I worked at PresenceLearning full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Amazing service that many children need. Good feedback system for the SLPs allowing them to manage their time and work remotely.

Cons

Typical startup with founders who only care about their vision. If you are not from Stanford, don't apply. They are heavily biased. No one except a chosen few are allowed to have input or authority, even over their own departments.

Advice to Management

Step aside, take Board of Director roles and let experienced executives take your vision to market. Or, sell to a large competitor and incubate another idea.

    I have been working at PresenceLearning full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I appreciate working with students one-on-one or in groups of two. I love being able to maintain the attention of my students well with the use of head-sets, amplified volume, computer screen, and a variety of engaging and didactic activities to improve their speech and language skills. On a personal bases, I love being able to live outside the country while providing services to schools in the states.

    Cons

    Working as independent contractor means you have to set aside money on a quarterly bases for federal and state taxes, and keep all of your tax deductible receipts.

    I have been working at PresenceLearning part-time

    Pros

    I love working for this company. I love the flexibility, I love the innovation, and I love the freedom. I work with great kids, and so many are makng excellent progress. Overall I am very happy working here - I have found my calling.

    Cons

    There are certain people who are in the know more than others, more than just higher level employees. It feels like there is a cool kids table and then there's everyone else. The cool kids have all the information, and only small bits of it get passed down. I can't help shaking the feeling that no matter how hard I work, I will never be in that club.

    Advice to Management

    This company is doing amazing things. But please remember that you have hundreds of therapists who really need to know what is going on and who does what. Please, please stay true to the spirit of what you started.
