    I worked at LRN

    Pros

    I had the opportunity to work with fantastic people and for a while I felt that there was a great opportunity to change the world at LRN. The salary was good and took a lot of good ideals away with me.

    Cons

    Working at LRN felt like a whirlwind of negativity. There was a lot of indecision and it felt like the company was full throttle in Drive and Reverse at the same time, ultimately going no where. There are so many people who, some justified some not, had very strong feelings against upper management and create a toxic work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I feel like Dov is a fantastic speaker and writer and should focus on what he is good at. Unless he gets some training, I see a lot more "learning" in LRN's future. Get better executives who are better leaders and tone down the hypocritical behavior then employees will trust you more.

    I worked at LRN

    Pros

    The people make or rather should I say made that place, though most have left or been laid off. There was an atmosphere of collaboration within the different departments, and shared recognition of the big goals presented to us daily.

    Cons

    Lack of interest or knowledge and communication from the top to really get a sense of the working persons jobs and day to day problems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find out what people do, and don't just try and please the number one.

    Pros

    The LRN message is fantastic.
    The employees are smart, nice, and really good people.

    Cons

    LRN is the antithesis of what they preach. It is the worst corporate culture out there. There is absolutely no integrity, no respect, and no trust. The management asked employees to post positive messages here (back to integrity), which did inspire me to post. It is truly a case study on how not to drive a positive culture. Culture is talked about constantly, and employees have meetings on parts of Dov's book - no one wants to go to the meetings, no one wants to express their feelings, no one trusts management. Every employee wants out, many leave without finding a job. It is debilitating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen and trust your people. You are not always smarter than everyone else.
