    Pros

    Awesome Program, Great Support, Great Compensation Package and Regional Team Effort & Support.

    Cons

    Has a reputation of terminating if quotas aren't reached & sometimes quotas can be very high. Has had high turnover. However I think that this message has been heard by Management and is changing.

    Advice to Management

    There is currently a great sales force, keep them and allow flexibility with quotas based on sales history

    Talented group of good and hard working people who are great to be around and to learn from.

    Pros

    Hard working team members who don't let ego get in the way of their work. Lack of "office drama." Many opportunities to grow and learn. Great people, work/balance, and benefits. Ability to work remotely is a major plus. Managers let employees explore options on their own and guide them to solutions.

    Cons

    The company is growing and with that comes some pains that I imagine any company of this size would have. Communication between teams is a struggle, but is getting better.

    Excellent product, always investing to make it better. Great mission to accelerate literacy for all kids. Most talented team I have ever worked with.

    Cons

    Standard growing pains of a high-growth company.

    Pros

    This is a company that is going places. They continue to invest in the business, systems & software. Not just focused on the short term. Great environment for learning new stuff. Also, they accommodate flexible schedules and telecommuting. This is a great company!

    Cons

    The culture is not for everybody. Sometimes the work can get pretty intense, but I enjoy that kind of env.

    Advice to Management

    More market share!
