    Pros

    I really enjoy working with competent, intelligent people. There are many great opportunities for individual development and growth. The company also offers good benefits and has nice social events.

    Cons

    The office can be rather quiet, which can discourage interaction among employees. The reasons why things are done in particular ways can be unclear and there seems to be resistance to changes/suggestions.

    Pros

    The company is going through a period of rapid expansion and with that come new opportunities and challenges - you can definitely make an impact at this point. That's exciting!

    The company is actively investing in it's employees through newly remodeled floor plans and programs designed to increase efficiency across the board. It's refreshing to see a company actively pushing for the benefit of it's employees.

    The company hosts game nights, trivia outings, happy hours, sports teams and other socials that allow employees to find their niche and connect with people from other departments. Strong relationships can happen quickly.

    There is pretty universal excitement amongst employees about the products that we're creating. The core vision is still heavily focused on education and making better platforms for learning. Money is important, but it's really more of an offshoot of building solid products that meet a need.

    Compensation is very competitive for the area.

    Cons

    The company has gone through a lot of growth in the last couple of years. IXL still needs some time to build out stronger infrastructure for continued growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep reaching out to employees for feedback. Fostering an environment wherein ground up communication is valued will have immeasurable returns.
