Great ideas, great people, not great follow-through

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Denver, CO

ProsInnovative, inspired, hard-working people who want the best for students. Feels like senior leadership is trying to be innovative and t do what's best for kids, but gets muddled in the delivery.

ConsRed tape and lack of communication get very frustrating which leads to conspiracy theories at the schools. Feels like 900 Grant Street is inaccessible and doesn't care about employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementMake decisions and stick to them. Be a bit more transparent with employees.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
