    I worked at Educational Testing Service full-time

    Pros

    Extremely nice people work here. Although they have issues like any company, they value their people and communicate with employees quite well.

    Cons

    Contractors, like myself, don't get the information we need to understand the Why of things. Also, instead of roles, we are called contigent workers, which doesn't help to understand what someone does.

    Advice to Management

    Complete a full business architecture review and designl. Build other architectures such as IT and Data based on the business architecture.

    I have been working at Educational Testing Service part-time

    Pros

    Work from Home
    As a scoring leader it's great!

    Cons

    Never given enough hours. Salary was actually cut by $3 an hour. Canceled shifts last minute really makes it hard to depend on it. As a scoring leader - just not a ton of hours.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Don't cut their hours. Get on the ball....

    I worked at Educational Testing Service full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Short distance from home. Challenging but manageable deadline. Allows working from home.

    Cons

    Sometimes they can be disorganized and poor in communications especially from top management. Competing priorities among internal divisions cause lot of confusion. Many IT units have terrible work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management needs to be more organized and communicate better.
