B2B/B2G Training Advisor/Territory Manager (Former Employee) – Herndon, VA – September 7, 2016
massive layoffs, spending more money than the make. I am not sure how much longer they can make it. Not a lot of security here. they have some nice people that work there but a lot of management does not know what they are doing.
OPERATIONS COMPUTER LAB SUPERVISOR (Former Employee) – Reston, VA – February 20, 2015
Learning Tree was a fantastic place to work until 2012. Following the management change there was no longer any concern regarding moral, treatment of the employees, or honestly in running the business. I've never seen a sign telling employees the CEO was taking a nap before. Layoffs and random firings became the norm. The new employee tests made it difficult to hire anyone with a solid skill set. The one redeeming factor was the people, outside of the upper management everyone was more or less great.
Project Coordinator (Current Employee) – Reston, VA – February 25, 2015
The people seem super genuine at first. It's fake. Those that have been there for the longest time hate when young professionals offer more modern and efficient ways to change things. They are stuck in their ways and management has their hand in too many futile things causing a lack of vision and seeing the big picture.
Able to telecommute on rare occasions. Pizza parties.
Corporate Sales Support (Former Employee) – Reston, VA – April 30, 2013
A typical day at work was very busy. Lots of exciting logistical issues for our onsite training classes. I learned that I could count on my coworkers at every turn. They were and are one of the best teams I have ever worked with on a daily basis for almost 6 years. I will miss the work and the many friends I made there, that made each day at work that much better.
The hardest part of my job, was keeping track of all the one-off training classes with special logistical challenges. i.e., security getting into a facility, background checks for our instructors, just to teach at their location.
One of the most enjoyable aspects of my job, were the folks I worked with on a daily basis. There is no better feeling in the morning, than wanting to go to work, because you enjoy the folks you work with.
Free bagels and donuts each Friday, free fruit everday.
Residential Assistant (Current Employee) – Tallassee, AL – October 8, 2015
A typical a for me is either a calm day or a active day. Working at the Learning tree you always have to have your guards up and stay on your toes this is a job you can never get distracted always have to pay close attention to the consumers. Working here you have to ignore allegations never take anything personal that is being said by the consumer, also have to have patients, and a heart but you also have to have a back bone. management at this job is complicated because no one is never on the same page with the consumer everybody do different things on different shifts so it makes everything hard on the workers, when I think everything should be done by the book(rules) and everything would be the same. Always staying cautious because you'll never know what would happen that's why the consumers are monitored closely. My most enjoyable part is bonding with the consumers helping the out with things calming them down so that everyone could have a good day going on outings so they could enjoy there selves and get what they want. My job can be difficult at times but ones you sit down and bond with them everything is great you just have to be patient and have a heart.
IT Branch Technician (Current Employee) – New York, NY – April 20, 2015
I worked with great hard working IT people. The Product Development department is excellent at providing assistance to the technicians.
A typical work day involved preparing for the next weeks classes, procuring correct course loads, deploying theses course loads and post deployment configurations. Answer to all support issues in live classes as well as close Tier 2 tickets downgraded to the branch level.
I learned a lot here being that it's an IT training School for Professionals. Python, Active Directory and some System Admin work are some of the tools I picked up here as well as an ability to solve problems and prioritize work in order to meet deadlines.
The hardest part of the job was sometimes we did have missing or conflicting information with regards to the loading of classes. I quickly learned who to contact in order to get the latest info depending on the issue.
I truly enjoyed being in charge of the New York Ed Center and the self reliance it empowered me with. I have gained very valuble experience on this job.
