Great CEO, but culture is changingMarketing AssociateCurrent Employee, less than 1 year

Senior leaders seem to be largely disconnected with the day to day work of their own teams, and don't tend to seek advice Culture is changing Lack of diversity Becoming less flat Less autonomy Distrust in senior leaders Lack of transparency15Guild Education Response2y
I hope that with your belief in our CEO and all that you love and appreciate about Guild, you'll continue to be motivated you as we evolve and grow. Change is often challenging, but we believe it’s important. As we evolve our business, our culture needs to change with it to ensure the continued success of all Guild stakeholders: employees, members, learners, employer partners, and learning partners. I was intrigued by your perspective about new leadership. Our internal surveys tell us that our employees are motivated by our leadership team, although they recognize there is always room for improvement. In my experience, the feedback is taken very seriously. I’d love to sit with you and go through some of your specific concerns around culture and accountability in detail if that would be something you’d be comfortable with. I very much hope that we can clear the way for a better Guild experience for you! Thank you. - Alana Brandes, VP, People Business Partners

Member Support Tier 1 starts at $60k/year now & I just got hired in July so a bump to the pay despite being a new hire is amazing! Unlimited PTO, 40 hr floating holidays, 40 hr volunteer time, 8 sick days, paid week OFF during the week of 4th of July, $80/mo stipend for well being, $300 WFH stipend, paid business trips for IRL in Denver, paid business trips for company Christmas party, & lots of overtime opportunities! Looking forward to 5 weeks of sabbatical when I reach 5 years of service!
No 401k match & stock options don’t start until 1 year of service

- Great mission - Some super smart people - Great employer brands - Rapidly improving FP&A org. For a long time Guild lacked financial discipline and was operating without a professionalized FP&A org. They now have a solid CFO in place who has helped the business cut costs and operate more like a business. - A strong CMO that people like and respect who understands what it will take to effectively scale.
- Ineffective senior leadership - Sluggish product advancement especially when it comes to the technical underpinnings of the product. - A disconnect between the image the business projects and the actual culture. It is a low trust environment where dissenting opinions are at best ignored and often end up being career limiting. This starts at the top.24
