    Pros

Hard work and talent are routinely rewarded, and leadership takes every employee's suggestions and concerns seriously. Very interesting and dynamic workplace, lots of opportunities for travel, and awesome coworkers.

    International offices across several time zones require occasional early morning / evening meetings and calls.

    I have been working at InGenius Prep full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexibility if written in your contract, growing company, multinational, learn mutiple skills, team-oriented, pet friendly, education focused, kind people, (opportunities to travel to Asia-four other offices with more on the way)

    Cons

    Note: this company is not a startup. The leadership use “startup” as an excuse to offer poor compensation and uncomfortable working conditions. There are over 80 full-time employees — Unorganized, poor communication from and between leadership, micromanagerial while promising flexibility, profit-driven (unwilling to pay for cleaning services), subpar compensation, no benefits, preferential treatment (some employees get to take more than two weeks off, take their children and partners on business trips & stay in company lodging, work schedule flexibility if leadership likes you), expected to work an average of 12-16 hours a day in multiple zones earning less than six figures a year without bonus and/or benefits, only hire women for education positions, all employees are heterosexual, they promise a lot and deliver very little, people are kind but underpaid, overwhelemed, and unhappy

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with your employees and the company at large, offer group trainings, don’t assume without asking, don’t manage your other investments/businesses in the office

    A very great team to work with, although we are working in different locations around the globe, we still feel very connected with each other - everyone is reachable, responsive and super nice.
