    Pros

    I had autonomy and the ability to do work with great people without being micromanaged. I felt like my opinion was highly valued and that people were open to new ideas. The culture was close and the people I met were some of the best I have ever worked with.

    Cons

    We had a niche product and felt like we had to sell the company in order to compete. The leadership was good in most areas but you could run into challenging people in others.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the bad leader who is bringing down an entire team. Most importantly, keep your focus on employees and client satisfaction.

    Pros

    There was a lot of flexibility with Learn.com. I was given many opportunities to make a difference and achieve successes. I loved the leadership team. They were all very passionate and smart. No one micro managed you.

    Cons

    They sold the company to Taleo. That was a big mistake. The only ones that made out on that one were the shareholders.

    Advice to Management

    Too late for that now :(

    Pros

    Company has a clear vision and very strong marketing department who definitely take a glass is half full approach. Team approach to getting the job done. Never left out on an island.

    Cons

    Salary and benefits are week. Lack of performance management, no clear vision of career advancement or performance baseed incentives. HR department is a bit MIA at times. Good luck knowing what youre benefits are or how much PTO you have remaining

    Advice to Management

    Its all good, hope the Taleo buy-out doesnt equal the end of the LDC culture.

    Pros

    Career advancement Rewards for the best performers, the door for under performers Excellence at management level Strong product that is pitch perfect for current market place Amazing team atmosphere -- folks do anything and everything for each other and for clients and prospects Strong commitment to do what's right be clients

    Cons

    Fast pace -- be prepared to work Be great or be gone -- you need to bring your A game because that's who you are working with Sometimes it's ok to use outside tools, maybe a little too much "drink our own champagne" on occasion

    Advice to Management

    Continue to open lines of communication via social tools -- wikis, blogs, microblogs within the company Keep doing what you are doing; culture is strong, product is great, leadership is top notch...

    Pros

    Good people, some of the best I have ever worked with. Innovative company that is always trying to improve its products and is very concerned about how clients/customers use the product and perceive the company. Very service oriented.

    Cons

    Some in senior management, aside from CEO, CFO, CTO and GC can be insensitive and belittle the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Overall, I think this is a well run company and I am proud to work there.

    Pros

    Product - One of the top three LMSs in the corporate eLearning space Marketing - Great , well-oiled machine, in fact, a little too good People - Make the company what it is, especially some relatively recent additions to Finance and Product Marketing Future Stock Options - Recent development for existing employees. Though management needed to do something to appease folks as the job market slowly improves

    Cons

    Pay - Bad for most...as many are just making enough to pay bills, if that. Some people there have second jobs/businesses on the side. Lack of training/process efficiency - Company definately doesn't "eat their own caviar." If one doesn't make friends and allies at this place, they will sink. Executive Leadership - certain ones are 'spastic' while others won't even acknowledge the presense of employees who bust their butts for the place and them. Their extreme cheapness also gives the impression that there is a cash flow issue. Morale - Windowless, cave-like HQ facility (used to belong to Diamonds.com) complete with the smell of mold (well, South Florida!). No company-wide events, parties, teambuilding whatsover. Turnover........

    Advice to Management

    1). Make candidates aware of what type of place LDC historically (process-challenged) is and the transformation it is going through today prior to hiring them as it will help curb the common turnover. 2). Make changes on the EC to ensure a successful IPO or Acquistion
