    My Training Experience On my first day at Genius Plaza, I sat in the common area for twenty minutes awkwardly watching people file in as I waited for someone to greet me. After my boss finally decided to come over and speak me to, I discovered that there was no computer ready for me to use and no one had decided where i would sit. Finally, a computer was dug out of a drawer and was bequeath to me. It worked - sorta. Yay, the bare minimum. The totality of my training consisted of a ten-minute tutorial on the platform from another employee, and that was it. From that moment on, I was thrown into projects and given no context or guidance. I asked questions to try and learn the ins and outs of the job, but the people in charge gave me little to no assistance. Once I got the hang of a project I’d been thrown into, the department’s priorities would change and I (and other team members) would be left trying to figure out what the new expectations were. Contradictory instructions were commonplace, as was mass confusion. “Benefits” I would like to back up what another former employee said regarding being given one day to choose a health plan - this is true. While I did not get insurance through Genius Plaza, I did witness the meeting at which employees were briefed on their health plan options, and they DID have one day to decide. This condition may have changed between that date and now, but it is not factually inaccurate to that person’s experience. To not acknowledge the fact that this was once the case is fraudulent. The Crippling Incompetence of the Management The head of my department didn’t know what a contraction was. Nor did she conceive of the difference between a pronoun and a proper noun, or the difference between past and present tense. So you tell me, how could she effectively manage content production? Protip: she couldn’t. Human Resources My experience with human resources was abysmal. On multiple occasions, I witnessed the mocking of former employees after their termination...quite the experience to hear sentiment like that come from a person in a human resources position. Workplace concerns were not taken seriously at the HR level, but I honestly believe that even if they had been, nothing would have been done because the CEO doesn’t care enough to address them effectively. If you had anything negative to say, the CEO would say that you don’t believe in the mission or are not dedicated to the mission. Well, caring about the mission and caring about one’s own daily happiness and ability to make a living in a pleasant environment are not mutually exclusive.

    We take your shared narrative very seriously and will investigate the validity of same.
    However, we cannot change issues/circumstances that are moot and irrelevant to the current working conditions... More

    NO JOB TRAINING, Single day of open enrollment for expensive health insurance plans, HR messed up my pay on multiple occasions

    Dear Anonymous Former Employee:

    Your Glassdoor posting is factually inaccurate. Genius Plaza provided its employees with 6 days (not “a single day”) to review the offered healthcare plan options... More

    The company only offered a single day of open enrollment for healthcare plans. The plans are basically unaffordable if you want to add a spouse or child, especially considering the pay here.

    The company's health benefits are from New York state, which are almost 4 TIMES the cost compared to Florida plans. A family plan, health + dental, is just under $1,000 a month after the generous $500 credit the company offers. On average a Florida family plan, at most, is under $400 for both health & dental (food for thought).

    The salary pay raise based on the experience and results and the worst thing maybe should be that we dont have 401 K benefit

    Lots of little benefits that really add up.
