    I have been working at Ascend Learning full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - the HR worked with my constraints and made sure all my legal hurdles were taken care of - very friendly HR staff - laid work culture - trust the employees - open atmosphere with easy access to other developers - very good benefits package - start up company atmosphere with matured company perks (best of both worlds)

    Cons

    - nothing at this time, I will update constantly of any experiences

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Ascend Learning for more than a year

    Pros

    Honestly having a hard time finding one.

    Cons

    They don't give you the tools you need and it's an archaic business model it astounds me that they are successful given they are an online product. Be prepared to work under people that have no clue the first thing about technology.

    Advice to Management

    Literally clear house from top down.

    I have been working at Ascend Learning for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexible work hours and easy parking

    Cons

    Low bandwidth technical dept. Political infighting, and IT leadership who check the box and simply don't understand modern software development practices
