    Pros

    Worker bees hard working and trying to do what is requested of them.

    Cons

    Toxic executive management environment. Say one thing and do another. Trying to move in too many directions without a clear path being broadcast to the masses.

    Advice to Management

    Take a hard look at the environment you have created. Most levels below you are extremely dissatisfied and struggle to keep up with the workload.

    I worked at Learning Tree International full-time

    Pros

    All the pros seem to be back in the day. Employees talk a lot about how things were so much better. The company does try to make things fun for the employees.

    Cons

    The pay is very low and the work was exhausting and no one seemed to care. It was very chaotic and I think unless you were with the company for many years hoping for the way it used to be, you don't know what you are looking forward to or working towards. Every thing was fake, although the events were fun it really was Human Resources desperately trying to pretend the company was good to work for. But no one falls for it. It comes across as very fake. The Sales department is in shambles. It needs to be completely restructured.

    Advice to Management

    I don't know where to begin. The company is falling apart. I actually believed I was very much lied to during the recruitment process. Tell HR not to lie to candidates in a desperate approach to find candidates.

    Pros

    The regular workforce has some very loyal and smart employees who want to see this company succeed. New chairman of the board was very impressive at our Town Hall.

    Cons

    Senior management really needs an overhaul. Since the new top dog came three years ago, our revenue is still in the red despite major cost cutting and strategy changes (i.e. partnerships). Since that time, senior management has stayed mostly the same and again, not profitable. So what did we do? We just hired yet another senior manager (?!?!) Employees run amok in this company with little (if any) consequences. Common sense seems lacking in management - for example, back under different management and when we were profitable and employees received raises, we held our Holiday Party at a mid-range chain restaurant. Last year and this year? We are having it at an expensive restaurant in a high district location. Even if it is in the budget, the optics of that to hard working employees who NEED raises is quite frankly- frivolous.

    Advice to Management

    Stop worrying about burying reviews with empty “glowing” reviews and take a good hard look at your leadership (or lack thereof) and make some sound decisions. And if we do win some business, you still need to make some changes!

    I worked at Learning Tree International full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    • Great, hard-working employees
    • Good work/life balance

    Cons

    • Systems are antiquated, so the information cannot be easily automated
    • Processes are inefficient, or non-existent, so there are lots of unnecessary work-arounds
    • 401K match is low

    Advice to Management

    Take time to fully analyze how the processes, and who will be responsible for maintaining them, prior to onboarding new ideas.
