    I have been working at K12 full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Work from home-- the flexibility in this job is nice, since you can work wherever there is an internet connection. Great staff relations in an online community.

    Cons

    After reaching full-time, there is not much more you can advance (at least in salary). There is no salary increase for earning a Master's degree or further.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the focusing on relationships with your staff members-- it is a great community you have. Possibly more opportunities for full-timers to advance in salary.

    Pros

    At K12, you'll be at the forefront of virtual education. The creative team is especialy awesome with great minds and great innovations.

    Cons

    If you come from the Beltway, unless you take slower alternate routes, you will incur costs for taking the Dulles Toll Road.

    I worked at K12 as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good starting job. The pay is nice and there is ample opportunity to work overtime when the volume of documents picks up.

    Cons

    The work can get grueling near the end of the contract, and your time worked is subject to change if the volume of documents is too low.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management is fine. I have no advice to offer.

    I have been working at K12 full-time

    Pros

    Working remotely, working with teachers, flexibility for scheduling.

    Cons

    Politics and lack of transparency within administration. Extremely low salary for the position.

    Advice to Management

    Coaches need to be better paid. In addition, new hire coaches should not be hired on at higher salaries than existing coaches. HR directive to "not discuss salaries" is illegal.
