    I have been working at EdisonLearning full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have had the pleasure to work for EdisonLearning for almost two decades. I watched as EdisonLearning filled a need and led a nascent industry into one that today impacts the lives of hundreds of thousands. The professional support and continuous education that I have received is unparalleled and has truly been life changing. The professionals I work with are passionate and committed educators. This place has touched my heart. I am humbled by the size of the task and the needs of the students and dedicated to working alongside my colleagues on this monumental endeavor everyday.

    Cons

    Just a reminder to continue to strategically align resources to meet company goals.

    Advice to Management

    Looking forward to the new human resources systems in evaluation, compensation and 401K restructure.

    Pros

    EdisonLearning is an excellent work environment marked by such attributes as competitive wages, trust between the employees and management, fairness for everyone, and a sensible work load with challenging yet achievable goals. All this comes together to provide the best possible working conditions.

    Cons

    No cons at all. Sure there are things that all companies could get better at, If anything I'd say acquire more schools, so that we can get the top tier talent to keep us heads above our competitors.

    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.
