Tough place to work

Product Manager (Current Employee) San Francisco, CA

ProsHave some really bright individual contributors who are trying to do the right things to open access to education.

ConsStrategy and leadership are ever changing which makes for a difficult environment when playing in an area of the economy that is undergoing such radical shifts. Accountability is an issue and management seems to be willing to make lots of bets but there doesn't appear to be a real drive for excellence. Hard to see this business returning to its glory years unless there are radical and immediate changes at the top and in strategy.

Advice to Senior ManagementChoose a strategy, select leaders who are capable of executing on that strategy, and hold leaders accountable. Too many dreams and not enough reality. Figure out your value prop, resource it with the best and brightest, and cut all the rest.

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