    I worked at Engrade as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great work environment, lunch provided every day, access to other snacks, great location, meaningful work, good pay, everyone feels welcome, good communication across all teams.

    Cons

    Disorganized, lots of confusion during onboarding, people working remotely made it difficult to communicate in a timely manner.

    Advice to Management

    Centralize people more, maintain environment, stabilize onboarding process for new hires, be sure to maintain the same laid back, yet efficient environment to keep moral up.

    I worked at Engrade full-time

    Pros

    Nice and fun people in general!
    Smart people

    Cons

    New bureaucracy due to becoming a part of a larger global corporation (McGraw-Hill)
    It's tough business being an ed-tech company

    Advice to Management

    Align strategy better from the top, so that it is easier for the middle managers to do their job and execute.

    Pros

    We have the most comprehensive suite of software solutions in the markets we work/sell. The features and benefits are second to none and provide various levels of value to clients in our markets.

    Cons

    There is little or no strategic vision or sales strategies in which we sell. The marketing support materials are limited (or non existent). The sales goal objectives are consistently not-realistic.

    Advice to Management

    You have high level talent that you are going to lose if you do not address the vision, sales goal and marketing issues of your organization.
