    I worked at Revolution Prep full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Intelligent and articulate people. From the top down the people are wonderful to work with. The benefits were good when I worked there. There is opportunity to advance for most positions.

    Cons

    Frequently, I was put into a position to decide if I should cancel personal plans or give the impression that I just don't care about my job due to a sudden change in direction or poor planning at a very senior level. The feeling of nepotism, several promotions appear to have been based on personal relationships rather than merit. That said, I was never privy to actual reasons for any promotions. That is why I wrote, "The feeling of nepotism."

    Advice to Management

    Trust your professionals. You hired them for a reason. Make your employees feel appreciated when they go above and beyond. Most importantly, realize that most employees don't have their lives vested in the company. They have lives outside the company and need to live them. Let them, they will be more productive and happier. To prospective employees: In retrospect of my nearly 6 years working there, you can do far worse than working at Revolution Prep.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Revolution Prep.

    Interview

    Simple--just talk about having a passion for helping students learn (even if you don't have one, the company doesn't really care; what matters is being able to sell your impressive college degree to prospective clients).
