    I have been working at Franklin Covey full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people, great content, flexible schedule, great training

    Cons

    Confusing purpose and focus during transition of new product delivery. Late on technology. Marketing to find new company's and new business development is poor.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lose sight of the people... if the goals are not being hit by the majority of the people, it's a company problem, not a people proble.

    Pros

    Supportive environment, family oriented, fun atmosphere, free learning courses when available, management's door was always open.

    At the time there wasn't a lot of upward mobility

    Keep listening to employees and nurturing their creativity

    I have been working at Franklin Covey full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Company's mission. What we do is impactful, and we really do deliver immense value to our clients. Decent amount of flexibility and autonomy in my role. For the most part, the people I work with are wonderful...I've worked on great teams and have never had a bad boss.

    Cons

    The CEO. Our CEO is a good and kind man, but is out of touch with front line employees and does little to nothing to promote a healthy culture--despite the fact that our clients pay us thousands of dollars to do just that. I am continually shocked at the level of micromanagement from the CEO...for a company of our size it is astonishing and embarrassing that even entry-level positions have to be approved (and sometimes interviewed) by the CEO. His leadership style is largely a dictatorship and is entirely out of step with the content and principles FranklinCovey espouses. FranklinCovey should be regularly ranked as a "Best Place to Work" considering it's mission and content.

    Additionally, FranklinCovey is behind the times in terms of social media and marketing, and our CMO has defiantly resisted embracing those things. Why don't we have the top-ranked leadership podcast (or any regular ongoing podcast for that matter)? Why don't we have any kind of social media presence? Why don't we have a deliberate strategy for marketing to millennials?

    No company is perfect, and a company that claims to be the expert on leadership is always going to fall short of what people expect. But there are some serious blind spots at FranklinCovey.

    Advice to Management

    We have too much "group-think" among management. Bring in outside voices. And put Sean Covey or Shawn Moon back in charge--they are the most capable, inspiring leaders in the company.

    Pros

    Training is phenomenal and employees get great experience and knowledge.

    Cons

    There are so many projects and sometimes it is hard to manage and juggle all.

    Advice to Management

    Urgencies are typical in a public company. Hopefully, the quarter end rush will ease.

    Pros

    I worked there for 24 years. Loved the people I worked with and the content.

    Cons

    Felt that years and dedication didn't matter to them. About the bottom line.

    Advice to Management

    If you have an employee who has demonstrated loyalty - always consider before eliminating position.

    Pros

    Amazing leadership; very visionary company. A lot of personal development and coaching. Keep it up leadership team!

    Cons

    Outside Sales is not for everyone. Depending on your territory you have to be prepared to start from scratch although there is a lot of help from leadership and marketing to create warm leads.
