Pros

Creative, and intelligent coworkers; growing company; clean and modern work environment; great location; flexible work location and somewhat flexible hours for most employees

Cons

Frequently an unreasonable number of working hours expected to make difficult deadlines; compensation and increases are not competitive; Health insurance cost continuously rising with diminished coverage; lack of recognition for many key employees; disrespectful and incompetent HR department; lack of critical communication between departments; slim probability of advancement for many employees

Advice to Management

I would suggest adjusting pay scales and increase incentives for more of the employees that are exceptional at creating and improving the k12 products. I would also suggest improving the lines of communication to tap some of the great business and design ideas that are not being heard.

    I have been working at K12 full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some flexibility with work times.

    Cons

    This company is driven by profits vs providing a solid education to students. They are actively marketing to students who should not be schooled at home. Many students make little progress and have no learning coach supervision. Teachers are poorly paid yet the CEO doubled his salary last year. It is sinful! A teacher earns in the 30,000 range even with many years experience.

    Advice to Management

    Less greed with lead to more success for all!
