    I have been working at PresenceLearning full-time

    Pros

    This is an opportunity to do work worth doing every single day with smart, talented people who are also driven by the mission. Despite its growing pains, the company has still been able to retain and attract top talent as illustrated by some amazing recent hires (CEO, VP Sales, and more to come). There's a lot we have to be proud of.

    Cons

    The benefits could be better.

    Advice to Management

    Collaborate more with people throughout the organization to help set priorities and solve problems.

    Pros

    Hired a new CEO that has the focus and vision the company needs.
    The company is filling key positions that are needed to move the company forward and to the next level of growth.
    Recently added a Sales leader with proven experience building and leading a successful Sales team in Special Education.
    The people who remain are committed to the mission.

    There is currently no 401k match.

    Advice to Management

    There have been a lot of changes but most of them seem to be for the good and Glassdoor doesn't reflect that. Please find a way to fix your Glassdoor!

    I worked at PresenceLearning full-time

    Pros

    Strong compensation plan, but they do not have enough supply for sales reps to hit their goals.

    Cons

    They are focused on financial margins over student impact. Not willing to address the churn of clinicians and staff.

    The executive team cannot be trusted and the company’s future looks bleak. They do not understand their core business; think of themselves as a tech company as opposed to being a staffing company that provides therapy services online.

    Advice to Management

    The executive team cannot he trusted.

    I worked at PresenceLearning full-time

    Pros

    Have the ability to be an innovator and to help children in need

    Cons

    The current leadership is highly influenced by team members that are simply interested in keep their jobs. The amount of backstabbing and reward for poor decisions is astounding and truly unnerving. Their focus is on profit margins and rarely did I hear any mention that motivation for providing services was to help children.

    Unfortunately, the culture has become one of finger pointing and blame as the ship sinks very quickly. Sadly, I don't see PresenceLearning surviving much longer.

    Advice to Management

    Hire executive management that understands the K12 market and Special Education.
