Current Employee - Learning Strategy Consultant

I have been working at D2L full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Excellent culture in terms of how we work with clients, transparency of leadership, interest in championing client success

It was a whole new world for me coming from higher ed into corporate when it came to billable hours, selling and that kind of thing - without a lot of support to make that transition successfully

Consistently allocating time for client projects and "extra" projects
