    I have been working at K12 full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great people locally
    Like to give raises and promotions to those within the company first before considering outsiders

    Opportunity for growth in a position, ability to learn various jobs' tasks; one is never bored

    The company provides the rapidly growing online education field to those who are low-income, high-risk, and/or seek alternatives to brick & mortar schools

    Fabulous, cheap but all-inclusive benefits and discounted offers

    Pre-tax options for public transit, parking, etc.

    Significantly smarter and more organized about policies than other virtual academies or online schools

    Free public charter schooling options, tuition-based schools, as well as purchasable course material for homeschooling

    IS NOT HOMESCHOOLING, but rather structured teaching to students who are more independent and can learn virtually

    Flex time; work hours you want to work within reasonable work day times

    Cons

    Horrible errors and miscommunications with HQ, specifically Enrollment (lack of documentation

    People may be qualified for their position but aren't great a the job duties K12 gives them; k12 has an issue with not firing people who do not fulfill their duties

    Related to above; some supervisors do not monitor their employees' computers to ensure work is getting done but have the ability to do so

    There is a lack of new hire training

    Lack of information to all employees about the general operations of our local school(s), especially if you are paid hourly; we would like to be in the know as well

    Advice to Management

    Monitor people more closely as they do not do their jobs sometimes. Ensure that everyone in the office helps out just as much as the rest. When training, make sure it is required and that it is completed by all individuals from that group rather than relying on the honor system.

    I have been working at K12 full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Hard-working, talented individuals. Great accomplishments and deliverables from a small IT team. Infrastructure VP and his directors working hard to affect positive change and build a solid technology platform and org foundation.

    Cons

    Extremely poor work/life balance (10 - 12+ hour workdays). New management expects staff to be always available. Org in constant state of transition with new management, new roles and responsibilites and very little manpower to get the job done. Many teams are overworked with little recognition from outside the department. New PMO org creating major overhead while adding little value. Many FTEs in planning and reporting roles and few in the positions that deliver actual value.

    Advice to Management

    Open your eyes to the teams that actually produce results and don't assume anyone in K12 IT over 6 months has no clue. The commitment of individuals and the support teams provide the technology capacity and superior systems availability required by students and employees. Open your wallets every now and then and say thank you with a meal or social event.
