I worked at Education Elements as a contractor

Pros

The people are fantastic - many of them ex-teachers with patience, grace, and a burning desire to improve American education offerings. Lots of women in senior positions who offer support and mentoring like I've never seen before.

Cons

As a start-up they are still working out some processes, but are growing rapidly, so that is to be expected.

Advice to Management

Keep on smiling and hiring smart, happy people.

    Pros

    - Surrounded by great people/ great culture
    - Impactful mission

    Pros

    -Education Elements has a great mission, working hard to help clients improve learning experiences and outcomes for all students.

    -Management is open to feedback, and constantly evolving as a result. Management tries hard to be honest and transparent about changes and company outlook.

    -There is lots of opportunity for growth. Be ready to grow!

    -Lots of very intelligent hardworking people.

    Cons

    -Five years in, but still has the pains of a typical startup. There currently exists a lack of structure in many areas. While there is a desire to improve this, there isn't really a clear path to get there.

    -Very long hours. Everyone is expected to be a salesperson all of the time. Services roles are not ideal for someone who is not interested in upselling or "schmoozing" with clients as this is expected of everyone. This is unfortunate as it can push away those who might be of great service otherwise.

    Advice to Management

    -Continue to be transparent and responsive to employee feedback.
    -Consider bringing in outside services, e.g. consulting, professional development or otherwise, to provide guidance on areas such as company structures and professional development for employees.
    -Make professional growth of employees a priority by providing learning opportunities beyond shadowing client visits. This will help to build more confidence and capacity internally.
