How is management perceived at Lingumi?

Pros

- Mostly lovely people who care deeply about the mission - Good benefits - Care about wellbeing - Focus on D&I and active listening (although this may have been lost in recent redundancies)

Cons

- Ego-driven product team who move very slowly - Almost no growth in the past year and are now having to pivot - No current opportunities for progression due to very short runway and junior managers - Some poor hiring decisions - Generally slow and uncertain decision making (the quickest decision they've made in the past year is redundancies)

Advice to Management

- Please reflect on the suitability of some SMT members for their roles, being unable to make hard decisions and instead brush aside problems until it's too late will put the company at risk. - Work on transparency, nothing is transparency until it can be understood by everyone so highly academic documents are not the solution

What is the company culture at Lingumi?

Pros

Our mission (if we accomplish it), will change the world of tomorrow through the children of today, bridging the gap between high cost of education and great education. Our first course focused on spoken English is 95% cheaper and 630% faster at teaching spoken English compared to an equivalent classroom experience. We are a world-class team spread across 4 cities around the world and come from all different walks of life - we collectively speak over 8 languages and some of us have mini Lingumi toddlers of our own. Even though we are all so different, we are all tied together by the same belief, that we can change the world of tomorrow through the children of today. Even though we're all hard-working and mission-driven, we're also genuine, friendly and authentic - celebrating each other in our wins and supporting each other in our improvements. Whichever way it goes, we are all determined to achieve great results in a positive manner. However, we're not all yes people. We are people who believe in challenging ethically, having honest and open conversations, and giving and receiving consistent feedback to help better one another.

Cons

A few years ago there would have been quite a few, however, over the last year we've found product market fit and product channel fit. We've also focused on building a culture that empowers every employee from the day that they join.

Advice to Management

Continue to hire the world's best people that are 100% aligned with our culture, and see themselves working towards a cause bigger than them
