    Former Employee - Account Manager in West Des Moines, IA

    I worked at GeoLearning

    Pros

    The pay rate was fine and there was flexibilty with my schedule as long as I was performing.

    Cons

    Too much middle management and many road blocks to getting things done. The focus of my Manager was his paycheck and when he did listen to issues he made me feel better at the time but then did not follow up. Felt it was a waste of time to share feedback. When Geo was acquired I was let go with a group of 40 or so of my peers over a conference call that lasted less than 5 minutes. Sum did not have my severance package ready and I had to make multiple calls and emails over the course of 3-4 weeks to straighten things out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Majority felt they were in it for themselves only.

    I worked at GeoLearning

    Pros

    Lot's of freedom to creatively solve problems, casual work environment, treated you like an adult.

    Cons

    Lost a lot of staff after acquisition - as happens when a company gets sold. Too bad, a lot of talent was lost.

    I have been working at GeoLearning

    Pros

    Good technology and very family oriented. A very liberal organization if that is what one wants vs. transparency and accountability. VERY hard to get fired.

    Cons

    No accountability at any level, too many mid level management, some of which make no obvious contribution and they keep changing titles to appear relevant; company direction at the mid-level shifts month to month. Targets in sales are unrealistic for the number of people they have and there are no rewards for achievement nor ramifications for failure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Use your own technologies for Performance Management and design a recogntion program that encourages people to want to be better than the person beside them. Demand "leadership" from mid management. Lead from the front and not from the rear.
