    Pros

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

    Cons

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

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

    Pros

    The people are wonderful. I made so many lifetime friends working for K12 that I will never forget it.

    Cons

    The top management turnover causes turnover all over. People can't feel secure in their jobs so they have to find a secure alternative.

    Advice to Management

    I found security but the opportunities to help students are greater at K12 than anywhere else. I miss the feeling of making a difference. Please appreciate those who stayed and try to control turnover.

    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 have been working at K12 full-time

    Pros

    I can say people and environment are great.
    We have flexible working hours. Since K12 is enterprise company so tools /software and process are pretty much matured.

    Cons

    I don't see much more about negative sides. But it will be greate if they will have great 401(k) matching .

    Pros

    Good Pay. Weekends Off. .

    Cons

    Poor management. Goals that are impossible to reach. New hires go through 1 week of training then are thrown out on the floor to make calls not knowing what to do or how to do it. When ask for help, you get ignored or told to figure it out your self. They dont care about the people just the numbers. My training class started with 50+ people and ended with maybe 20. They hire contractors all the time because they cant keep people.
