    I worked at LRN full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The mission attracts the best, the brightest and most wonderfully idealistic colleagues one could ask to work alongside. Every day is an opportunity to learn, grow and enhance the culture around you while helping companies around the world to the same.

    I’m sorry to see recent reviews bemoaning the closure of the LA office, but strategically it was a smart, though tough business decision and a lot of thought went into it. I say this, even as a casualty of that decision. At LRN, they celebrate reflection, collaboration and thoughtfulness in all decision making and this situation was no different. I enjoyed my 10+, ever-evolving years at LRN and generally feel that the company did right by me.

    Cons

    LRN sets a high bar for itself, in terms of mission and principles, so when any of its colleagues or leadership falls short of that bar, it opens the company up to criticism. So, if you work there, be ready for critique. It’s also not always a place with a clear track for career advancement, BUT it is a place that openly encourages every single employee to flex their leadership muscles and to blaze their own path to further the mission. Admittedly, that’s not for everyone, but for those who welcome the opportunity, it can enhance your career and your worldview.

    Advice to Management

    As I said before, LRN attracts the best and brightest. Listen to them, even if you don’t agree with them. Significance will be found only through the connection and collaboration between the leadership of the company and its colleagues and partners. This also includes former colleagues, even those who have written negative reviews on this very site. Find the kernel of truth in every criticism, try to see LRN through the eyes of its critics and work to learn and grow from it. That is what is asked of each employee and the same should be true for the company as a whole. There is great potential at LRN to change behavior and it must be always willing to enhance its own behavior to get there.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at LRN (New York, NY).

    Interview

    In-person interviews - casual conversations
    Liked the people and the mission of the company - the people are very passionate
    Offer was incredibly low salary wise - wish recruiter had clarified at beginning of process. Made me think that the company will have a hard time attracting talent moving forward
