    Pros

    Decent pay when compared to industry averages Good health benefits with decent healthy living programs to help earn extra money for HSA.

    Cons

    HR department might as well be non-existent. They don't take reports seriously. They just hope that you will stop contacting them with the reports instead of doing something about it. Different rules for employees with the same title in the same department. They will let one work from home and require the other to use PTO if they have a personal need to work from home for a day. However, if the office is closed due to weather or some other issue they expect the employees to work from home.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees fairly. If there is an expectation that employees will work from home when the office is closed on a business day; allow them to work from home when they have the need. Get an HR department that will actually do something other than ignore reports from employees in hopes that they will just go away.

    Pros

    Company is headed in the right direction, great senior leadership team. Inspiring culture, staff are in it for the right reasons: to help students. Revenue and profits still important, but leadership understands those will come with successful solutions.

    Cons

    Balance of decision-making may have swung too far from business and into hands of technology teams. Separate offices with mostly technology staff need a mix of business staff.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing, asking hard questions, looking more deeply into learning sciences and data to help improve learning and teaching.

    Pros

    Great hours and Great cafeteria food

    Cons

    Management plays favorites. It's all about politics. Managers know less than people they are supposed to be leading Have been a few racial complaints

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing favorites and learn how to do your job. Lose the attitude that you run the work because you make 50,000 a year
