    How it started...how it changed

    Apr 1, 2022 - Customer Success Manager (CSM) in Irvine, CA

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Started with strong family-like feel, which sounds cliche or contrived, but was actually amazing. People supported each other, championed for each other, we vented together, and met up outside of work for fun. Those relationships translated into more effective meetings, better outcomes for customers, innovation on the product side, and was evident to anyone who worked with us.

    Cons

    But as the company grew rapidly, those relationships frayed and weren't valued. What is wild is that many of us still stay connected, though spread across tech and edtech and CX orgs, in other ways. We share what we are learning, share resources and best practices, gossip a little, mourn those we have lost. Never in my professional career have I ever experienced this.

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Everyone in the company that I've met so far has been so kind and welcoming. The work life balance is evident and the onboarding/training has been in depth. You are paid 70/hr for training districts which is a super fair pay rate.

    Cons

    Since you are a part-time employee, you are not offered benefits, or 401K options. You are also paid through a staffing agency.

    Largest US data security breach ever

    Pros

    There are no positives to working here

    Cons

    Illuminate was just accused of being involved in the largest data security breach ever in the US in New York. Programs are buggy, to say the least. Don’t believe me- just search for the story on Google. This company is imploding on itself.
