Mixed experience but great for your resume

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at George Lucas Educational Foundation as a contractor for more than a year

ProsAmple resources, a quality brand (Edutopia), highly-qualified staff and gorgeous offices. Biggest pro: it opens doors for future employment.

ConsUncertainty about where Edutopia is going and whether it can remain relevant. Poor staff communication. Also, senior staff and content team are remarkably undiverse -- no people of color.

Advice to Senior Management(1) Improve staff communication (2) Staff diversity creates content diversity, and could make your product more relevant.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

great team, focused mission, changing times

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at George Lucas Educational Foundation

ProsEdutopia and GLEF are leading brands in education

GLEF does important, high quality work to showcase best practices in K-12 education

GLEF has an incredibly talented, fun team of people to work with

Beautiful offices; flex schedules

ConsOver the past few years, there have been lots of changes as GLEF shifted its focus to 100% Internet distribution.

Unfortunately, this has resulted in staff turn-over and some disgruntled employees.

Also, the majority of Internet-savvy staff could be making higher salaries at other companies; many took steep paycuts for the opportunity to work at GLEF

Beautiful setting, terrible management

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at George Lucas Educational Foundation

ProsInspired, smart people and a wonderful mission. The company premises are gorgeous.

ConsVery political senior management. Two tier system: senior management is overstaffed and preoccupied with holding on to their jobs while regular staff is overworked and underpaid. Unfortunately, upper management politics undermine the mission.

Advice to Senior ManagementStaff morale would improve with direct communication and 360 performance reviews.
