I've been working here for years, and this used to be a great place to work. It was fun, exciting, and it felt like somewhere you could grow. I've worn a few hats since I've been here, and this job has turned into a mindless, scripted, soul-sucking, suffocating, micro-managed, overworked role. Sales goals have been made absolutely impossible to attain, leaving you without your bonus, and the measly hourly pay. Metrics are observed under a microscope, and consultants are constantly hounded over every possible one. There is constant change to the sales process with blatant disregard to how it will affect anyone or anything but the bottom dollar, making this already challenging job, even more difficult, as you're expected to adapt and thrive with these constant changes, or get bullied and booted out. People are overworked, over time is begged for, enforced. This job used to feel like you were really helping families, students- but now everything is a robotic cash grab.

A LOT of people were laid off right before the holidays last year, with no warning or reason (this is actually the second time this has happened). And a week later we were bragging about a big contract that was obtained with a school district (a contract that was obtained in part, by the people that were just laid off). There have been a lot of decisions and changes made in the last few months that show how greedy and eager they are to please the share holders, changes that are driving a lot of tutors, employees, and clients to get angry and leave. I have personally been bullied, gaslit, chastised, and taken advantage of in my time here, all while being overworked, and underpaid. The issues mentioned just brush the surface of the rapidly growing problem of a work environment and company that VT has turned out to be.Continue reading
