    I worked at K12 full-time

    Pros

    Opportunities to learn are exponential and upward mobility very attainable with a good work ethic and quality results! The people are amazing.

    Cons

    Work and life balance is something I never figured out working for K12.

    Advice to Management

    Coaching and development of employees is an area of need.

    I worked at K12 full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great compensation for level of work. During busy season unlimited overtime is offered and bonus structure can be extremely lucrative. Potentially able to double monthly income during busy season. Busiest time of year is July through September. January can be very busy as well.

    Cons

    It is a true call center experience. If you're not willing to clock in and make phone calls all day you won't be happy in this position.
    Bonus structure changes occasionally. Depending on budget projections from corporate the bonuses can change, however, that is typically given plenty of time in advance.

    Advice to Management

    Expectations and information change somewhat frequently. Conveyed well most of the time but ensuring supervisors are not just going through the motions and actually helping agents improve performance.

    Pros

    Job flexibility. Working from home is awesome! I have a fabulous supervisor. Kimberly Taylor is the best person to work for, truly!!!

    Cons

    I want a full time position, but student enrollment doesn't justify it yet.
    The pay isn't great.

    Advice to Management

    Continue keeping team players in leadership positions. It truly is the reason i hung in there in the beginning when it was difficult.

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

    Pros

    Work as a teacher from home, great team environment, flexible scheduling, work with professionals who make a difference with students on a daily basis.

    Cons

    Working from home it is easy to slide into a habit of logging in many hours including the weekend. Suggestion- use the calendar to organize and plan your time. Pay is less than brick and mortar. Students have to get used to being on-line and sometimes this slows their progress.

    Advice to Management

    I have loved the four managers I have had.

    I really haven't come across any yet.

    Advice to Management

    Just keep at it!
