I have been working at Compass Knowledge as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

If you have the skills, this does not require heavy lifting. On occasion, it's informative and interesting.

Cons

The nature of the work is not consistant. It ebbs and flows with the demands of the various schools posting online courses. And, as a contractor, I have no real communication with the course developers. I have lots to offer by way of years of editorial experience, but I get the sense there is little desire to really tackle the details.

Advice to Management

As a full-time, in-house QA specialist, I could form relationships with the developers and communicate the need to be exact in the details. Applying Associated Press style to the courses, rather than the un-observed academic styles would create a far more user-friendly course environment.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The views from the Elk Grove Village office can be very nice.

    Cons

    It is unfortunate the enrollment division is run in such a subprofessional manner. People, including management, are very disruptive and can be quite rude to each other.

    Advice to Management

    I heard you advise many times to "get back to basics" during my short tenure there. May I respectfully suggest you seek basic leadership training and practice same on daily basis to serve as role models in your workplace? Demonstrating professionalism and showing professional respect for your fellow employees will make for a workplace with a more professional atmosphere.
