    Pros

    People are very bright, passionate and talented. They really care about improving educational experience for both teachers and students.

    Cons

    Communication across divisions is very weak. Lots of silo work and it is hard to get promoted or get a salary increase.

    Advice to Management

    Need to open to changing operational procedures and communicate more effectively from top down. Seems like a lot of talented people doing work that may not be value added if there is lack of direction.

    Pros

    Genuinely nice people who care about education, work-life balance is usually healthy, some flexible scheduling and work-from-home policies. Newer divisions of the company are very healthily funded.

    Cons

    Unclear division responsibilities between some job functions and lack of cohesive vision from upper management creates much confusion and wheel-spinning at the ground level. Miserly amount of paid time off until 1 year of service. Pay under market, despite huge infusion of cash from News Corp.

    Advice to Management

    Communication from upper management to employees needs vast improvement. Many department managers are spread far too thin. Performance review policies need an overhaul!

    Pros

    Wireless Generation is doing wonderful things as a company. Most employees are passionate about education, intelligent and friendly. Cool office overlooking the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges. Free beverages.

    Cons

    HR worked in a bubble compared to the rest of the company. Employee morale and satisfaction was low and turnover was high. Upper HR management was inexperienced and short-sided. There was also zero professional development and training. The benefits package leaves a lot to be desired.

    Advice to Management

    Investigate what is going on in HR; Employees are leaving left and right. Start investing more in your employees.

    If you are going to work in the HR department do your homework on who is in charge before accepting an offer.

    Pros

    The company is doing great things with bringing technology and education together.

    Cons

    This was the worst micro management and hostile treatment I have ever experienced. Has a very bad reputation in the local market for high turnover in HR/Recruiting.

    Advice to Management

    C level executives need to investigate on what the real reason is for everyone leaving.
