    Pros

    The leadership in this company is second to none! There is no brow beating of the sales staff, there is no micro managing, there is no belittling those that might miss a quota, as long as they're showing effort and improvement. I feel VALUED at Varsity Tutors, and having been in phone sales for 25+ years, I can tell you that that is a RARE feeling. I am constantly encouraged and praised, and when I struggle, my manager asks me what she can do to help me, as opposed to berating me for not hitting my metrics. I will stay at VT as long as they'll have me. I have never been happier with an organization, and I've been here for 2+ years, so the "honeymoon" is over and I'm still very pleased with my job.

    Cons

    I am remote agent, and work from home, so the ONLY con that I can think of is that you miss out on all of the office festivities, especially during the holidays. However, the pros of working from home far outweigh what you're missing out on in the office, and the remote leadership staff still makes you feel included and valued.

    Advice to Management

    Please keep doing what you're doing - you are all amazing.

    Pros

    -Strong relationships with team. Really great people in the entire company!
    -Fast-paced and innovative.
    -Continuously making strides to improve and grow product, services, company culture.
    -Flexibility

    Cons

    -Path to advancement varies depending on the department.
    -It's a test and grow culture with lots of iterations - not a con, but should be aware that being comfortable with ambiguity is needed.

    Advice to Management

    Varsity has grown tremendously in the time I've been here and I have no doubt the company will continue to grow and be successful! Keep it up with the time invested in asking for feedback and listening to employees to build the company culture, product, and services and making strides with change management and communications. Continue to develop L&D and leadership programs so employees are engaged, connected, and growing.

    Advice to Management

    It is so obvious how much time the entire executive team puts into making sure the employees actually enjoy coming to work. Yes we are expected to work hard, but we are also rewarded with some great perks and the teamwork atmosphere is unmatched. Keep doing what you're doing!
