    Pros

    Although the company is stilled known as Certiport, it was acquired by Pearson Vue. Pearson takes good care of its employees. Many employees of Pearson will stick around for many years. Certiport has been a positive place to work at. Everyone is really nice and understanding.

    Cons

    Some of the leadership decisions are questionable, but it can't be too far off from most average companies.

    Pros

    Great boss
    Rewarding industry
    Feel like we are offering a product that makes a difference

    Cons

    Pearson owns us and it is a large company with more red tape than we are used too. We are the middle man between the client and the end user.

    Advice to Management

    Expand product offerings. Update technology and automation .


  3. Good company with decent benefits, but culture, morale and political issues.

    Pros

    Great leadership, great products and a great place to work. Since the arrival on the new CEO in 2009 Certiport has developed a very positive atmosphere. He has brought in a lot of new people and done a great job of turning the company around. He came in, set a vision and executed it well. The products are great to sell and they make a difference to the people who use them.

    Cons

    Certiport recently sold to a bigger company and they've promised to run it independently. Only time will tell whether the new company can continue to get the best out its people

    Advice to Management

    I've had a chance to do a couple of jobs in my few years here and its good to see people being given a chance to develop and promoted from within

    Pros

    It's a positive work environment with good people. They are moving in the right direction from a technology viewpoint by updating their processes. They offer flexible work schedules and locations.

    Cons

    They are using older technologies and tools. Like many companies, they are often short on human resources.

    Advice to Management

    Kirby seems to be moving the technology department in the right direction.

    Pros

    Certiport has one of the best benefits packages for a company of its size. Employees pay around $50 per paycheck for a family for medical, dental and vision coverage. They also have a 5% matching for their 401K plan.

    Cons

    Certiport is one of the most political companies I have worked for. Frequently work is completed based on who you talk to or if you can get the CEO to support your project. It also doesn't help that Certiport has a CIO and CTO for a company of 150 employees and the two individuals rarely agree with each other. Also, nobody is unified around a central vision for growth and success.

    Advice to Management

    Certiport management needs to come together around a common goal and project that goal to the company. Don't be afraid to communicate weaknesses as well as strengths.

    one the company is aquired by Pearson, seems there is no leadership and no clear vision where the company is going. Only time will show...

    Pros

    Benefits were very good, Flexible schedule, information available to most people in the company.

    Cons

    Sales driven organization who only cares about the bottom line and not the employees or improving the work environment. The executives were only looking to sale the company which they did now where do we go from here?

    Advice to Management

    Stop focusing on the short term and try to build the company right. Instead of looking out for yourselves make all the employees feel important and help everyone grow.

    Pros

    Great potential, great customers and clients. Overall good people who work there. It's a business that really makes a difference in people's lives.

    Cons

    CEO is disconnected from the realities of issues. Doesn't seem to ever create a cohesive strategy and vision for the company. Criticizes unnecessarily. Seems uncomfortable in the role. Seems to only think about one thing, himself. Customers don't want him back after a visit. Needs to focus on updating the technology and less about driving exotic cars. He' seems smart and friendly but some interaction seems to seek opportunities for public humiliation of individuals over very minor issues just to show power. One has to question if he does it for lack of self confidence?

    One change and this is a great place to work. Although I don't work closely with him, his reputation is well known in the company. One look at his office vs. everyone else's working space and you can see who he cares about most.

    Advice to Management

    Treat all employees with respect. PTO is too little. Like the small activities we do but need to change the oppressive culture. Too many good people leave fed up with the pettiness and politics.
