    Company doesn't have direction

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    You will work with some really smart, kind people that truly care about educating students.

    Cons

    Too many management layers. Directors and VPS make a lot of money but those that are actually doing the work are not fairly compensated. Wants to be an edtech company without actually investing in the Tech. Company doesn't have a solid direction. They have had many many rounds of layoffs the last few years, it is their go-to to please the investors.

    Good if you’re looking for a stepping stone

    Oct 14, 2020 - Project Manager 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Some really great, talented, collaborative people.

    Cons

    Constant restructuring and change. I had over four different managers / directors during my two years with the company. It’s difficult to build relationships within your teams and you often feel isolated and undervalued / underutilized. Specific skills and talents aren’t valued as well.
