    I worked at Edmentum (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good base salary and commissions/bonuses.
    Innovative online products with regular product updates.
    Working as part of a team in assigned territory can be a positive experience if you have team members who understand how to team together in a way that produces excellent results

    Cons

    Internal processes and policies can slow down the sales process.
    Working as part of a team with someone who would rather be a lone wolf may hurt your sales outcome for your shared territory.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on ways to enhance processes and policies for the sales process to flow more smoothly - the sales teams and customers will greatly appreciate it.
    Provide coaching to team members who need help with understanding best practices of teaming together with assigned team members for the best possible sales outcomes. Don't allow lone wolves to hurt any teams' sales results.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to stay focused on making education accessible, effective, and fun for all learners, and remember these things when you're making decisions about your employees as well. You have so many talented, passionated, and genuinely kind people working for you and they will give you back what you put into them.

    Pros

    Worked from home, worked part-time

    Cons

    I would like to file a lawsuit against this company for harassment. I was harassed by a supervisor who does the evaluations. Upon having a meeting, my computer was having issues, so I called her instead, and she blew up screaming at me for being 15 minutes late for the online meeting. Very unprofessional behavior, I was with the company longer than she was, so I was token back by how unprofessional this company is. and how they go through good, qualified teacher, because of people like this. Never in my career have I EVER worked with such an irate person! Poor professionalism. Was not paid for 2 hour long meetings, which by law I can sue over too..

    Advice to Management

    Train your employees who are supervisors to be more professional in working with educators or anyone for that matter.

    Cons

    Managers in curriculum department have terrible social skills. There were days I didn't even see my manager and she didn't go out of her way to check on employees. If I got up to visit with coworkers, I was given dirty looks. They treated us like school age children. I worked there 5 years and was fired without any sort of warning for the stupidest reason. Apparently management has enough time to read through months and months of instant messaging conversations to come up with reasons to fire employees who have done good work. Now I am without insurance and have a family to support. My son is 18 months old and I am scrambling to get us covered. COBRA would cost me over $1000. I recently trained other employees on how to use our program which shows I have experience and knowledge about the job. It's a shame. The job was a good job, it was challenging and after five years, I felt very comfortable there and happy with my job. The management is going to ruin the curriculum department.

    Advice to Management

    Find something to do other than read through instant messaging conversations. If you really want to read through them, then maybe use it as a resource for areas to improve. If you have to threaten employees to only talk positive about the company and managers, then you are clearly doing something wrong.
