technology company run by a teacher and a lawyer

Director of Engineering (Current Employee)
Brooklyn, NY

ProsAs long as I work here, I feel like I have a chance to improve the state of education and help poor kids overcome the economic achievement gap.

ConsDrive-by management from C-levels. Pretty clueless senior product management. Several internal divisions are in silos, seemingly by intent, leading to reinvention of many wheels. One division is further silo'd into boutique studios that are barred from collaborating. Nepotism. Budgets designed to protect friends at the expense of project success.

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