    I have been working at Education Elements full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The consulting team is a group of smart, passionate and hard-working former educators/consultants that truly care about changing the landscape of education. The team is collaborative, joyful and distributes leadership/ownerhsip well. Most school districts are highly satisfied with the services and the EE team members they get to partner with.

    The company is focused on growing services beyond its core personalized learning offering. This creates opportunities for team members to pursue other areas of interest and have the resources to build expertise in these.

    Cons

    District partnerships are all over the country, so team members must be committed to travel (50% of work time is about average). The schedule does reflect the school year, and when schools are on break, consultants get a lot more down time.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure that team members feel supported in project work and clear on their development pathways. Leadership should focus not only on sales, but equally on the development of employees and providing feedback on project deliverables.

    Digital Marketing Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Education Elements in December 2019.

    Interview

    The interview process was quite extensive for an entry-level position -- I had 2 phone interviews, 2 video conference interviews, and was supposed to be flown to San Fransisco to interview in person before they cancelled it at the last minute.

    The questions were often redundant, almost as if the interviewer confused your responses with other candidates or didn't remember what you had talked about in previous conversations. I was also asked to complete 3 skills assessment assignments. Two of them were practically the same assignment, but one of them I completed on my own time and emailed to the hiring manager and the other one I had to complete during a Zoom interview while the hiring manager watched me work in a Google Doc.

    • Can you tell me about a time that you faced a challenge at work and how did you handle it?   Answer Question

    School Districts Are Standing In The Way Of Public School Edtech

    No gymnasiums, no cafeterias and no administrators. That's school policy at AltSchools, a chain of private, for-profit schools backed by the likes of Andreessen Horowitz and Mark Zuckerberg. At the location I visited, the school schedule was written on a white board and could be changed in real time.
