Pros

Product - One of the top three LMSs in the corporate eLearning space
Marketing - Great , well-oiled machine, in fact, a little too good
People - Make the company what it is, especially some relatively recent additions to Finance and Product Marketing
Future Stock Options - Recent development for existing employees. Though management needed to do something to appease folks as the job market slowly improves

Cons

Pay - Bad for most...as many are just making enough to pay bills, if that. Some people there have second jobs/businesses on the side.

Lack of training/process efficiency - Company definately doesn't "eat their own caviar." If one doesn't make friends and allies at this place, they will sink.

Executive Leadership - certain ones are 'spastic' while others won't even acknowledge the presense of employees who bust their butts for the place and them. Their extreme cheapness also gives the impression that there is a cash flow issue.

Morale - Windowless, cave-like HQ facility (used to belong to Diamonds.com) complete with the smell of mold (well, South Florida!). No company-wide events, parties, teambuilding whatsover.

Turnover........

Advice to Management

1). Make candidates aware of what type of place LDC historically (process-challenged) is and the transformation it is going through today prior to hiring them as it will help curb the common turnover.
2). Make changes on the EC to ensure a successful IPO or Acquistion

    Pros

    Relationship with the other programmers is good and most days you are left alone to write code. They usually give you lots of responsibility to design things the way you want, but have some good standards for development to follow.

    Cons

    Its a small company, so when things get rough people start getting cut. Upper management isn't around much and doesn't really seem to care much either which makes morale even worse. The benefits are very poor.

    Advice to Management

    Expectations could be more clear.


  2. "Great place to work, passionate employees, reactive to the industry, clients & economy"

    Pros

    Learn.com is always changing, growing, and responding to their client's needs. Learn.com is innovative in coming up with employee incentives, new offerings, client recognition programs, etc. They also encourage collaboration and the sharing of best practices amongst their clients in many ways to leverage the knowledge that their clients are gaining in using the products.

    Cons

    "Always changing"? Of course, isn't that every company that is successful now days? Occasionally, every nimble ship, makes a slight turn in the wrong direction, but being nimble & adaptable, they are able to quickly respond to client & employee feedback to right any wrongs.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure all departments understand our mission & purpose. Keep communicating with the employees. Keep hiring great folks!
