    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Illuminate Education full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The people are welcoming, fun, and open to change. The culture is collaborative, compassionate, supportive, and respectful. I haven't observed or experienced any micromanaging, everyone is treated like an adult, and the work/life balance and flexibility here is awesome. Benefits package is very good as well - I feel like taking care of employees was definitely considered when putting it together. The variety of... snacks in the HQ break room is pretty impressive.

    Cons

    The organization is going through a lot of change, and there are some growing pains while adapting to function like larger company. Adopting new processes, accountability across teams, and establishing better lines of communications across departments and teams is a little rough right now. Unfortunately with the mergers there have been some recent re-structuring, which caused layoffs and issues with team morale.

    Advice to Management

    Better alignment and clearer decision making from management and leadership is needed. Right now it seems like leadership is only reacting to change, not planning for it. Leadership should sit down and proactively think about the enterprise strategic direction of the mergers, figure out a way to communicate that to the rest of the organization, and establish projects to work in that direction.
