Pros

Great, friendly, open culture, with passionate people who want to be thoughtfully involved in shaping how education responds to the digital age. A good work-life balance is consistently supported and reinforced. I’ve really enjoyed my work and interacting with coworkers to make it happen. Given the domain and the company’s rapid growth, there is a lot of opportunity to advance and take ownership of interesting projects.

Cons

Given Knewton’s growth (in company size and in number of partnerships), the company is also changing quickly. While the senior management’s vision for the company is frequently and very openly discussed, it’s still hard to anticipate how Knewton will look in one or two years.

    Pros

    The culture is extremely supportive and the business goals create challenges that will help you grow in your career. But not only is Knewton a great place for you! It is also improving education for students around the globe. The people who work at Knewton are passionate about this mission.

    Cons

    Growth is probably Knewton's biggest challenge. As Knewton grows it is constantly looking to improve practices and procedures. These changes can be painful at times. There are also members of the organization that have been around for a long time that are resistant to the changes.


  2. Change the world with some of the smartest people in the industry

    Pros

    * Brilliant people * Work on one of the most important problems in the world: improving education * Encouraged to change anything you don't like through an RFC process * Work hard culture without destroying your life * Quarterly hack day! * Weekly open discussions with upper management, usually with CEO * Great open work space * Free dinner & metro cards (basic tech startup stuff)

    Cons

    Communication across the company could be better, although it is improving, and goes with the territory with a rapidly growing company. It's also not always clear what is necessary in order to advance at the company.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to grow aggressively.
