I worked at Learn.com full-time (More than 3 years)
I had autonomy and the ability to do work with great people without being micromanaged. I felt like my opinion was highly valued and that people were open to new ideas. The culture was close and the people I met were some of the best I have ever worked with.
We had a niche product and felt like we had to sell the company in order to compete. The leadership was good in most areas but you could run into challenging people in others.
Advice to Management
Get rid of the bad leader who is bringing down an entire team. Most importantly, keep your focus on employees and client satisfaction.
I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Learn.com in January 2009.
Initial contact for the position was through a mutual acquaintance on professional networking site. Everything happened very fast -- the whole process was done in about 3 weeks from initial email to offer letter.
Not much room with negotiation.
