    I have been working at Illuminate Education full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people are awesome and really, really care about our customers. Illuminators are motivated to make work easier for educators and education better for students.

    Cons

    Like any company going through internal changes, it comes with some level of anxiety and uncertainty. As long as we all to remember to focus on our mission and why we signed up for this work (to help educators and students), we'll be successful.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to our people and our customers.

    I have been working at Illuminate Education full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Health benefits are great...but not sure how long that will last.

    Cons

    New CEO seems set to dismantle the company bit by bit. Morale has never been so low.

    Advice to Management

    Have respect for employee knowledge and do some research on change management.

    Pros

    Each of us have a job to do here at Illuminate, but it is what we all do beyond our roles that makes this place extraordinary. We are encouraged to pursue our passions. Equity, house builds in Mexico, anti-bullying efforts, robotics...we are supported by our CEO to be socially responsible. And by doing so, each of us work that much harder at our jobs to make a difference both inside and outside of the classroom.

    Cons

    There are times when we do not have celery in the refrigerator and have to eat our humus plain. NO CONS!!!

    Advice to Management

    Continue to create opportunities for us to grow. Challenge us to stretch beyond our comfort zones.

    I have been working at Illuminate Education full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are genuinely kind people who work here. The majority are really trying to make great things happen. It's a great feeling to lock arms with folks and accomplish things that will really push us forward. There is a refreshing lack of red tape in getting things done.

    Cons

    As with many growing companies, there can always better process and sometimes we may passionately pursue the wrong things. But that's just a fact of life when people running fast.

    Pros

    The Culture and mutual love for each other makes this my second home. This is where people actually believe in each other, count on each other, help each other, trust each other, disagree constuctively with each other, carefront each other and most importantly love each other.

    Cons

    If I ever left I’d be sad.

    Advice to Management

    Maintain culture that made this our home.

    This is an amazing company to work for. The culture is second to none. I love the people I work with and I definitely believe in this company's values and mission.

    There's a lot of gray area, but not necessarily a bad thing. It is a growing company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!
