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

    Pros

    Because K12 is a a giant relative to most edtech companies, employees benefit from the perks of working at a large company -- talented leadership, abundant resources, name recognition, career development opportunities, etc. As the education field continues to shift towards digital solutions, K12 is uniquely positioned to lead in this ever-changing space, thus making the K12 staff's roles dynamic and exciting.

    The office culture is comfortable and family-friendly. Most floors are cleared out by 5:30pm and many employees work from home 1-5 days a week. Employees are generally pleasant and driven.

    Cons

    K12's status as a for-profit school provider makes it a target for bad press (don't believe everything you read!). Also, it can occasionally be difficult to work cross-departmentally, though that seems to be changing recently.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let K12's size keep us from being nimble and continuing to innovate.

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

    Pros

    Operates similar to brick and mortar schools in many ways. Curriculum is canned. Every K12 school operates differently.

    Cons

    Curriculum is canned. Teachers are expected to fulfill non-teaching duties.

    Advice to Management

    There should be more abilities to differentiate curriculum to the needs of the learners.

    I have been working at K12 full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Being able to work from home, innovative company and great k12 student curriculum. Organized company at the front of technology instruction online

    Cons

    K12 has a company became like a dictator this year. They have stopped fighting for teachers and when teachers share that policies they put into place by NON teachers is not best practices or working for students, we are not listened to. I am losing faith after 8 years here and that is saying something because I love my job and I love being an online teacher. This company has really low morale and we are just told it is our fault. The fact is, they won't listen and they are going to lose really really good teachers as a result.
