Pros

The product is amazing! Unfortunately, the current leadership had nothing to do with it so they don't understand how to think about product creation.

Cons

The CEO is simply ill-suited to run a company.

Management doesn't have a plan -- they have randomizing ideas that cause huge shifts without data to support them.

EVERYONE I know there is looking for another job. So there is no lasting loyalty or long-term views.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Students and shareholders are being poorly served by naked ambitions.So, my advice is to the Board: please remove the leadership and look at what worked in the past.

    Pros

    DreamBox has one of the best math products around! The potential is huge.
    Most co-workers are great to work with and everyone works hard.
    Medical benefits are wonderful - but costly to add spouse.

    Cons

    Very high stress environment with little or no support from senior management. Turnover has been high (especially in HR) and many employees are looking for other jobs. Raises and promotions, (if and when you can get one) are given grudgingly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the treating employees like second class citizens. You've got a phenomenal product that employees believe in. Time to believe in your employees.

    Pros

    The location of DreamBox is great, parking is provided without cost to employee, excellent product with a thoughtful approach to children.

    Cons

    The largest "con" of working for DreamBox is the management. CEO and HR are clueless! The company is slow in making decisions with constant changes to original plan. A lot of time is wasted chasing the wrong idea and listening to the "vision/direction" from upper management. It's a mess!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove the leader. She isn't a leader, isn't a visionary or a mentor on how to conduct an effective company. She treats employees as sub-par. Employees are actively looking for new jobs and very dissatisfied with working for DreamBox. Look for turn-over!
