Be ready to deal with constant change

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

Pros-awesome kids
-mission driven company
-most of your coworkers are awesome, innovative people who genuinely want to create change in a community
-really excellent benefits packages, even for hourly employees

Cons-really high turnover in teachers since most are hired from Teach for America
-things are CONSTANTLY changing
-hourly employees are not well compensated for what they are expected to do
-many problems that occur are embedded in the model of Rocketship, and sometimes it feels like you're either with them, or not...trying to address critical problems to management is difficult because it is often taken as "Anti-Rocketship" culture

Advice to Senior Management-allow a safe space for employees to address their issues
-if possible, double the outdoor space of each site (or consider building on larger sites when opening new schools). this would seriously solve so many unnecessary issues.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Would Never Recommend - Do not be fooled by "Launch"

    Teacher (Former Employee) San Jose, CA

    I worked at Rocketship Education full-time for more than 3 years


    Pros: - Teachers are, for the most part, highly motivated and… Cons: - Hours: 7:45-4:30 with kids, then add prep. Also at least 1 late evening event each month that teachers are expected to prep and… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
