    Pros

    Been working with EdDy for a few years in multiple roles. Lots of flexibility and growth depending on your group but definitely need to put in some effort to standout to your direct managers and exec team. Not a very process driven organization. If that’s your thing you’ll have plenty of fun building out your own systems and strategies (possibly a con depending how your work.) Overall the office is pretty relaxed and casual. Exec team is mostly transparent with company health ( more so than I’ve seen elsewhere at least) New, much more modern office coming in early 2019 will certainly help how we are perceived both internally and externally.

    Cons

    Important focus on hitting financial results, so when it does get tight, you lose a bit on the casual and relaxed atmosphere mentioned above. A couple of teams are running leaner on resources than they should be a lot of the time.

    Pros

    Desirable office location. Few find their work difficult. Quality Healthcare. Donation matching.

    Cons

    Just about every office stereotype you can think of that perpetuates negative behavior, exists here. Below example is only the most recent.

    Pros

    great environment coworkers are amazing!

    Cons

    management is trying to turn the culture into a for profit institution when we work with non profit schools. No real mobility or way to significantly increase your earnings.

    Pros

    Good office, can WFH sometimes, fun people

    Below average technology for internal users. CEO thinks the internal tech is great.. has no idea we're very much behind the times on all fronts.

    Pros

    The people are pretty nice, although literally everyone hates their job.

    Cons

    The management is bad. Pretty much everyone complains that if you're a director or above, you can't get fired, but if you're below, you are expendable. They literally fire lower level people every year to make budget. A high level person sent out an email to everyone with all salaries shown. Nothing happened. There are also two units of the business that have done nothing but fail and everyone who works in them leaves or is fired - except the incompetent senior directors and vps. All this company cares about is trying to make budget. No career growth, no mentor type things, team building, bad salaries. Everyone talented leaves. Or gets fired. I'm leaving soon too. Save yourself, don't work here.

    I worked at EducationDynamics full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Free coffee, really nice co workers that can relate to how miserable the job is also the building they rented out was so pretty but they are moving to a run down building in 2017. Weekly pay, that's about it.

    Cons

    This place is a sweat shop and the reason I will never work for another call center again in my life. You literally take probably 400 calls a day talking to ppl who are looking for jobs and get transferred to you with out their knowledge so that you can get cussed out by them because they never wanted to go to school. Calls are literally back to back for 8 hours straight. No bathroom breaks outside of your 15 min break so good luck ladies. I got hired through a Temp agency so although I made $3,000 dollars in commission on top of my hourly every month, they pocketed my money and never gave me a dime. They claim you're temporary for "90 days" just to find out you really have to work about 720 hours which equals to about 5 months no commission. I got hired at $13 an hour and a month later new people were there at $16 an hour. They really don't care about you personally they just use you up until you're miserable then kick you to the cirb. Turn around rate is ridiculous, people quit every week. I really hated going to work every day and will never work at another call center ever again.
