I worked at Excelligence Learning full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

There are a lot of things to like about this company - many employees seem genuinely to like the products and each other. The culture includes fun events, decorating cubes for birthdays, etc. The products are actually helpful and working for educators and kids is a feel-good thing to do.

Cons

The salaries tend to be far below average for comparable jobs elsewhere, maybe because it is education, for sure because the company is based in Monterey and doesn't need to compete with Silicon Valley for talent. If they paid more, they'd better retain their talent.

Also, the call center employees, corporate employees and sales are all treated differently, with three levels of socio-economic treatment. It can make the culture feel weird.

    Pros

    Established company with 25 years of experience.
    Loved by customers for its great product selection and lowest prices with true 110% lowest price guarantee.

    Cons

    By serving schools and early childhood eduction establishments business of Excelligence has been negatively impacted in past years by hard recession and subsequent state and federal fund cuts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership position should be updated since Ron Elliott sold the company in 2011. Kelly Crampton is the new CEO since 2010 and he was successful in steering the company out of recessionary environment.
