I have been working at Knowledge Universe full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

I believed in creating a world of learners.

The curriculum that is offered is of a very high standard, and they provide great child care benefits to employees.

Cons

Unfortunately, the industry isn't well regarded for paying well.

The company has seen significant leadership changes over the last 5 years.

Leadership often focuses on the bottom line which leads to short term decisions with long term repercussions.

Advice to Management

Please focus on the long term health of the business rather than making short sighted decisions to inflate the bottom line.

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Individual departments tend to do very well with the information they are given. Teams have the drive and talent to believe in the mission and make it a priority. This is a very friendly company with great coworkers.

    Cons

    A serious lack of communication and effective planning. This runs through most of the company leading to mismanaged work and projects. Leadership at the executive level seems blind to the cultural problems that if corrected could lead to success. Raises are non existent and recognition follows popularity and not serious contribution.

    Advice to Management

    I have seen people held accountable in all tiers when it comes to failing of the largest brand. I do believe most to be necessary but the real change needs to occur with how the LOBs are run. Cutting your way to prosperity only works for a short period of time.
