    I worked at Learn.com full-time for more than 3 years

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at Learn.com as an intern for more than a year

    Pros

    Cool group in multiple departments, generally a good group to work with.

    Cons

    The management was not ideal. The COO from before the Taleo acquisition is very bombastic.

    I worked at Learn.com

    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.

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at Learn.com

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 ManagementAdvice

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