Negative Outlook

I worked at Catapult Learning full-time

Pros

Nothing. This job transformed me from a normally happy and upbeat person to a miserable, underpaid and underutilized drone. Staff were underapreciated, and looked over for promotions and raises. Very political company; hired upper management by status and connections, not by experience and education, and then expected other employees to pick up the slack.

Cons

First of all, for a company that is making huge profits, full-time employees had to pay an arm and a leg for terrible benefits. Then, they cut health benefits for all teachers, which is downright despicable. The upper management is completely out of touch with the employees that are actually doing the work. The salary differences are atrocious; when in fact the lower and entry level employees are doing the brunt of the work. I actually heard a member of the senior management team ask an entry level employee to complete something for him, complaining that he just didn't have enough free time that day. Then, he took complete credit for the assignment. Employee relationships were farced, and I have never met a group of people as unhappy as Catapult employees. It was quite depressing.

Advice to Management

Stop thinking about profits before your employees- sooner or later the economy will get better and you won't be able to bank on teachers needing a job so desperately that they resort to your company. Offer them benefits like any profitable large business would.
