    Pros

    As a small tech company in Portland, there's a lively start-up feel, with many experimental situations and projects. Management trusts their teams to problem solve, manage time, and produce. The culture is a priority, and its stakeholders strive to be inclusive and leverage employee strengths. Growth opportunities are increasing, though given the companies size, are not always predictable. The product's value proposition...

    Cons

    Though many improvements are happening, it can often feel unclear if the product is headed in the best direction that will prolong commitment from our customers and keep users engaged. As an organization, work is not always allocated in the most intuitive way. Executives do rely heavily on management feedback, versus learning from individual contributors most directly involved in the work. This makes the manager to direct...

    Advice to Management

    Stay mindful of Execs delegating complex requests that require detailed feedback from individual contributors without a completed feedback loop of either a plan of action or a proactive solution. Ensure managers have time to manage. Teams like to feel like their managers have time to invest in them as individuals. Keep up the transparency with the state of the product, industry, and vision to keep employees engaged...

    I have been working at Learning.com full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The first thing that attracted me to Learning.com was their mission. With the primary objectives being to improve the lives of teachers and to equip K-8 students with technology skills, I was eager for the opportunity to contribute. At my first interview, I was struck by the office’s fun energy and orientation. Over time, I’ve experienced firsthand Learning.com’s creative, playful, collaborative, and supportive culture....

    Cons

    In my department, I have a sense that necessary change is not always acted on in a timely fashion. Even when change does take place, often the internal conversation focuses on how long it's taken for this change to occur. I think this produces a negative atmosphere for the team. Instead of feeling like we're keeping up with competitors, making decisions intentionally and acting on them in a timely fashion, there's...

    Pros

    I’ve worked at LCOM for about 1 1/2 years and have really enjoyed my time so far. The company offers a product that helps shape today’s young students. Recently there has been talk about company vision and things seem to be on the rise. 2018 was a rough year for the business, but leadership has been open and are making necessary product changes. (There is still more to do with EasyTexch, but it’s a start) Benefits...
