      Pros

      Very good co-workers, smart and always supportive; genuinely interested in making a difference in education; very good at identifying issues internally and resolving them to provide the best experience for students and to delight our customers

      Cons

      Late winter and early spring are very stressful periods at the company, but it's getting better than it used to be.

      The absolute worst company

      Pros

      There is not one. Not a single positive thing I can say about working for this company. I guess I could say that the colleagues in which I shared the misery were good people.

      Cons

      - deceitful leadership - expected to work very long hours at any time of day. Unsympathetic leadership - painfully outdated technology - depressing location

      Good but not great

      Pros

      Hard-working staff; genuinely interested in making a difference in education; very good at identifying issues internally and setting up meetings to talk about it

      Cons

      lots of spinning wheels after those meetings. A lot gets suggested but the follow up is very inconsistent; staffing levels way to low in multiple areas. "Do more with less" only goes so far before people burn out; high management turnover rate; reactive instead of proactive in most situations; varying levels of accountability

      Pros

      The people. Great people. The work. Valuable work. The friendships. Wonderful reuniting with old friends each season.

      Cons

      The divisive union-management like style where the hourly folks are not even acknowledged with a hello from salaried staff when passing by in hallways. A photo board of employees of the month with unrecognizable faces of salaried folks who stay behind closed doors and never socialize with the hourly workers who are their bread and butter. The fancy cars in the lot showing the obvious and significant pay gap between salaries and hourly pay which by the way has not increased in nearly ten years and will soon be equal to federal minimum wage yet a four year degree is required. The exclusion of hourly workers at company holiday parties barbecues volunteer outings and other social gatherings .. yes, they have even announced these parties over intercoms with us uninvited peons listening yet knowing we are being sent home early without pay to accommodate their fun events. If there was a book on how to destroy worker morale, this company would be in every chapter.

      Failing Company Alert

      Feb 10, 2021 - Assessment Specialist 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      A few coworkers of course :)

      Cons

      Every employee is either over worked and underpaid or overpaid with zero contribution to the company. No resources to effectively do your job. Processes change constantly so upper management can achieve their “goals.” Zero vision for future growth. When this company goes under it’s not because of COVID-19 or changes in the assessment industry.
