    I have been working at Schoology full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The people that work at Schoology are smart, passionate, and collaborative. It's awesome to come into an office and be surrounded by those kinds of individuals every day. Employees at Schoology understand the mission "to continually advance what's possible in Education" and realize that we're working toward something big! Most managers are very supportive of their teams and provide help and guidance as employees...

    Cons

    Things at Schoology move quickly, and changes are frequently made to keep up. Not necessarily a con but just something to point out!

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be transparent and accessible for your employees.

    Cons

    A younger company with rapid growth will naturally have some growing pains, but there are no real cons that outweigh the wonderful culture and experience at Schoology.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to heavily invest in the people and their experience. Happy employees will result in reaching our goals!

    Pros

    There is great passion here, and so much opportunity to make a difference every single day. Having worked in K12, it matters to me that what we do is part of everyone’s passion. It is, and that makes this a great place to work.

    Cons

    Any cons that I’d cite are really just normal pains associated with growing as aggressively as this company is.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!!!

    Pros

    - Great mission - Great people - Great product Schoology is a great place to work for. It is a company full of open minded people. From the leadership down to every team member. It is incredible how much Schoology has been changing, for better!

    Cons

    Nothing to say. I really can't think of anything that would add value here. Schoology is a good company and things are continuously getting better and better and better.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the great work. Continue to empower people. Continue to invest on people. Everything else becomes easy. :-)

    I worked at Schoology full-time

    Pros

    Awesome, smart, motivated, innovative co-workers, nice office space, good product, fair salary and good benefits.

    Cons

    High employee turnover, increasingly declining culture. High turnover led to taking on WAY more than your workload to cover for open positions for months and months at a time. Vague mission: "advance what's possible in education" ... the only thing leadership cared about was making more money

    Advice to Management

    Be transparent, care about your human capital, invest in your people's growth

    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...

    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...

    Advice to Management

    Hiring process should be more rigorous and more structured across departments. Some managers join with no management experience and make poor hiring choices. Transparency has gone down a bit, with managers withholding information from their teams and leadership sugarcoating failures.

    Pros

    First in class product with an amazing mission. The community behind the product is inspiring and is constantly growing making your job more valuable and easier. I have been with Schoology for over 3 years. I started out as an account executive and quickly moved up the ladder. Once I identified the role I wanted to move into, management helped me hit that goal. We structured a plan and how I would get to the next...

    Cons

    No matching 401K I have seen this take effect in the last several months but we can continue to improve. Be more transparent with employees about performance. The office environment is still fun but our outings decreased

    Advice to Management

    More team building events will bring team members together. This can also be beneficial for those who don't know each other in other departments.
