    I worked at K12 full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent co-workers and administrators. Work from home.

    Cons

    Pay is less than a traditional school setting. However, the stress level was less and the safety concerns of a classroom were non-existent.

    Pros

    Good culture and mission! They believe in helping children with an alternative education to learning. Always come up with fun employee activities.

    Tremendous growth almost too much and was in danger of losing track of true mission.

    I have been working at K12 full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Work Life Balance
    Work From Home
    Computer supplied
    Company paid landline for home office
    Mileage reimbursement for travel
    Minimal travel required

    Cons

    State testing is a pain. You need to plan an entire week (at least) out of office for that.
    We have about 4-6 in person PD's which are all day and often half the day is just socializing. I understand we don't get to see each other during the day, but it often feels like a waste of time.
    I took a pay cut from the local school district of 38K down to 33K.

    Advice to Management

    K12 is a great company to work for, I love working remote.

    I worked at K12 full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are sufficient enough. The time-off is sufficient enough. Some co-workers are nice enough to work with. The fact you can work from home.

    Cons

    No communication with upper-management. People have no confidentiality and even more rumors are spread through e-mail. You are blamed for students placed in classes when you weren't the one who placed them there. Wrong people are being hired.

    Advice to Management

    Your virtual staff are all lazy and unappreciative. Have them report to work so that they can actually WORK!!!!
