Terrible Management and No Advancement opportunities
Outbound Marketing (Current Employee) –  Madison, WINovember 29, 2016
This company does not care about its mission, employees, or even about its self. Sales department is literally bleeding money, Marketing cannot tell their heads from their butts, tech is dizzy trying to catch the competition and everyone else falls short too. There is no development or opportunity to advance, it is not uncommon for employees with 10 years of experience to share a job title with entry level applicants. Little to no direction. Run, and run fast from this "Wisconsin Nice" black hole.
Pros
Free coffee and cheese curds from time to time
Cons
No staff development and mid/upper management is a JOKE

Assistant Pre-K Teacher (Current Employee) –  Atlanta, GAMarch 3, 2016
A typical day at work includes me engaging with my students and their parents to help achieve individual educational requirements. Over the years I have learned that children brains are sponges, the more you expose them to at an early age the easier it is for them to absorb it!
Pros
Paid vacation and sick time

Lean and Agile company a great place to work and advance your skills
Marketing Digital Media Specialist (Former Employee) –  Wisconsin Rapids, WIJanuary 4, 2016
If are young and starting out, this is a great company to be at. They will work with you and encourage you to learn more and continue to grow in your field.

You will stay very busy and sometimes they have to push the envelope, but you will get plenty of support.

Projects can be challenging and rewarding at the same time.

There is room for improvement, but overall not a bad company to work for
Editor (Current Employee) –  West CoastJuly 29, 2015
Supportive management with a family friendly culture. We have the ability to set our own hours (within reason of office hours) and work from home when it is necessary. Management makes themselves rarely seen and rarely heard, but there when they are needed, which I think is nice because we aren't being micromanaged through our daily tasks. People are trusted to get work done and everyone is expected to chip in as a team player.

There has been difficulties with a perceived change in the culture recently and that's been a struggle.

The company would prefer to higher externally instead of train and advance the workforce they have, so there are really no advancement opportunities. There has been little to no career growth support. The compensation for content development is extremely low, even for the field of education publishing.
Pros
Relaxed working hours, Ability to work from home, self management
Cons
benefit packages, compensation, lack of advancement opportunities
