I have been working at Ellucian full-time (More than a year)
Great culture with terrific people who support and seem to genuinely care about each another. I have not worked at a company where people are so willing to help each other. The mission of supporting higher education is personally gratifying and people have conviction in the good of what customers are doing which helps breed this culture. The company does a good job of supporting employees and creating an environment that is welcoming, supportive and collaborative. People work hard, but work-life balance and flexibility is also valued which can be rare in technology companies.
The industry (higher education) as a whole can tend to be late adopters, so the technology is not always on the cutting edge, although it is impactful. Because the industry is changing, Ellucian is having to adapt too, which sometimes leads to turnover of good people who have been at the company for a while. But it’s the right thing to do and management is doing well in managing through changes.
Advice to Management
Keep on the path – new management that has been brought in the past couple of year have been good additions. Now is the time to let consistency take hold so the company can stay focused a clear direction and execute.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Ellucian in November 2017.
I was recruited via Linkedin, and after a brief phone interview with the recruiter and another phone interview with the team I'd be joining, I was brought in for an on-site interview. Communication throughout the process was rapid and ongoing--which was a big positive for me.
