Compensation - Competitive with the top paying companies in NYC
Exposure - Got to take complete responsibility of a product, right from requirement gathering to engineering to deployment. To be able to do this at start of your career made me learn quickly and helped build a good foundation.
Work culture: Open work culture. Everyone is approachable, even the CEO. Flexible work hours. work locations in multiple cities.
Nothing that bothered me. Management interacts with every employee, so things get sorted out very quickly.
If you're a student, gaining experience on the resume here is a good idea but just treat it like an internship.
There are multiple cons to this company. I have worked here for a long time and I am not exaggerating with my 1 Star ratings. This company makes false promises about career path opportunities and does not use any of the latest technologies for software development. They do not beta test their software and puts emphasis on launching immediately as the final line of code is written. They also pay well under industry average and is reluctant to increase that as they believe you get paid too much for what you do. Finally, this company believes in micromanaging every thing you're paid to do. If you don't like that, do not work here.
Advice to Management
Management really needs to re-evaluate the amount of talent they've squandered over the years. It could have been a thriving company but the high staff turnover rate just demoralizes the rest of the employees. Management also really needs to improve their quality of life in the workplace by setting career paths straight. They could also work to better their overall product and implement the standard practices in the software development industry. Finally, they should re-assess the pay levels of everyone against the industry and offer more company benefits to the people who are still loyal to the company.
I worked at Educational Networks full-time (More than a year)
I worked for Educational Networks for 2 years. It’s a small intimate company where you can really make a difference in the work they do. The people are very smart and passionate about their work. It’s a relaxed and casual working environment. The company sponsors Friday lunches and sometimes we get to play ping pong and drink beers after a busy work week.
Because of the size of the company, there is not much in terms of growth.
