Supportive team environment. Leadership values the voice you all teammates.
None that I can think of.

Good place for flexibility and pay bump if you are looking to enter private industry or consulting space from the classroom or a school district.
The business sells more work than it has the hours or experience to staff and burns out employees. More veteran team members say this how it has always been. A lack of consistent management structures means work is unequally spread across the team and promotions are based on relationships rather than performance.Continue reading
We are sorry to hear that you feel this way. We value all feedback and want to work with individuals to address concerns.

We encourage you to reach out so we can work together towards improvements.

Collaborative, Innovative, Responsive Organization, Client Relationships
Busy working hours, a lot of travel, not a lot of room to move up in the company
Collaborative, innovative, responsive - we attribute these qualities to the amazing team that we have. Because of these qualities, we have been able to develop deep client relationships. We are constantly working to make improvements that best meet our client’s needs, provide growth opportunities for our consultants and innovate on new ways to deliver services. Some of these changes take time to develop but please know the we are here to listen to evolving needs and collaborate to create solutions.

smart people, lots of professional growth for yourself
lack of solid, important structures (i.e. performance reviews) and lots of ambiguity - get very tiring after awhile
Thank you for your review! Yes we have incredibly smart people and seek to create an environment that fosters personal growth. We are happy to hear that has been your experience! To continue to support that culture of learning, we are working towards more defined structures that meet the needs of our growing team.

Leadership is dedicated to employee development & empowerment. They have built decentralized decision making structures and give employees ample opportunities to work outside of their designated lanes.
The extra work outside of your designated role can be burdensome to manage.Continue reading

Umm..... can not think of any. Except for may be they are close to Hiller museum food trucks. Get free food once a week.
If you are a tech person, this is not a place for you. Everyone here works in a constant fear and tries to do all tasks by themselves by working long hours. Why do they do that you ask? No trust in team. No trust on management. Well to be fair, leadership is weak. Have no sense of direction. Absolutely no focus on big picture. If you are person who is serious about your career, this is no place for you .
We are sorry to hear that you feel that way. We strive to make Ed Elements a place where people love what they do, trust each other, and work together to help us with our vision - to create dynamic school systems and have a lasting impact on the lives of the students, teachers and leaders within them. We are always open to direct feedback so please let us know if you have suggestions for improvement.

-Education Elements has a great mission, working hard to help clients improve learning experiences and outcomes for all students. -Management is open to feedback, and constantly evolving as a result. Management tries hard to be honest and transparent about changes and company outlook. -There is lots of opportunity for growth. Be ready to grow! -Lots of very intelligent hardworking people.
-Five years in, but still has the pains of a typical startup. There currently exists a lack of structure in many areas. While there is a desire to improve this, there isn't really a clear path to get there. -Very long hours. Everyone is expected to be a salesperson all of the time. Services roles are not ideal for someone who is not interested in upselling or "schmoozing" with clients as this is expected of everyone. This is unfortunate as it can push away those who might be of great service otherwise.Continue reading
Thank you for your feedback. I know many of us love working for a company that is, as you mention, mission-oriented and working towards something so important - how we can work with school systems to improve learning for students. I appreciate your advice. We will continue to be transparent and use our weekly Friday company meetings as a way to communicate; but will continue to look for other vehicles as well. I hope the new addition of both GSD Friday afternoons, as well as the Train Your Brain monthly afternoons, help to address some of the concerns about hours as well as the need for PD. Keep the ideas coming - we are listening and doing what we can to make it an even better place to work.
