Pros

The company exists to help those with trouble learning overcome those issues and those who just want to get better improve using researched and verified programs for decomposition and comprehension. Very professional and pleasant work environment.

Cons

Not a whole lot to complain about. I left the company because I am in the information technology field and just wanted to take a different path than the one they decided to take. That being said I think they made the right move for the company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Maybe just the typical try and spend more time communicating with your team members and customer as they are your best resource for ideas for improvement.

    Nice program but far too much focus on sales.

    Pros

    The students make the job worthwhile and meaningful. They are students of all ages who are truly in need of help and academic support. The families are very hopeful and appreciate the clinicians. The employees in the learning center support each other and are very flexible.

    Cons

    The cost of services is prohibitive for many families. Far too much focus on "show" and sales. The company puts as much value on how things look as they do on the instruction they provide for the students. Quite a bit of smoke and mirrors. The same services can be acquired elsewhere for far less out of pocket cost. Management puts a lot of sales pressure on their staff so that once a family begins instruction, they try to keep them forever in some capacity. They talk a good game about being a family company, but don't really seem to mean it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce the expenditure on Pottery Barn and Ikea furniture. Pay your clinicians more - they are the people making a difference for the students! Staff made only $13.50/hour when my families paid over $100/hour. Way too much senior management and the top level is all family. Nepotism is rampant.

    Pros

    - Opportunity to work with diverse populations of people and on interesting projects.
    - Big company with good health benefits.
    - Great coworkers.
    - Learning environment.

    Cons

    - High school politics, if you don't know the in-crowd you can't play the game.
    - No formal management training.
    - Shady compensation policy, esp in the Fall/Winter months.
    - Overt favoritism of Learning Center department employees (income stream).
    - Too much expected from employees for too little reward

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Create financial incentives that support the Corporate departments, not just the Learning Centers... you couldn't do what you do without their backstage support.
