    I worked at Advanced Academics full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Some positions can be done largely remotely. Very good pay and benefits. Raises in place. Most positions work within a team.

    Cons

    At the time I worked there VERY poorly developed platform and product that gave little regard to best practices in education. Students were given incomplete, ineffective, and often incompetent online modules to work through and then given poor assessments over material that was barely addressed. Asked to work many more hours than I was originally told without additional compensation (often 50-60 hours/ week and through holidays) and outside of the areas I was hired for in an extremely high stress environment. There also was not a lot of flexibility in when hours could be worked and supervisors had zero boundaries for contacting after hours and expecting an urgent response. Additionally we were told to align many courses to various state standards quite hastily and even when we, the educators and developers absolutely did not feel like the most basic minimum standards had been satisfactorily addressed-- so understandably our teachers were constantly getting the wrath of administrators, parents, and students.

    Advice to Management

    Work on your school products and services before you grow sales. Ask for vertical feedback on supervisors and don't reward supervisors who are disrepectful of their employees work-life balance. Incorporate best practices research into your products.
