    I have been working at Benchmark Education full-time

    Pros

    Family owned by passionate people who love educating kids, competing with big companies, responding to teachers, and giving employees what they need to succeed.

    Contributions are more than welcomed, they are desired. I'd say this place isn't for everyone but that's a good thing. This company listens and appreciates good ideas. Very smart people!!

    Cons

    It's a business with passionate people. I hear, but have not experienced, that passion sometimes leads to yelling.
    Needs to improve systems...A little dated.

    Advice to Management

    Keep employees first. Encourage contribution. Don't be afraid to market and promote our core values. We are not and should not be like all the others.
