    I worked at NWEA full-time

    Pros

    There are some great people - in pockets of the organization Benefits are amazing

    Cons

    Change is not a part of their vocabulary The good 'ol boys club runs rampant Don't even think about being innovative Staff make a lot of assumptions and base everything off of those - especially regarding other staff They are trying to take on too many things without the appropriate staff Company values are thrown in your face like they mean something - when the leaders of this org don't live by anything unless... it moves them closer to the top. HR does not take issues seriously - constant inappropriate behavior ignored

    Advice to Management

    Stick to what you do best If you want to add new products, be sure you listen to those with experience in that area Quit allowing a few leaders in the org to run the entire org/hold it hostage Live by your values

    I have been working at NWEA full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Amazing benefits! 6 week PTO, 403b employer contributions, great health benefits.

    Cons

    Too political, sometimes too much collaboration and takes long time to make decisions and get things done.
