Startup: if you identify a problem, you had better suggest a solution.

    Pros

    Sapling Learning staff provide great on-boarding training and are helpful whenever a question arises throughout the project.

    The science writing work is interesting and helped me, an adjunct professor, to be a better teacher by helping me think about and explain the subject matter from a different perspective.

    Their online study and teaching platforms are high quality and I am proud to have been a part of it.

    The hourly rate for contract employees is very reasonable for this type of work.

    Cons

    The only downside for me was that the project was completed and my work for Sapling ended!

    Pros

    The now half-empty office is located in Downtown Austin.

    Cons

    In the past year, layoffs or people leaving sped up at an insane rate. Every week at least one person leaves for a better job, which is any other job, or is laid off. Entire groups get laid off without warning. Upper management, in particular the CEO of Macmillan Learning, give uplifting messages filled with corporate-speak that no one believes because everyone is in fear of losing their jobs.

    Anyone who has a better opportunity left or has an escape plan.

    Advice to Management

    The CEO of Macmillan Learning knows exactly what he is doing.
