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

    Pros

    Great People and culture. My direct manager was the best that I have ever had. He was a mentor/friend. Loved the team I was working with

    Cons

    Horrible product. All senior leadership was from AOL. If you are going to have senior leadership all from another company woulldn't you want them to be from a successful company? Or at least a company that wasn't part of the worst merger in corporate history. Horrible hires for the product team. The CPO has never stayed at a single company longer than 2 years. Annual lay offs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company still has no direction... Products are continually delayed. Sales and Marketing is really hamstrung by the inadequacies of the product. Try teaching the language the way learners want to be taught. There is a reason why the product stays on bookshelves longer than is actually used.

    Former Employee - Sales Associate in Fort Worth, TX

    I worked at Rosetta Stone part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great commission during high sales like Christmas and back-to-school, decent work load, access to Rosetta Stone products, discounts, great bosses, excited customers

    Cons

    Hard to sell most of the time because of high price, extremely slow days were very common (sometimes not even one customer), mall hours, minimum wage

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep in mind that even the best sales person can have a difficult time selling a high dollar product to people if they just don't have the money to spend. Keep up the good job on motivating your sales team.
