    This company is the worst company to work for.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThey are on online company but don't want any employees to work from home, which is completely doable with their setup.

    ConsThey want to employee the least amount of employees possible and pay them the smallest amount they can. Therefore, employee are overworked and underpaid. They give ridiculous reasons for laying you off when really they just want to cut payroll. The executives are just worried about the bottom line and DO NOT care about their employees at all.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your employees like real human beings that have lives and families to support. Even out the budget so you can pay employees who work extremely hard what they are worth. Quit wasting money on providing the company with a new reusable water bottle every six months. Reward your employees with prizes they actually want like gift cards and make to possible for ALL employees to receive something. Make it so employees can work from home and don't lie to your employees. Be honest with them and they'll be honest with you.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Still a startup

    Associate Producer (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsCoworkers are passionate about the product they create. There is a definite push for constant improvement among all staff and new upper management is taking the company in a better direction.

    ConsQuantity is often valued over quality, simply because of current demands among schools. Due dates can be unrealistic, creating stress and need to work outside of business hours. Current workflow processes need improvement.

    Growing company, increasing employee focus.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Scottsdale, AZ

    ProsRecent focus on career paths, employee wellness. Opportunities for remote work and multiple offices allow some flexibility. Product has become significantly better over the last year or so. Very good in-office technology staff. Custom courses allow for clients and students to get a richer educational experience.

    ConsCommunication is sometimes lacking, although that has gotten better as corporate leadership has stabilized. There seem to be fewer opportunities for remote employees than in-office employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to focus on product quality and employee growth / retention.

    Unsustainable Growth

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThis is a great industry with a lot of potential.

    ConsThe growth that has occurred within the company is causing issues with managing the different departments and is causing everyone to be overworked.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStart a proactive hiring schedule rather than being reactive in your hiring process. Instead of hiring someone when everyone else is ready to quit because they are overworked, hire some people on and make the load more manageable for everyone.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    The CEO vision is exciting but will never be realized

    IT Department (Current Employee) Scottsdale, AZ

    ProsProduct that will change education and help american students become competitive. Co-workers are incredible people.

    ConsIf you are coming to this organization as an IT professional you might want to reconsider. There is no leadership and the department has been a revolving door. Company has been around for a while but is now going to an enterprise level. The CTO is not engaged at any level and is either disingenuous or incappable of managing a team of highly skilled people. The retention rate on any here less than six months has been close to 20%

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou have a highly talented team. Treat them as the professionals they are and figure out what leadership is. Holing up in your office hoping problem sill solve themselves and not taking action or making tough decisions will never deliver the product you have envisioned

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great way to build experience

    Curriculum Developer (Former Employee) Scottsdale, AZ

    ProsAbility to build curriculum and elearning experience.

    ConsTheir business model seems to be hire developers for a course, and then fire/lay off everyone after the course is finished. Very few people have worked there over 2 years.
