Doesn't Recommend
No opinion of CEO

Pros

Great people if they are at your same job level, very quiet office environment, nice building, products are better than anything on the market.

Cons

You have to work 12-14 hour days to meet their productivity expectations, they frown upon vacation times, some of the management treats employees very badly.

Advice to Management

Have appropriate people assign tasks and give better autonomy to the actual PMs for a project. Anyone higher up than that has an unrealistic view of the workload because they don't have to do it! Seriously 90-something page storyboard documents are ridiculous to ask to complete effectively in one day. Don't set people up to fail.

    I worked at K12 full-time

    Pros

    I loved my job as a virtual teacher. It is a joy to work from home and serve my students in this environment.

    Cons

    Doing the job of attendance secretary takes more time than it should. All of my supervisors were 10-20 years younger than me with less experience and qualifications.

    Advice to Management

    Make better use of experienced employees.
