

    Autocratic rule. Because Eduventures is tiny, the President & CEO is regularly visible to the team in the form of regular town hall meetings. However, what's implied in these communications is that the former leadership team did not know what it was doing -- and by association, neither did the employees. The 'I'm here to save you from yourselves' refrain comes off as insulting and arrogant. At the same time the business has steadily declined over the past two years in the form of analyst attrition, client attrition, and lost revenue. Worth noting that this is a company that plays in the challenging research and advisory space, and is up against large, well-heeled competitors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make the team believe they have worthwhile ideas to help Eduventures succeed. Admitting you don't have all the answers is not a sign of weakness. In fact the opposite is true. Chesty academic rhetoric does not play well in a business setting. Win the hearts of the team, and you'll gain much needed loyalty (not just from the Forrester people).
