I worked at Learning Resources as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Great program. They really give a lot to the interns, including projects to work out, outings into the city, free lunch & learns once a week. The people are very friendly.

Cons

The commute to Vernon Hills, whether from another Chicago suburb or from the city, can be a bit annoying. Also the office is the typical cubicle setup, so not super exciting.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The employees are have a common bond to get along and communicate, and customers are always treated with respect. My manager was very respectful of her staff, openly respected better processes, and department engagement.

    Cons

    Lack of communication from senior management to middle and lower level staff. Unfortunately, they laid employees off without prior notice before the holiday. Operationally there was no ground procedures, it was more of create as you go along. How can a department function without policies and procedures. My overall opino was the more you sucked up to key players, the better off you were. Nothing was based off hard work and time given to the firm.

    Advice to Management

    Think of your staff more! Bring Etienne back!

    Pros

    The employees overall are a very motivated and caring group of people with the best interest of the end users (children!) in mind. Good work-life balance.

    Cons

    Currently many changes taking place with the recent letting go of the CEO. There is much speculation on the impact to individual jobs or departments.

    Advice to Management

    Be sure to keep open communication so that employees don't have to operate in fear.
