    Pros

    job security, fun people to work with for the most part

    Cons

    no advancement at branch locations, pay is based on merit, not on job performance. A substandard peer doesn't have to work hard and can still receive more than you.

    Pros

    * The entire company is mission-driven and truly cares about impacting children's literacy and cultivating a love of learning * Strong, positive brand association among teachers and parents * There is a lot of opportunity to contribute your ideas to any project, but the processes for taking a project to market are very unclear * Great opportunities for growth and advancement, if you are okay with dealing with ambiguity and taking on more work

    Cons

    * Very, very, very little blue-sky innovation. * Processes, systems, and technologies are quite out of date * The company is not structured for growth. Many functional teams are siloed in separate business-units, and very few individuals/teams have a goal-oriented mindset * Data-driven decision-making is often talked about, but rarely practiced. Data teams are super smart and helpful, but are not embedded functionally, so impact is always limited. * There is a general misunderstanding of underlying growth drivers for the business units and the enterprise, often starting at top-level management.
