    Pros

    - Progressive and good at recognizing and rewarding talent - Very competitive salaries and benefits - Friendly and humble managers who actually listen to and respect employees - Management seems to have a very clear understanding of goals, and it trickles down well all the way from CEO to low-level managers - Flexible with days off - Probably the most intelligently-designed technology platform I worked on.

    Cons

    Everyone e-mails everyone with everything and you end up with hundreds of e-mails a day.

    Advice to Management

    Management is actually doing a good job driving the company with a clear message and goals, all the way down from CEO to low-level managers.

    Pros

    Ten years ago this company was a bright light of potential. Good compensation and benefits, and a fairly positive work environment among staff. Excellent, ground-breaking educational materials in the field of internet safety and digital literacy.

    Cons

    CEO is a micro-manager, especially in the areas she does not understand. She frequently yells at employees and displays paranoia. Her small administrative staff bows to her every whim. There is a weird undercurrent of religious fervor - This is a very toxic workplace - avoid at all cost.

    Advice to Management

    Sell out and restructure.

    Pros

    Has some great ideas. Was very cutting edge at one point, but now just seems to provide a service schools have to have. Great place to learn in the moment.

    Cons

    A nonprofit totally revolving one person, the CEO and founder. A person of determination, but ruthless and has probably fired over 50 people since it's start. Unsure finances

    Advice to Management

    I don't think they would hear. It is a paranoid place, with management scared to make one wrong move. Very hard people. A clique.

    Pros

    Fantastic organization. I left i-SAFE because my wife relocated out of state. I still keep in touch with the team and I am very fond of my time there.

    Cons

    The territories are very big. While this provides a lot of opportunity it is also a challenge to keep up with the demand.

    Pros

    The potential to help children exists, but you won't have the tools necessary to accomplish this and you certainly shouldn't expect to be well compensated.

    Cons

    You may help some children but don't count on making any money in the process. Upper management has no sales experience and lives in a bubble. Corporate culture is downright bizarre. Sales is burdened with reports, research, endless meetings of little or no importance, meager commissions, paltry base salary, etc. Yet, management's expectations are....HUGE (of course)!

    Advice to Management

    Pay people at a level commensurate with your expectations. Give employees the tools they need in order to fulfill expectations, then get out of the way. Be up front with your employees. The smart ones figure out what's going on quickly and start looking for better opportunities almost immediately.

    Pros

    Internet Safety program is leader in industry and well written thanks to the Curriculum Director and staff. Students benefit from going through program

    Cons

    Owner of i-SAFE has no real interest in Internet Safety, only the funding from the DOJ. Too many family members and close friends working at company.

    Advice to Management

    Give more credit to employees for hard work achieved. Be fair to employees that are not family members. High employee turnover... about 80% due to management stlye
