    work closely with families and meet students' individual needs. work from home.

    Cons

    If you are extremely social and prefer large groups, this may not be the employer for you. At K12, Inc. 99% of your work time is work from home. You will have face to face work events 2 or 3 times per year, but for the most part, it is not face to face contact with fellow employees.

    Pros

    Beautiful mission w/ passionate people working together in support of every school and student we serve. Impressed with recent hires, including several VPs and above within School Services and Product Development. Culture is improving as we continue to put students first and drive improvements to how our individual and collective efforts positively impact student outcomes. Fortunate to have Nate Davis and Kevin Chavous in key leadership positions.

    Cons

    Total compensation is low for Northern Virginia (where HQ is located).
    We've recently lost some talented females (directors and above) in the last few months
