    Pros

    Brilliant accomplished people brought to achieve more within education

    Cons

    Some Fellows wanted a resume boost but were not connected to the overall experience

    Advice to Management

    Before initial application and interview weed out individuals who are not involved in making a lasting impact in education. A top university and or some fellowship experience does not translate to success.

    Pros

    Great people. Very collaborative: if you need help or ideas, just ask for it

    Rewarding to introduce people from a business background to lesser known opportunities in K-12 education. Teachers know EP as a path into non-classroom positions in education.

    EP is very well known in the education sector. Pride with being affiliated with them!

    Cons

    Very successful first decade. Figuring out EP's place in the K-12 education sector moving forward is creating a lot of uncertainty.

    Staff turnover at the lower and mid-levels is concerning and creates a lot of work for everyone.
