    I have been working at The Achievement Network (more than a year)

    Pros

    It is great to work for an organization that is truly getting results and making an impact. I have worked at other organizations who are very hit and miss in their approach to issues and are not really effective in their mission. Because ANet is is young and growing organization, there is always an opportunity to thought partner, create practice, and see your work as a visible piece of everyday practice.

    Cons

    Because the organization is so high-growth, practice is constantly evolving making norms very challenging to reach.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be helpful see a higher level of accountability amongst senior management. There are not really practices in place that hold higher ups to corrective measures. However, because of the open policies across teams, ANet proves to be highly collegial.

    I have been working at The Achievement Network full-time

    Pros

    You work with some of the smartest and mission driven people you will ever encounter. Time in meetings is spent efficiently. Employees have the flexibility to think outside the box. Work hours can be flexible, dependent on the position.

    Cons

    There is not a lot of transparency about salary expectations. Maternity benefits are not great. Work load can sometimes be unreasonable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to consider posting salary ranges so that we know where to start negotiations when being hired, and so that we know we are being compensated fairly. Work load for servicing schools should be rethought.

    I worked at The Achievement Network

    Pros

    People are mission-driven, committed to ending inequity in public education. The staff are young, high-energy, and friendly.

    Cons

    The management expects employees to work over 50 hours a week. There is no clear career advancement path. Expectations are unrealistic given the ever-changing nature of the work. It is a good company for flexible type-A personalities or young people in their 20's, not those who prioritize family.
