    I have been working at Teaching Strategies full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I have been with Teaching Strategies for more than five years, and while there have been challenging times (what workplace doesn't have them?), I stay because I truly believe in the mission of the company and the values held by the senior leadership team. Not only is it a company founded by a woman, it currently has strong, fearless woman as the CEO, and that's extremely important to me as a working mom.

    The purpose of Teaching Strategies is to make the work lives of ECE teachers (who are predominantly female) better, and I truly believe we do that. We had a few years where members of our leadership team weren't ECE people--they had never spent any time in the classroom. I truly believe that having that experience of being in the classroom, knowing what teachers NEED, is what makes Teaching Strategies such a different company to work for.

    All companies and employers have their downside--it's the nature of "work." If you find a place where your values align with the company's and you believe in the work you're doing and the products you're developing, then that's a good thing. You can't find that everywhere, and I've worked in many different companies across many different fields. When you find it, you bring your best to the company. And at Teaching Strategies, it's rewarded.

    Cons

    The open work environment can be challenging to those with sensory issues, but mgmt is more than willing to make accommodations when needed.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Teaching Strategies (Bethesda, MD) in February 2014.

    Interview

    very quick and not thorough. no one called my recommendations. no one asked for work products or to complete an activity. very little communication. should have know then it was a bad move.
