    I have been working at The Teaching Company full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The ethos of lifelong learning extends to employees throughout the organization, from production to marketing to the customer care associates working the phones. There are a lot of smart people working here!

    Cons

    For the first 20 years of the company's existence, the business was extremely simple. There was only one marketing channel and the management philosophy was very much about following a predetermined formula. Now the world of media has become much more complex, and the business has become much more complex, so lots of older employees aren't used to the rapid change and uncertainty that this creates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep communicating the "why" of your actions, as well as the successes and the failures.

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at The Teaching Company.

    Interview Details

    Very long day, multiple interviewers, no lunch, no breaks; interviewed in groups and individually and pairs across multiple sections. everyone was nice, thoughtful, smart. it was clear that everyone was passionate about their work; passion for the product is one of the strengths of the workers (not the executive team, however)
