The company is a relaxed atmosphere and if you are under the right management you can learn a lot. Unfortunately, there are times where personal relationships with senior staff can outshine people who work hard. That is something that can happen any where though.

Pros: flexibility, benefits
My direct manager was great, but when you get into the upper levels of leadership, they don't do a very good job of supporting the sales force and helping us feel valued.
Benefits are good and the work-life balance is as well. Other than upper management, the people at Skillsoft are all great as well. It is a sales-driven organization, so the bulk of employees are salespeople.
Although the lessons are very good it is impossible to print class certifications. After taking some of the 6-8 hours courses, I would like to be able to download/print a certificate but this has been an ongoing problem.
Job Work/Life Balance
Fast-paced, challenging environment
Senior Program Manager/Program Manager (Current Employee), Nashua, NH – February 28, 2013
Skillsoft is a leading provider of e-learning solutions on a global basis. The number and diversity of languages that the content and learning management system must support makes rolling out a new content type and/or feature in the LMS quite challenging. The program management office has worked hard to bring software development life cycle processes into the organization, and the effort continues today. While sometimes chaotic, life at Skillsoft is never dull.
