Disapproves of CEO

I worked at DreamBox Learning as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Managers don't notice when you take a two hour lunch break

Cons

Poor training, once hired you're thrown to the dogs.. Very demoralizing and humiliating because nobody else in the company looks out for one another. Everyone talks so much behind everyone's back.
Met only one person who sees the company like me. Only legit person employed there.

Advice to Management

Sell the business, and don't become managers again..

    I have been working at DreamBox Learning full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It is a pleasure to work someplace where the product you serve really works. DreamBox is "Best of Breed" when it comes to helping students succeed in math. The team with whom I work is fun and positive. We know how to work hard and yet how to laugh and enjoy the day, too. The managment has always been supportive of me and when I have asked for support from other departments, I have always received it. We are growing quickly and I see even more exciting things happening on the horizon for this company.

    Cons

    As with any start up company, there have been lots of changes. I think the targeted growth pattern may be very ambitious. Everyone needs to feel successful and sometimes that takes time, especially in the education arena.

    Advice to Management

    Be consistent and positive.

    Pros

    The amazing blended of brains at this company allows for every single employee to learn something new every single day. The sales team learns from development, the CEO is always jumping in on idea collaboration and is super approachable, and the client success and marketing teams want to be as hands on as possible. This truly feels like a family where everyone has the same goal, and everyone is willing and happy to go the extra mile to get there. Fantastic product that is going to rock the education software industry!

    Cons

    Sales team goals are very high, and expectations to produce are right there with them. Yearly quotas are some of the largest numbers I have seen in general across the industry. However, training is there and sales management is very accessible. Culture is still forming, so everyone brings new flavor to the team and new ideas of what they would like to see happening each day.

    Advice to Management

    Lead by example and share those examples much more openly about what/how/why something works, be specific. Be consistent with messaging, even if are company is transitioning and evolving.
