Company Treats Employees Poorly, Lacks Vision, Misrepresents Growth Opportunities
Pros: lots of talented recruits
Cons: poor compensation, no growth opportunities (though they tell you otherwise), very high turnover rates
Cofounders and senior leadership lack vision and are poor managers -- goals are communicated poorly, and then often shift just a few weeks or months after being implemented.
They advertise themselves as a very "entrepreneurial" company that is fast paced and fun, when in reality, they are a burn out machine full of politics and scheming.
They tell you that they have a social mission, and are out to transform education, but in reality, management most often talks about getting the most out of their school partners and internally, they blame lack of sales, etc on "bad" or "lazy" teachers and demean their educational partners.
