I have been working at eGenio Education Solutions full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Great company - exciting company making a difference in k-12 education. The company has successfully transitioned from start up to early stage - we're adding people to our team. If you're looking for a great place to work with opportunities for growth, personally and professionally, eGenio is for you.

Cons

Small team but growing. Early stage company.

Advice to Management

Great rid of those who "can't cut it" faster! we had a few people on the team in the early days who blamed every problem and delay on everyone else and never took responsibility themselves! Thankfully they are no longer with the company!

    Pros

    The only positive thing that I took out of my experience at eGenio was meeting some of the other employees. Some very kind and talented people, however they are not used to their full potential. The management takes a "my way or the highway" approach killing off a lot of good employee input while they continue to make bad decisions and disappoint prospective customers, who would choose another product or lose interest completely.

    Cons

    Was lead to believe in the begining that this company would do something big, however due to very poor leadership, terrible decision making, missed deadlines and wasted budget eGenio continues to be a "start up" 4 years later, with nothing to show for it. Everything about eGenio is smoke and mirrors, it all for show with no real substance. Even with good employees it is nearly impossible to develop/program/market/sell a product that doesn't exist.

    The other "5 star" reviews are clearly fabricated and take on the culture of eGenio, where they cover bullet holes with band-aids and sugar coat everything. Not accurate whatsoever.

    Would not reccommend this company to anyone.

    Advice to Management

    Take a long hard look at your situation, your "start-up" of 4 years still has not made much progress, might be time to stop wasting other people's time and money. Oh and stop claiming that "several thousand" students nationwide are using your product, that is a bold faced lie.

    I worked at eGenio Education Solutions full-time

    Pros

    Nothing was positive with eGenio

    Cons

    Continued product launch delays, unrealistic expectations, very poor leadership. Was told on multiple occassions that the product was "two weeks" away and once the two weeks came still no product. In three years the product has no market share and lacks any competitive advantage. The education market is flooded with LMS type products and the eGenio platform has no WOW factor.

    Advice to Management

    Have realistic expectations, know your market, check your ego at the door

    It's unfortunate that team members who don't fit in, who cant take responsibility for their own actions and lack of results, who are no longer with the company, choose to post these types of negative ... More
