I worked at Compass Knowledge

Pros

Some of the best people to work with, good benefits and a clean new office environment. Regular M-F office hours for almost all positions.

Cons

Top management has issues with delegating tasks and authority. Too many chiefs all trying to run the departments, so employees end up dealing with managers conflicting directions and priorities. Promotional opportunities are limited and very discriminatory. Turnover rate is high no matter what department you're in. Lack of training on behalf of the company is poor and the entire company is a giant rumor mill constantly turning.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to your employees and become part of the team instead of acting like an "untouchable executive." CKG employees need executive leaders to work with them not just "above" them.

    Pros

    Reduced costs to enter in degree programs the company offers, the staff that are "in the trenches" are really great people.

    Cons

    Senior management responds at a very superficial level to employee concerns, if at all. Very little communication is provided to employees. Director-level managers feel more like puppets than actual supervisors, their ability to represent their direct reports feels undermined by senior management. Too much power given to business unit leads, upsets the balance between the business units and functional team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rebalance the point of power in the company and look at creating a healthier work environment. Too much leniency is afforded the business unit leads and it consistently comes at the cost of dissatisfied employees.

    I have been working at Compass Knowledge as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    If you have the skills, this does not require heavy lifting. On occasion, it's informative and interesting.

    Cons

    The nature of the work is not consistant. It ebbs and flows with the demands of the various schools posting online courses. And, as a contractor, I have no real communication with the course developers. I have lots to offer by way of years of editorial experience, but I get the sense there is little desire to really tackle the details.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As a full-time, in-house QA specialist, I could form relationships with the developers and communicate the need to be exact in the details. Applying Associated Press style to the courses, rather than the un-observed academic styles would create a far more user-friendly course environment.
