  1. 1.0
    Former Employee

    Very Supremist, Redundant, Wasteful and Nepoticitc Place To Work.

    Sep 29, 2015 - Senior Advisor in New York, NY
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook


    A few snacks here and there in a clean and nicely managed office. Awesome mid to low level employees to network with. Excellent games pretend to work environment.


    1.The company has no direction. 2.Its very wasteful and has poor management. 3.Everything operates in an ad-hoc manner with no true cohesion and sense of purpose. 4.Everyone wants to push themselves and friends ahead even in the face of incompetence and this is welcome by the 'high-ups.' 5.No planning for the future operations with no sense of foresight. 6.Detached from the reality of K-12 education and real classroom teaching processes. 7.Dependent on too many outside resources which do not always identify with the company's product. 8.The product is poorly developed with no emphasis on bench marking and comparison to similar technology. 9.Does not have the proper system architecture for an application which is riddled with media. 10.No employee information confidentiality. 11.No upward mobility unless being colorful, overly sociably or a yes person; so if one is reserved, this isn't the place. 12.Lots of mutiny in departments and work is allocated based of affinity. 13.Simply a waste of an organization and a place for friends and family to thrive with a sprinkle of coloring on a white cake made of white sugar. 14.Marked with Failure, lack of respect, lawlessness and abuse of the funded source. 15.Not the right culture of a corporate environment.
