I worked at Building Educated Leaders for Life full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

The company structure is well organized. Contact with recruiters is systematic and staff is responsive. They also screened their hires well.

Cons

The company has a great model, but the program was a little unorganized. The program manager was responsible for way too many employees and was not available to really help any of us due to work overload. Although the program itself was well organized, the support wasn't there, which made things hectic

Advice to Management

There needs to be an appropriate number of program managers for smaller groups of staff.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The perception of the mission

    Cons

    The Cons far outweigh the Pro's which is unfortunate. I will repeat what others have said- Leadership is ineffective with little to no business acumen and outdated experience. The CEO is asleep at the wheel and has no clue what is going on. Turnover is high and there is no interest in retaining top performers, very old fashion way of thinking with old fashion way of leading/ managing. A organization of silos with no collaboration. The fact that the VP of HR only responded to one negative comment should tell the story.

    Advice to Management

    Value the people that work for you, you are not the smartest people in the room and could learn a little from your teams. roll your sleeves up and get dirty. It isn't all about your bonus..

    I worked at Building Educated Leaders for Life part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Cohesive unit, common goals, great work hours, cool staff

    Cons

    Teachers aren't paid enough for the amount of education that they are expected to come to the table with. No opportunities for decent raises based on longevity

    Advice to Management

    Many of the employees working for the program deserve raises, especially if they are returning teachers. This is how you retain the great staff instead of losing them to organizations that are just as successful and pay well.
