      Good People and Great Benefits

      Aug 24, 2021 - Senior Project Manager 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Lots of friendly people, very collaborative environment in general. Interesting projects to manage. Great benefits and generous time off. I've also only experienced positive, supportive managers, although I've heard that can vary depending on where you are in the company. Long-established business recently branching out into new markets. Annual profit sharing bonus. Mid-size company that has a small company feel. Many long-term employees (10 years plus).

      Cons

      Management tends to pigeon-hole people and does NOT invest in the professional development of their staff. There is not a defined path to move up in the company and many positions don't have much (or any) room for growth. Leadership pretty much ignores the two smaller divisions (Survey Services and Document Services) and focuses only on the Education business. Annual increases are NOT based on merit, so it doesn't give one much to work toward -- can be unmotivating.

      Pros

      Good company, management team, low stress

      Cons

      1. It was only a temporary position. 2. Some readers got bored and started talking or napping instead of working. I had to "counsel" some people a few times, but it didn't make me like the job any less.

      Decent place to work

      Sep 17, 2020 - Test Scorer/Team Leader in King of Prussia, PA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      I worked for two scoring seasons, one in 2017 and then in 2018 when I also got promoted to Team Leader. Both the work and the pay is decent, and I met a lot of good people there. Readers are mostly either fresh graduates, retirees, or people in between jobs. Each person you meet there has their own interesting story to tell. The work itself is easy and comes with only little to no pressure. There's always free coffee available and a vending machine too. There were also a couple of times when someone on the project anonymously bought lunch for everyone...again, some really good people there.

      Cons

      I mean, it is what it is. You're staring at a computer screen all day. Sometimes you might not agree with a scoring decision and you'll just have to go with what your scoring director or team leader says...so it depends if that'll bother you or not. Another major con is that projects are not always available so it's possible to have some weeks that you're not earning a paycheck.
