    A well established company with quality software products and great employees.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe best reason to work here is the people. They created an enriching workplace experience.

    ConsThe biggest challenges are the unknowns. There is a lot of miscommunication right now.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMy best advice is to treat all employees with respect and be very open and willing to accept feedback.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGood people with a very important product line that helps students do better in school. Very fair compensation program with achievable goals.

    ConsBenefits could be better, very conservative Midwest company, not much flash. Product is showing its age and needs an update.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe a little less conservative, let your hair down a bit!

    If you just want a place to show up everyday and do your job, this could be the place.

    Engineering (Former Employee)
    Wisconsin Rapids, WI

    ProsThe benefits were great. Majority of people were really, really nice.

    ConsAlthough people were really nice, there was hardly an environment for creativity. You felt like you were working in a manufacturing environment and you had to do your job and not think. The company was more than happy to cover a problem up with people. People are the greatest assets, but problems don't fix themselves. Not a mindset of a innovative technology company, regardless of industry.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPush employees to be on the forefront of technology and look outside the box. Fix the problems by understanding the problems first, then assigning resources to tend to the problems. Understand other ways to do business and make sure employees don't fear you. Make sure they respect you. Mgmt. personnel have good hearts and intelligence, they just need to think out of the box and push back when things don't make sense

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Fair and honest, hiring the best

    Assistant (Former Employee)

    ProsThere was never a time when I felt I was treated unfairly or that the company acted in an unfair or dishonest manner.

    ConsAt this time, I can't come up with any cons about working at Renaissance Learning. The leadership was always focused on what was best for the end-user - the student.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue treating employees with kindness and fairness!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
