    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Ascend Learning full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Vacation policy. If you're ever able to use it. Usually overworked, underbudgeted and understaffed if you're not part of the ATI team.

    Cons

    Leadership from GM up. Lack of respect for talent. Complete incompetence when it comes to decision making. Toxic environment to work in. Egos abound.

    Advice to Management

    Start over with leadership on the JBL side. Poor decision making and lack of funding is killing some great businesses.
