    Pros

    - Free food (weekly Amazon Fresh deliveries)
    - Lunch outings once a month
    - Very chilled atmosphere (ping pong table, XBOX 360, etc)
    - Great view/location
    - Ample space
    - Friendly staff
    - Great compensation package

    Cons

    - Poor management
    This really was my only complaint, and yet it's a significant one. My supervisor was a HORRIBLE instructor (impatient, rushed thru instructions, etc) and despite him telling me he would let me know how I was doing, he didn't. I even asked both him AND the president if they could let me know at least 2 weeks in advance of the contract end date, if they saw me unfit to continue working there.

    At my review/firing, when I asked my supervisor why he didn't tell me all this stuff I did wrong BEFOREHAND, he got upset & loud and told me that they needed someone who could complete tasks without asking too many questions.

    When I told the president I thought this was unfair treatment, he replied that he didn't know my supervisor was going to have my review when he (the president) was out of town. Really? You didn't know this, despite you being the PRESIDENT of the company???

    Only after I told the president I thought I received unfair treatment, did he give me a very generous compensation package (2 weeks worth of pay). Which was very generous, but odd that he did not mention/offer it until I contacted him and voiced my concerns several days after I was fired.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication between employer & employee.
    Respect for the employee/contractor to let them know at least 2 weeks in advance whether they will be kept on.

    I agree with the frustration of this reviewer, because we did a very poor job of managing his stint with us. We had a young employee manage the reviewer (a contractor). We did not provide timely ... More

    I have been working at SR Education Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Very flexible hours
    - Great benefits (retirement fund, stock, profit shares)
    - Great learning experience (especially for recent grads)
    - Challenging (employer really expects you to think)
    - Room for growth (if you express a desire to move up, the CEO will work hard to find a way to make this happen)
    - Company consistently striving to be better

    Cons

    - Work can be repetitive
    - You can get pigeonholed in a role if you allow it

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that you are consistently challenging your employees.
