    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Ascend Learning full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Nice people. Very smart people. Lots of people who show up committed to their mission.

    Cons

    Lots of favoritism. There are the values they say they have, and then there are the values that actually exist. Some pockets within the company actually do live the values but it's very erratic. It's also a very top heavy organization. Lots of titles are handed out, which creates power dynamics.

    Advice to Management

    Live the values.
