    Pros

    Great partners to work with, and networking abilities. The cohort model is conducive to learning from one another in a diverse environment

    Cons

    The cohort topics can be a little generic. Requires a lot of effort on the part of the alumnae to stay involved.

    Pros

    National company
    Very young, driven employees
    Great cause, easy to get motivated
    The company is expanding very quickly so there is plenty of mobility

    Cons

    lack of solid structure in the company
    still relatively small groups in many of the offices.
    company is bigger than they know how to handle
    everyone in the company is needed to keep up with scale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Either hire more aggresively to keep up with the huge applicant pools, or consider downsizing the size of programs.

    I have been working at Education Pioneers

    Pros

    Smart coworkers who are passionate about key issues
    Virtual work environment
    Impact of program is positive and impactful

    Cons

    Growing pains - employee/program rapid growth
    Not cultivating talent within - lack of promotion/professional development options
    No bonus structure
    Human Resource processes are poor

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cultivate leaders from within. Acknowledge those who are doing a great job earlier on. Provide incentives and professional development opportunities. Top level leadership needs work on roles and responsibilities.

    I worked at Education Pioneers

    Pros

    Great people. Very collaborative: if you need help or ideas, just ask for it

    Rewarding to introduce people from a business background to lesser known opportunities in K-12 education. Teachers know EP as a path into non-classroom positions in education.

    EP is very well known in the education sector. Pride with being affiliated with them!

    Cons

    Very successful first decade. Figuring out EP's place in the K-12 education sector moving forward is creating a lot of uncertainty.

    Staff turnover at the lower and mid-levels is concerning and creates a lot of work for everyone.

    Smart, hard-working, and friendly staff.

    Keep up the good work.
