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

    Pros

    Great teachers, they have worked for over four years with no raise, and I don't see one in their future anytime soon. "Ask again in Jan " is the answer they got. But yet the go to work every day happy, I believe it is purely out of love for what they do!

    Cons

    Lack of leadership, low pay and the benefits are sketchie, no or little help from HR department.

    Advice to Management

    Prepare to be sold soon.

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

    Pros

    Environment in the office was very collaborative on a daily basis. Coworkers were helpful, and there for each other.

    Cons

    When contract was ended with a virtual school, the executives made no attempt to give employees a heads up or an opportunity to work with another school.

    In addition, I was called back 3 times after the original lay-off to be brought back on, and each time the conversation reached the point where I requested a formal offer (salary, start date, etc.), and was then told "management decided hiring you back is not in the budget".

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your quality employees, and provide opportunities to succeed, rather than making them feel expendable.
