Great people, clear mission, great partner base and prospects who will get the mission and the underlying tenants of what we provide, provided that you can understand and articulate what we are attempting to do. Extremely transparent, and that can be either good or bad, depending on how you handle the truth. That said, the transparency will make you better and will allow you to attempt things you have not thought to do or were afraid to do in the past. Some of the issues that folks have posted in the negative are the result of being unable to come to grips with where challenge areas lie in their own personal make-up. The comments on GD about "cult" , "forced to post" et al, are not consistent with anything I have encountered in my time with LRN. In fact, I would say just the opposite, this is a group where YOU are empowered to make a decision and lead from day one, whether within your own practice or in the enterprise in general. Some folks will find the amount of autonomy uncomfortable, this is not adult day care, this is a place where we are on a mission to help groups change the way they handle some pretty serious issues. As such we need to be pretty serious and direct while still being respectful and driving a common goal. I think we do a good job of this and regretfully some folks can not get out of their own way. I was asked during my research and discussion prior to joining, "Do you want to be a big person or do you want to do big things?" If you want to do big things and want to be responsible for going for it and making things happen, LRN is for you, if you want to live in the status quo and collect a paycheck this will not work. In short YOU HAVE GOT TO WANT IT!!!!!
This is a very fast paced and entrepreneurial culture. We are direct, we have straight conversations internally and with partners that are different than what most sales people are trained to expect. We will walk away from engagements that are not aligned with our principles. We have a very engaged leadership team that wants to know what you are working on and HOW they can help. We are building and growing and this creates pressure from transition and change, this may be a challenge for some.
Advice to Management
Keep it up- keep looking for best and brightest and keep looking for innovative models to help support our partners and prospects and in time we will see increasing momentum in on boarding and development of partners and new colleagues. Success will be the nectar that brings the new bees!

Helpful (3)No OfferNegative ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at LRN.
The first two interviews went very well because they were with experienced HR/marketing people. The final interview went wrong because the interviewer was too young and inexperienced. Why he was chosen to vet anyone is a mystery. He presented himself as someone who understood the proposal process and yet when asked specific questions reacted badly saying he didn't deal with hypothetical situations (which in reality in the course of this job is far from hypothetical). He took it personally when no such slight was intended. He didn't understand my due diligence process in trying to understand what was going on by asking typical questions. For a firm that believes in a flat structure--the interview process is far from flat. How many hoops does an experienced hire have to jump through before they actually talk to decision makers who understand the position in question? Why use millennials who don't have experience to vet far more experienced candidates who do? How does that support your culture?
