    I have been working at PeopleAdmin full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    A lot of growth potential in the company. Many people have been promoted Great co workers with a lot of great ideas Gaining momentum in the education industry and seeing a passion for what we do

    Cons

    Being a SaaS company, you have to handle a lot of change Still some negative people who worked at company's acquired, who need to move on from what was done back then

    Advice to Management

    Continue to improve on communication. It is a lot better but can still improve

    I worked at PeopleAdmin full-time

    Pros

    The people were the best. Once PowerSchool took over, anyone with talent or ambition was run out & many desks remained empty.

    Cons

    They foster an environment of complacency & do not have time for anyone who wants to grow or succeed within their role or department. PeopleAdmin sells a higher education product and PowerSchool, a K-12 market product, does not understand the needs of the employees or the clients. I’ve never seen so many ‘managers’ and ‘executives’ blatantly ignore issues & turn a blind eye to the daily dumpster fires blazing....

    Advice to Management

    When the clients notice the revolving door of executive staff all the way down to support team members, you’re doing something wrong. Listen to the reviews on here from people who loves their job & their teams that you’ve disbanded.

    I worked at PeopleAdmin full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    There are the usual software benefits like health insurance, matching 401k, unlimited PTO, free drinks and snacks, etc. The customers and your coworkers are actually the best part of the company. Because the customer base is HR for education, you are dealing with (usually) really nice people with good social skills. If you communicate with them regularly and honestly try to help them, they will forgive you alot. Seriously,...

    Cons

    The company has been bought, which means potential layoffs within the next 6 months. You might want to wait until after that to consider applying. There is a serious problem with a lack of accountability. Some people do the bare minimum to get by, and the managers don't appear to do anything about it. It's very frustrating for the employees who have to then work even harder to pick up the slack from the slacker employee....

    Advice to Management

    Managers: It is bad business to not hold all employees to the same standard. You might think it's okay to put up with bad behaviors because it's hard to find people to hire, but it is better to do the same level of work with good people until a new person is hired to reduce the load than do the same level of work with good people and a couple bad people who barely work at all. It causes a lot of resentment and can make...

    I have been working at PeopleAdmin full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Flexibility- If I need to take half of the day off, I can make it up in the evening- it’s nice to be able to attend family and friend functions with no question. Any training I’ve asked for, I’ve always been provided with, or given the freedom to seek outside if it wasn’t what I was looking for. Work/Life Balance- While it is work, and sometimes you have to do actual work, working here makes the day go by that much...

    Cons

    Employee morale- Quite a few of these postings are made to make the company seem like it’s the worst place to work. These postings are easy to read through and see where an employee is frustrated, yet doesn’t take the proper channels to air those frustrations or communicate to anyone that there is an issue. Not happy with the company events? Try joining the events team that meets once a quarter. If you don’t want to join,...

    Advice to Management

    Two things: 1) make people more familiar with the Insights learning (please bring it back!) and how to communicate with people who process information differently. Would love to have monthly/quarterly training/refreshers on how to word emails so everyone is able to digest 2) Maybe start asking people to review, since all of the reviews here say we’re constantly told to leave good reviews. In the almost 3 years I’ve...

    Cons

    The environment is child's play and leadership plays favorites. Not much company loyalty. The Company also has been boughten out countless of times if that says much.

    I have been working at PeopleAdmin full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Lots of free food like daily snacks and drinks. Most of the people you work with on the lower levels are really smart and good to work with. Good place to start out and gain tech experience for that next position. The company has a good mission and products that do provide value to our customers, helping them to improve Education.

    Cons

    Constant changes to policies and procedures that will negatively impact you as a front line employee serving the company's customers. Of course, none of these changes will apply to Mid, Upper and Executive level Management. No real training program so as a new employee you will be expected to train yourself on the company's multitude of different products, some having limited or no documentation on how to use them....

    Advice to Management

    Actually come work in one of the different offices, KC or Austin, before making unfair policy changes that don't effect you. Pretty easy to tell folks they cannot work from home when you get to sit in your home every day as a remote employee. Then again, why should policies apply to Upper and Executive level Managers, right? Oh, I would love to talk with HR and Blaha about this if I believed they would actually care but...
