    I have been working at Elevate K-12 full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Such a pleasure to work in a high growth tech company that is women focused. The culture, teamwork and collaboration in people here is of a high power that comes from the top. I have needed a lot of flexibility with my family to work from home or different needs and I was given all opportunities. The most important thing here is high performance with integrity. When and how it happens is secondary. I wish more companies can have this culture where women feel empowered.

    Cons

    Zilt. I love it here.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you!

    Pros

    I love that Elevate K-12 is a women focused company. A supportive, high energy environment is very prevalent in most people (who are women) that I have worked with.

    Cons

    I wish they were based in Omaha so I could work in an office.

    Advice to Management

    Please open an office in Omaha

    - work from home

    - fun to mentor/ inspire/ teach/ make friendships with students
    - you can work very few hours and stay employed
    - nice additional income to a full-time job
    - good job for a busy parent
    - kind and supportive management

    Cons

    - the pay is very low compared to other online teaching jobs
    - tutors do not get many hours overall

    I have been working at Elevate K-12 full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The employees at Elevate K-12 are so wonderful and supportive. Everyone works together towards a common goal and people are always willing to go out of their way to help others. It is exciting to be a part of a such a fast growing company. You can really feel the passion for education and student success at the root of everything we do. I am blown away everyday by how everyone works together so seamlessly. I could not be happier to have found this company.

    Fast paced work environment might not be for some people.

    Advice to Management

    More streamlined processes for everything we do.

    Pros

    - Focused on creating job opportunities for women, specially moms, which I absolutely love
    - Great open work environment
    - Very focused on changing how K-12 classrooms work
    - Great teaching for students who need focused instruction

    Cons

    Extremely high focus on performance and delivery and very fast paced. Feels very pressured at times. I have seen people not survive here due to lack of performance.

    Advice to Management

    Performance pressure can be structured differently. We all love it here.

    I have been working at Elevate K-12 full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have been working here for the last one year and Elevate K-12 is on a path that no one has ever been on. The company faces challenges as it scales and disrupts how we teach students but I have never seen it fall. People here have tremendous stoicism and the team-work and collaboration are remarkable. Performance on outcomes is very very important here,

    Cons

    Not sure if it’s a con but the company thinks 3-4 years ahead of its time. It puts pressure on team members to think and disrupt aggressively. Works for some doesn’t for others. Ask questions during interview phase about the hard working hours to ensure it is for you.

    Advice to Management

    I love it here. Each day is a new day of change
