I have been working at International Institute for Learning full-time (More than 3 years)
I love the people I work with. My team collaborates really well. Each member works very hard and respects each others opinion. You are able to bring ideas to upper management and have those ideas listened to. Being that the company is small you have the ability to take on big projects that you may not have been able to take on at a bigger company. The company overall is pretty close knit.
With the pros of being close knit company there are also negatives to that effect. There are many people who have worked at the company for a long time and hold high positions from that longevity but are pretty much squatters that take advantage of their long relationship. Being a small company some projects that are detrimental in longterm take the backseat to day-to-day projects.
Advice to Management
As I previously mentioned in my pros, I have the ability to bring my ideas to upper management at anytime with advice that I have. So, they are aware of my suggestions and we are trying to work to get these necessary longterm projects taken care of.
I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at International Institute for Learning in January 2013.
Submit resume via company website. If you get a call back, which you most likely will then you will come in for an interview. Just ensure there are no typos in any emails or cover letters. IIL is all about giving people a chance, so even if you don't have tons of experience as long as you can convince them that you capable of selling and generating revenue then you will be brought in for a final round with the CEO/Founder.
CEO seems tough, but it is nicer than you think and straight shooter. Just convince her that you can sell, and you are golden. Three month trial period allows you to deliver.
there is none...you take what you get.
