    Senior Leadership Running Company Into Ground

    Jun 20, 2019 - CX Team in Irvine, CA
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook


    The people are the secret sauce of Illuminate. This company, especially the customer facing teams, are educators at heart and will go above and beyond for educators every single time. We have great tools and great people. They're also fun to be around and don't take themselves too seriously. This company has a heart and has the potential to make a major impact on student outcomes.


    New CEO has poor leadership skills and does not appear to understand the SAAS business. Senior leadership continues to grow while benefits and client facing employees' positions are eliminated to "cut costs." Recent layoffs have resulted in the immediate dismissal of key, long time employees who were integral to the success of the organization. This is a business and reductions are a necessary part of business sometimes but the way that the reductions were handled by the leadership team was dismissive of the employees and educators that we serve. Senior leadership team has neglected to rally the new organization around a common company culture or values which is one of the reasons morale is currently so low. It seems as if they see culture and values as compliance rather than the rock from which the organization must be built. It's time to replace the C-Suite and get Illuminate back on track to fulfill its promise to educators.

    Mega merger has not gone well-company being driven into ground

    Some good people left to do the work that used to be shared.


    Leadership sorely lacking. Layoffs every 6 months. Top down. No collaboration. Culture of fear. No real mission.
