      Pros

      +Culture and commitment - Schoology wants to get it right for schools and school systems and they understand that doing that means getting it right for students, parents, teachers, and administrators + Employees - Smart folks who are open and welcoming to new team members, diverse ideas, and new information + Management is engaged in active dialogue with employees and staff which further supports the culture + Lots of perks AND WOW! What an amazing customer base - the true testament to the company is how the users of Schoology are avid fans and users - teachers and administrators are making the difference in the lives of students and with everyone moving in that direction, it is an exciting place to work!

      Cons

      I would hate to say it is perfect because no one would believe that, but I am struggling to write something here. Having come from a company where I would run out of space in this category, I just want to say that an interview with the folks who work here would confirm if this is the place for you.

      Worked at other NYC "best places"...

      Jul 17, 2019 - Sales Enablement Manager in New York, NY

      Pros

      ... and this place is better! All the standard start-up perks of course - stocked kitchen, cold brew coffee, beer on tap, pool table, cornhole, video and board games that people actually take advantage of, company gatherings, etc... Unlimited PTO and flexible work hours that are actually encouraged you take advantage of But what separates Schoology from the sea of tech start-ups in NYC is an Exec Team that genuinely cares about its people. They are all open and friendly and take any and all concerns seriously and proactively try to fix. They all care about your development while you are here and there are increasingly more professional development opportunities that simply do not exist for a company of this size anywhere else.

      Cons

      Since we are K-12 focused, we have a great deal of former educators that transition from the classroom to working here. While I think this is actually a tremendous pro, sometime the lack of start-up experience leads to a few pitfalls in understanding the rapid changing environment of a start-up... especially in sales.

      Mission-based edTech company that's doing business right...

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Schoology is a mission-based company with a culture that's very well balanced. The balance comes from us being mission-based but also because we're aVC/PE backed, for-profit company. We have a pragmatic, experienced leadership team that's always available and open (office hours) to connect. This is also a co-founder led company which helps us stay true to our mission.

      Cons

      Perhaps not enough resources to do more?

      Pros

      - The employees truly want to improve K-12 education - Everyone is open to new ideas and innovative ways to solve problems - The culture is fantastic. Every is friendly, open, and honest with each

      Cons

      The same "cons" as every other company: - Sometimes we can get analysis paralysis before making a decision - K-12 is a slow moving market compared to other industries. That can be frustrating for a fast moving company

      Great environment to work and grow your career. There are always opportunities for professional development and training. The refrigerator is always stocked with Freshdirect.

      Happy overall, not without flaws

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Flexible work culture / strong work life balance if you are performing/hitting your goals (free food is also nice) - Schoology (the product) is a strong product that many teachers & students really do love - Established enough to have structure but young enough to still reap the benefits as far as relaxed culture and ability to have a voice both in your department and in your professional trajectory, also there's the option of wearing additional "hats" if you would like.

      Cons

      - Not quite a con, but beware, change will happen a lot, people will be imperfect, that doesn't mean it's an awful place - Some people are very driven and intelligent, others not so much. Hiring needs to improve. Same thing with managers, some are strong, some do not deserve to manage others, and this negatively impacts the company. - Claims to be a mission driven company when in reality many on staff have no interest in aligning to the mission or diving into the education space - At the end of the day, no matter what they say, everything is a business, and it all comes back to numbers and profitability.
