I worked at Connections Academy full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Always room for advancement, managment is easy to get along with, decent salary, great work environment, semi-flexible hours.

Cons

Some departments are clique-ish, often times expectations and guidelines related to your work were changed at a moment's notice, it seemed that you were either overly-busy or had nothing to do (never anything in between), and since this is a temporary position many do not care if they accomplish anything at all and just sit around chatting all day.

    I worked at Connections Academy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fellow Teachers were amazing and were some of the most hard-working.

    Cons

    Management Horrific and completely dishonest. Cozied up to employees only to humiliate and undermine them. Lying is the standard in the GA office. STAY AWAY. Overworked and underpaid. Parents and students mislead and lied to as well. Disgusting work environment

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of them. They should not be there, maybe why turnover rate is so high. Employees are very unhappy.

    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at Connections Academy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Training is very thorough
    Ongoing training is provided
    Plenty of parking

    Cons

    Starting pay for positions is decreasing each year
    Work is extremely dissatisfying
    Senior management tends to be condescending and unsupportive
    Very inconsistent work environment - managers will contradict themselves constantly and employees will still get in trouble for not following the contradictory mess
    Applying to jobs within the company is a bureaucratic mess and only goes through if you're in one of the main cliques anyway.
    Some employees will never be fired though they have very poor performance scores and others will be fired on the spot for completely ridiculous reasons.

    Advice to Management

    Pay employees fair wages. The starting salary should not be decreasing each year. The health insurance plan is very expensive for employees and doesn't cover enough - improve the benefits offered. Stop condescending to employees.
