I have been working at 2U

Pros

This company offers employees very unique opportunities to grow and prosper. I'm doing things with this company that I never thought I would, but always hopped for. You truly do get out what you put in.

Cons

The only challenge in working at 2U is the geographical area. A sub-zero winter in not attractive to me, but the company and co-workers make that small sacrifice well worth it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The better your team does - the better you do. Continue to encourage everyone's professional growth.

    Make sure the right people are put in leadership positions so that others can succeed, not just because they have "good numbers"

    I have been working at 2U as a contractor for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Everyone on staff is pleasant enough to work with and seem to understand why freelancers would get frustrated with them. I don't work in the office so I can't speak for that environment.

    Cons

    As a freelance worker, I find it hard to get an idea of what they want. Their communication is all over the place. They will overload you with work, then when you drop other commitments to give them more time, the work dries up. Very frustrating. Very little positive feedback: you hear nothing unless you've done something wrong.
