    Pros

    * Amazing company culture. Illuminate has managed to maintain the important aspects of its culture through recent periods of significant growth and change. * Management structure exists, but employees do not feel overly-monitored or babysat * Strong "Team" atmosphere still prevails and employees truly care about helping each other.

    Cons

    (July 2018) - Still some growing pains with putting in new processes and transitioning from a small company/start-up mindset to a large company/industry-leader mindset.

    Advice to Management

    Stick with new processes in the face of resistance (whether it is internal or external). To grow, we must change, and we must stick with our adjustments long-term to realize their benefits.

    Pros

    most of the pros are long gone since the new ceo got a hold of this company. she is quickly eroding all reasons to work here.

    Cons

    since july '18 almost everything has be down hill. It's very hard not to conclude that the new ceo and her senior leadership (which has grown out of control) are trying to sink all these merged companies. the most recent "good" reviews have to be fake as the last 2 weeks the company has been hit with turmoil and layoffs. while layoffs can be understood for a vc company that's trying to get a return, the backward... thinking has been insane. the ceo likes to say they do it for the kids and for the future but the most recent on goings at this company proves that is the furthest thing from the truth. a simple example is that the whole data science team (2 members but still) was let go... yeah, why does an education data visualization company need machine learning developers? she also took the fantastic culture and values that made this a great place to work and ripped those out in the short time she's been here. I've work for a couple of large companies and some were very corporate... this company moved from and open fun loving place with lots of benefits to someplace I wouldn't advise anyone to apply at.
