I worked at K12 full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

K12 offers a great schooling option for families with an awesome end product having lots of bells and whistles.

Cons

K12 has poorly defined work expectations, no work/life balance offered, way too many hours expected of "non-exempt" employees, and no clear path for career growth. Yearly job reviews were rarely completed and increases/bonuses were all subjective.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Honestly rethink how you treat all employees. Take a good look at how current employees are vetted for promotions. The field has many great candidates.

    Pros

    Flexibility...you can not beat it, especially if you are part time.

    Ability to really connect with students and families and make a positive impact on their educational success

    Cons

    Ridiculously low salary for the work load
    Terrible Executive Staff

    Mis-represented what the growth potential was in the company. There is none.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay themselves less and teachers more.
    Do opinion audits and actually implement changes suggested
    Be honest about everything with new hires

    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
