I worked at Building Educated Leaders for Life full-time (less than an year)

Pros

The company structure is well organized. Contact with recruiters is systematic and staff is responsive. They also screened their hires well.

Cons

The company has a great model, but the program was a little unorganized. The program manager was responsible for way too many employees and was not available to really help any of us due to work overload. Although the program itself was well organized, the support wasn't there, which made things hectic

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There needs to be an appropriate number of program managers for smaller groups of staff.

    I worked at Building Educated Leaders for Life

    Pros

    The perception of the mission

    Cons

    The Cons far outweigh the Pro's which is unfortunate. I will repeat what others have said- Leadership is ineffective with little to no business acumen and outdated experience. The CEO is asleep at the wheel and has no clue what is going on. Turnover is high and there is no interest in retaining top performers, very old fashion way of thinking with old fashion way of leading/ managing. A organization of silos with no collaboration. The fact that the VP of HR only responded to one negative comment should tell the story.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value the people that work for you, you are not the smartest people in the room and could learn a little from your teams. roll your sleeves up and get dirty. It isn't all about your bonus..
