    I have been working at IXL Learning full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Fantastic product loved by educators across the world. Really feel like you're making a difference working for this company.
    -Great starting salary and benefits.
    -Great work/life balance.
    -Great co-workers.
    -Open door management. Really feel like I can approach management with my questions and concerns.

    Cons

    -Training is a little unguided owing to the company's rapid expansion; my first couple of weeks saw a lot of me just left to my own devices surfing the web.

    Advice to Management

    -Really hammer out a training schedule to eliminate wasted time. I felt a little guilty being paid this much only to be left to my own devices for a couple of weeks.

    Pros

    - Lots of new features, challenges, innovations. Definitely no sense of stagnancy or complacency for either the products or the future of the company itself.

    - Diverse and friendly company culture, everyone is extremely welcoming and happy to chat while grabbing a cup of coffee or answer work related questions.

    - Good work/life balance. Everyone takes pride in their work, but there is no pressure to work insane hours.

    - Great managers who care both personally and professionally. Really.

    - Many opportunities for more responsibility.

    Cons

    If you living in San Francisco, the commute can be tedious.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the transparency and the lines of communication. I have seen huge amounts of improvement in this aspect in recent months, so its very encouraging to see a company that is so responsive to employee feedback.

    Pros

    This company loves creativity. Sky is the limit here. As the company continues to grow there is always room for employees' suggestions. Lots of helpful trainings for new content areas and products. Flex work schedule. Ability to work from home. Unlimited vacation days! Room for growth within the company. Friendly coworkers!

    Cons

    Having an office on the west coast and on the east coast constantly having to work around the time zones. Growing pains ...lots of trial and error until best practices have been found. Pay is competitive but wish there were more opportunities for reviews or promotions rather than just once a year.
