Great company focused on real outcomes

Director (Current Employee) Landover, MD

ProsAmazing company culture, we are growing but there is a concerted effort to maintain some level of a start up environment. Work had, play hard (cliche but actually true) A lot of opportunity if the skill set is there, team player, and the timing is right. NIce to be a part of a company that is making a real impact in an industry that ultimately matters to everyone...education.

ConsLike most companies, there are a lot of office politics. That being said I think most business practices are improving. Some departments are better than other. Not a lot of diversity at the SVP to C-Level management (women and minorities). Terrible paid time off benefits, and when you do take vacation you get a hard time from management.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe less reactive. If something is working/not working, don't always immediately push the breaks or gas. When this happens so frequently you lose the trust of your employees who have to constantly pivot thier priorities and time....ultimately resulting in employees not knowing what is really important.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    I worked at 2U full-time for more than a year


    Pros: I worked in the MBA@UNC program for a year. When I worked there we had catered lunches, and the parties/office events were a ton of… Cons: Promotions, leads, and recognition tended to be based on political favoritism within the organization.
