    "The company is just ridiculous. They treat the employees almost as badly as they treat the customers."

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Rosetta Stone full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Most of the employees are great; as in, they're nice people, not necessarily the most competent
    -Decent pay/benefits
    -Casual work environment
    -Good parties

    Cons

    -Quick, irrational decisions that affect the customers and customer-facing teams, with little to no forewarning or helpful advice on accommodating the decisions made and resulting consequences (2 Studio session cap = Worst idea ever, way to go)
    -Constantly being forced to learn and abandon new process/procedures that are not even given enough time to show any positive/negative effect, much less validate the change in the first place
    -Management teams with members who do not have a college degree, nor any specific skill set to justify the position of authority
    -Outsourcing to India and having the rest of the company suffer for the mistakes and irritated customers that begin there

    Advice to Management

    Try legitimately listening to the customers AND the employees and actually do something to let them know that they are being acknowledged and respected.

    I worked at Rosetta Stone full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great product with lots of potential in the market. The platform is moving all online, which is a good move. No more hard product. Nice colleagues.

    Cons

    Unclear direction and focus, poor management, ridiculous sales model, major lack of learning and development of employees. All about the bottom line.
