    I have been working at Tutor.com full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The IAC building is beautiful and has many amenities (espresso machine, keurig's on every floor, pantries on every floor - stocked with snacks (healthy and not so healthy), 9th floor has an expanded pantry with a fridge full of drinks, yogurts, etc. We have bagel Friday EVERY Friday and Dog Days once a month, as well as many events (Awesome Holiday parties in summer/ winter, National Cookie Day is celebrated, and random pop-ups like gelato in the elevator, and smoothies on the outdoor terrace. The company promotes work life balance (many employees work from home a few days a week) and we have internal events like happy hours, Thanksgiving Pot luck, monthly Birthday/ work anniversary celebrations). The benefits are decent regarding medical and a matching 401K

    Cons

    Some people are paid really well, others not so much - and it doesn't seem to matter how hard you work - you get "stuck" at the level your at. They do have many advancement opportunities that could be utilized more efficiently. There is not a tuition reimbursement policy (which is silly since we are an education company....) but they do promote professional development - you just have to ask for it. Many things have been in flux with recent acquisitions, my experience is they don't want to share a lot unless you are on a need to know basis - which makes sense, but more communication of what is happening would be nice. Everyone is fairly good to work with, but it can be hard to fit in if you aren't in the "right" crowd. Managers are generally supportive

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to get to know more of the employees - not just the higher level ones. We all work hard, it would be nice to have some acknowledgement your work is appreciated. The business cannot run efficiently without the help of our lowest paid employees - a simple Thank you would suffice in most cases. Compensate people for doing their "job" and extending outside of those boundaries - many hands make light work. Don't penalize those unless you have reason too. I feel like many are surprised because they thought they were doing well, come to find out they weren't doing something according to how someone thinks it should be done - but nobody said anything otherwise that it needed to be worked on. We are all human and most of us want the best for ourselves and families as well as our extended work family. Be proud of what WE have built - all of us!

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Tutor.com.

    Interview Details

    Long and drawn out online application process. It can take up to a month for an applicant to get through with all of it, and at least that long for them to decide. Then there are the 2 gigantic manuals they expect you to basically memorize prior to practicing in their virtual classroom. They tell you they pay on the 4th of every month, but that is only if it suits them to pay on that day. The fine print states they pay anywhere from the 4th through the 8th of every month. And, of course, they do not mention this up front.

    Interview Questions
    • There were no questions because there was no interview. There was only a huge amount of screening via their website application. I don't even remember all the things I was asked.   Answer Question
