    Pros

    The product is teacher and student friendly along with being award-winning with good reason. They work with up and coming authors, are forward-thinking and usually ahead of the market on what teachers and classrooms need.

    Cons

    Lack of communication and politics made it tough to get important work done in a timely manner. Senior executives are very devoted to the great product but need to step up the business side of the company. They definitely bring in talented people especially many experienced in their careers, but underutilize what they can offer.

    Advice to Management

    With the great materials created by the company the next step to growth would be to work on the lack of business expertise. Really show people what they can do to be a value add to the company and how they can advance their own careers.

    Pros

    Great base salary, great commission opportunities and good benefits. The products are amazing and everyone want to sell what they believe in. It is a family owned business and they posses a true love for education. They compensate fairly and their expectations are fair.

    Cons

    While some management truly does care, others do not. It apparently does not matter whether you exceed your goals or not, they can turn on you. They request too much paperwork and sales force info to be able to complete your job properly.

    Advice to Management

    keep those folks that are exceeding their goals and get rid of the ones that have not made it in over 3 years. Just because someone is sitting at home posting in their jammies everyday on sales-force doesn't mean they are out working near as hard as those not entering into sales-force, but exceeding goals.
