Pros

Flexible with remote employees. A company with a purpose, and constant reminders that you are helping those in need of a better education.

Advice to Management

After a recent reorganization, the management team still has a lot of work to do in regards to making sure LOBs are not working in silos and need to work on creating a better corporate culture.
